Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Austria activity vacation, Climb the Grossglockner

Environment

MoaAlm is situated at 1800m, it is 2km up the mountain from the settlement of Taurer. MoaAlm is only accessible with our own vehicle or by foot. We will provide pick up and drop off on arrival/departure to your vehicle or your airport transfer in Lienz. Hiking and walking is how we get around - far more suited to our goal of enjoying and preserving the natural beauty of the Hohe Tauern National Park.

Some days may involve carrying a picnic on a hike - guests will be encouraged to take all waste away with them and will be shown the importance of keeping the mountain pristine. 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 the 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.

Community

We believe that food tastes best when it has been grown close to home. All our food is fresh and will be sourced locally where possible. And we are in luck - our region provides amazing produce such as bread, cheese and chocolate!

No one knows the mountains better than the people who grew up there! We work together with the local community of mountain guides to provide certain activities that require extensive knowledge and experience such as rock climbing, rafting, tour skiing, and paragliding.

In and around the village of Kals there are some excellent restaurants. Our guests will eat out at a local recommended restaurant on one of the evenings. If the guests choose to go on a day-trip, they might also eat out in parts of the region East Tirol, such as Lienz or Hallstadt.

Local tradesmen have been involved in the renovation of MoaAlm and we have been 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.
