Destinations :: Skylodge Adventure Suites, Peru

Since you are visiting Expedition Portal, we’ll assume that you’re an adventurer. But just how adventurous are you? Would you scale a sheer cliff face or ride an exposed zip line to get to your evening accommodations? If you find yourself in Peru’s Sacred Valley, don’t pass up the opportunity to visit the Skylodge Adventure Suites. And to get there, you have to climb or zip line your way onto a mountainside where you can spend a night under the stars in a translucent sleeping pod, affixed to the side of the cliff face with steel cables.

 

Sleep on the Side of a Mountain—Literally

At the Skylodge, getting to your bed might just be the most adventurous thing you do all day. Visitors have one of two options: they can scale a 400-meter-high Ferrata climbing route or navigate an exposed hiking trail with mandatory zip lines to get to their evening accommodations. But don’t worry, if you book a stay at this unique destination, a bilingual guide is included to make sure that you arrive at your bedroom in one piece. Also included with your sleeping pod booking are transportation to and from Cusco, breakfast, and a gourmet dinner (complete with wine and views of the Milky Way).
