About us

About our company WearActive

Xania and Craig started WearActive 9 years ago. They offer ‘relaxingly active’ holidays on the Croatian Island of Vis. Last year they opened a new location in the Alps of East Tirol, Austria. Because Xania and Craig only live at MoaAlm in winter time, Hubert and Barbara became the full-time managers of WearActive Austria.

Our philosophy at WearActive is that being active in the outdoors helps people truly relax during their holiday.

We love nature so we make sure that our business does not disturb nature (or at least as little as possible). We use solar energy, we recycle our waste, we source our supplies locally, and we eat organic when possible.

About MoaAlm

MoaAlm is a recently renovated small guesthouse at 1800m in the middle of Hohe Tauern National Park in Austria. Our location is truly something special: the views from the house are stunning. Many hike routes start from the house and in winter you can ski down from the house to the ski lifts. The 'garden' is filled marmots, gams and deer. All beautiful places are remote, this is no exception at MoaAlm! We are surrounded by mountains. The village of Kals is a 45 minute walk away, from which public transportation can be used. Lienz is the nearest city (30km).

MoaAlm is a guest house and a cafe.

Our main business is having house guests. House guest are people that booked a holiday with us: they eat, sleep, do yoga and undertake outdoor activities with us. You will have breakfast and dinner with us and with the house guests. We like to have a personalized and homely atmosphere at our large dinning table, which makes us different from your average guest house.

MoaAlm is also a cafe. The MoaAlm cafe opens during the high season (end June – end of August in summer) for people that pass by during their hikes on 5 days per week from about 11.00 to 16.00. The cafe has a stylish retro interior and a sun terrace with the best views in the entire region. So far, the menu has been small as we want to focus on a fresh, organic and home made meals.


Why are we exciting?

Location, location, location!

MoaAlm is situated in truly one of the most beuatiful places of Europe! The house is located at 1800 meters above sea level at the border of Hohe Tauern National Park. The surroundings of MoaAlm are one big playground - we love to go hiking, biking, skiing, cross country skiing, paragliding, climbing, canyoning, rafting but even for those less sporty it is a treat to wake up these views (see picture!) and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Wildlife is all around us an we are humbled by its precence every day. 

Outdoor activities

If you like outdoor activities MoaAlm might just be the place for you to live and work. You can spend all your free time enjoying mountain life! 


Do you like practicing yoga or would you like to start doing so? At MoaAlm we have our own yoga studio and qualified yoga teacher. Everybody working and living at MoaAlm is welcome to join all yoga classes.


At MoaAlm we love food! One of the percks of living and working here is that you eat healthy, real, homemade food every day. We sit down with all are guests at the big dinig table to eat breakfast every day and a 3-course dinner on 6 days of the week.
