We had an amazing and wonderful time. Everyone working at MoaAlm is not only friendly and focused on making sure that you have an incredible holiday but they love what they do as well. If you are thinking about going here for holiday we could not tell you not too. The food is great, the hot tub relaxing, the views are stunning, the location is private, and your body will thank you for all the moving and sports you are going to do. Also you cannot go wrong getting a Cocktail made from Ryan or someone at the bar after hiking with Petra. Book your holiday here because we plan on doing it again.

Moa Alm is situated high in the Austrian Alps with fabulous views, the cleanest air and a cool, chilled out vibe. The long climb to the chalet left me wondering what wilderness I was heading to, but on arrival Anna's warm welcome put me instantly at ease and I was able to soak in the wonderful surroundings that would be my home for the next week. I was introduced to the rest of the staff and guests and it was clear everybody was like minded....we were all there for a combination of well-being, challenging hiking and a healthy appreciation of our environment. Ryan and Lottie were warm, enthusiastic and engaging, they kept me informed of the activities and facilities available to me and helped to gel the group together. Anna started our day with a yoga session, expertly tailored to the guests needs and everyday was different....followed by a fabulous breakfast with lots of local produce and plenty of time to fuel before our day's hike. Petra (a local park ranger) was our guide for 4 out of 5 of our hikes and she was an amazing bundle of energy and knowledge, there wasn't anything she didn't know about the mountains history, flora and fauna! The hikes were both challenging and informative and I learnt some great facts about the mountains and its inhabitants. Every night Becca or Anna created a vegan 3 course feast, the food was imaginative, beautiful and very tasty, it was such a treat to have food served which was prepared with love and creativity. I thoroughly enjoyed my week, had a sense of achievement from the hikes and yoga and loved being around young people who genuinely care about their environment and health. The chalet was spotlessly clean with a simple modern style and a great outdoor area including a hot tub fired by a woodstove. Don't think that it is all clean living....Ryan serves a mean cocktail after dinner or my favourite....delivered to you whilst you chill in the hot tub gazing at the mountains.

Long story short: Definitely recommend; What a wonderful week we had at Moa Alm! Long story: I booked this holiday together with my partner to be in nature, do yoga and relax. We achieved these goals at Moa Alm. I loved how personal the interaction at Moa Alm was. It felt like we were visiting friends who are at the same time amazing hosts. Becca treated us with the most delicious 3-course vegan dinners. Thank you so much. We truly felt inspired by your creativity :) Anne made sure we were well stretched for hiking and feeling relaxed during her yoga classes. I wished there were even more yoga classes with her! Ryan and Lottie went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, well prepared for the hikes (thx for lending sun glasses, a hat, after sun,...), a bit tipsy (great Aperol Sprizz's!!),... They are the best hosts you could wish for. Living in the Netherlands we were not used to hiking with altitude differences and expected 2-4 hour hikes per day. HA! We were quite surprised when they told us that we would hike 4 hrs minimum per day.. In the end we loved the challenge and would definitely choose a yoga/hiking holiday again. If we could change one thing about the holiday it would be a more extensive focus on yoga rather than mostly hiking. For all the Zirbenschnaps, the many rounds of Jungle Speed (that I won, Ryan...), the cuddles with the most energetic dog in the world Szuka, the hottub in the rain,.. Thank you and until next time, lovely people!! Groetjes, Sophie & Jeroen
