Directions

MoaAlm is situated in a remote location close to the village of Kals am Grossglockner in the Austrian Alps. Depending on your means of transportation we will meet you in/at MoaAlm, Kals (our village, 5 minutes drive to MoaAlm), Huben in Osttirol (a nearby village with a bus stop, 20 minutes drive to MoaAlm), or Lienz (the capital of East Tirol, 30 minutes drive to MoaAlm).

Self Drive
In summer we have private parking next to MoaAlm. In winter you will leave your vehicle at the small parking area just past the final fork. We will drive you the last 2 miles up the local 'Rodel Bahn' (sledging track) also known as our driveway.

Plane
Airlines are constantly changing routes and the only way to make sure you have an up to date guide is by going directly to the websites. The nearest airports are Klagenfurt, Salzburg and Innsbruck. Our guests have also flown into Munich and Ljubljana. If you fly into these latter two we advise that you rent a car for transfer to MoaAlm.There are 3 ways to get from the airport to MoaAlm:
1. Airport shuttle taxi: These taxis only operate from Salzburg, Innsbruck and Munich airports in the winter: The tourist office provides a shuttle starting from 70EUR per person one-way on Saturdays - please contact us to book this transfer.
2. Public transport: you can travel by train and/or bus from Innsbruck and Salzburg to Lienz or Huben in Osttirol by public transportation. From Innsbruck main train station there is a direct bus to Lienz four times per day (check-out www. vvt. at). We will pick you up in Lienz or Huben in Osttirol. This is often the cheapest but most time-consuming option. Public transportation in Austria is very reliable and the platforms and directions are clearly indicated. Check-out www. oebb. at for up to date timetables and prices or contact us if you need any help sorting out your options!
3. Car rental: You can also rent a car and drive yourself. This option allows you to explore on your way here. For example, you could skip the Felbertauern tunnel and take the Grossglockner Hoch Alpin Strasse into Osttirol - a stunning mountain road with amazing views. Car rental starts at 140EUR per week. Please check-out rentalcars dot com for more info.

Train
If you don't like flying or driving yourself it might be a good idea to take a train all the way to Austria. The land links in Austria are very reliable and you can find out details of options and prices at oebb dot at - make sure you type 'Lienz in Osttirol' or 'Huben in Osttirol' as your destinations.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica
