Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
MoaAlm is situated at 1800m, it is 2km up the mountain from the settlement of Taurer, a fragile environment which it is our goal to protect.

We serve plant based, locally sourced organic food, and change our menu with the seasons to ensure we are creating as minimul impact on the environment as possible.

Recycling is also a major part of our waste disposal. We only send one bin bag of waste to landfill each season, and are aiming to reduce our plastic usage this year.

Our water is supplied directly from a mountain spring and our heating system is a brand new 'eco' pellet burning system. The P4 pellet system has won many international quality awards in EU and USA, the most prestigious of all are the Blue Angel and the Austrian Ecolabel. Even in winter our south facing position can also provide supplementary energy from our solar bank.

Natural materials have been used in the construction and renovation of MoaAlm where possible and we have been pleased to find a number of high quality, locally produced materials to use in the refurbishment. The local tradesmen we employ are highly skilled, particularly in mediums of wood, stone and locally-produced felt.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Guests will eat out for lunch on occasion and one evening at locally-run recommended restaurants.

We offer a weekly yoga class and coffee morning for local residents.

We support local farmers in taking care of the forestry and the forest tracks around MoaAlm.

The area also has an excellent ski school and advanced mountain guiding network of instructors that guests may choose to take advantage of. All fresh food and drink will be sourced locally where possible.

We will be employ an international team of full time staff who will receive a generous package of accommodation, food, ski pass and salary. Opportunities will also be available through our staff incentive scheme to participate in training courses annually. This scheme is in place to encourage staff to make this a rewarding full time lifestyle choice that can be sustainable rather than just a seasonal short term option.

Local tradesmen have been involved in the renovation of MoaAlm and we have pleased to find a number of high quality, locally produced materials to use in the refurbishment. These tradesmen are highly skilled particularly in mediums of wood, stone and locally produced felt.

The vacation was excellent and Ryan and Lottie, the hosts, were really welcoming. I had a really good time.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Any feedback - possibly start the day a little earlier with yoga at 7 rather than 8 so the walking can start earlier also - but this is a small point in an otherwise
excellent vacation.

A fantastic hike to a mountain hut above the tree line in the snow. It felt like being on top of the world.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Bring lots of layers as the weather is different all the way round the hike from the valley to the peaks. Good waterproof boots will keep you comfortable & dry.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes as the food was locally sourced & our hiking guide lives in the nearest city.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


A fantastic experience from start to end. The house is beautifully decorated & the staff are warm & friendly. All the food was delicious but the plant based food for evening meal was incredible. The hikes were just the right amount of challenge , the scenery was breath taking & Petra our guide incredibly knowledgeable about the area & it’s nature. The yoga was also great & helped stretch out our muscles along with the hot tub with views of snow capped mountains. Nirvana.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The views on our walks were stunning. We had beautiful weather so the colours as autumn approached were amazing. The food was plentiful and delicious!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Pack for all seasons. Be in good shape to be able to fully enjoy the walks - our guide's pace was great but there's a lot of climbing!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We occasionally ate at local restaurants, run by local people. The water was heated by solar panels, food was composted and journeys only made by van when needed.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


A great week in the clean fresh Austrian air, with friendly and welcoming hosts - they made a great team. It's more hiking than yoga oriented as there's just
one hour of yoga a day.

The stunning scenery and beautifully fresh air.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


It’s a great hiking vacation with a really reliable and kind mountain guide and some excellent yoga led by Rosie. The place is pretty remote which has both positives and slight downsides. You get to know everyone in the group pretty well as you’re with them everyday. If you go in the spring/summer, take the ski gondola up to the top, the view is incredible.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, we ate in local places for lunch pretty often. All the food served at MoaAlm is organic.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Pretty good. Fantastic scenery. The food is good (vegetarian) although I didn’t think there was enough of it for the evening meal, when you are most hungry after a day’s activity.

Read the operator's response here:

Thank you Anna for your review - we are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your time at MoaAlm... very sorry though that you didn't feel there was enough food in the evenings and hate to think that you were suffering in silence - we will certainly take this on board and ensure that nobody feels they can't ask for more in future if they are still peckish! Very best wishes, Polly

The whole experience was memorable. Barbara is an amazing yoga teacher and started each day in a perfect way. The hiking was exceptional, from the
local knowledge to the gorgeous views. Each hike was discussed before hand and terrain, challenge and scenery was incorporated for the groups likes and
needs. Every meal was a taste sensation, again with all needs and tastes catered for using local and fresh produce. The atmosphere created by the staff is
one of comfort, caring and openness which made for a very relaxing and comfortable break. Climbing Grossglockner was an amazing highlight and
toasting marshmellows and chatting by firelight was also a memorable experience.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Be prepared for lots of fresh air and have a reasonable amount of fitness, so you can enjoy all aspects of the vacation.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Places to eat on our hikes were at local restaurants, so hopefully local businesses benefited from our visit and also the building of the vacation providers business.
As the vacation is actively walking and yoga, hopefully we didn't impact on the environment in a bad way.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


The whole vacation was an amazing experience. The only improvement would be to include a hot-tub to relieve achy limbs at the end of long, sumptuous walks
:-) . Thank you to Barbara, Hubert, Nelson, Beatrix, Yvonne and team for putting in so much effort to make a truly memorable vacation,

This is a great active / relax vacation with great people. Moa Alm is very

communal eating part of the vacation where guests and staff sit together at
the beginning and end of the day over great food. This is more like being on
vacation with friends

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes. Moa Alm sources all their food from around their area, we stopped at
local huts for food and drinks on our walks. They also have a cafe that is used
by both local and travelers and they put on social events that again bring
together the local and visiting communities.

Excellent -beyond expectations and I have already recommended to friends
