Sometimes you want to get dirty in the wilderness during the day, but kick back in luxury at night. For that, Natura Vive Skylodge Adventure Suites are just the ticket. The suites are transparent pods suspended along the mountainside 1,300 feet (400 meters) above the ground of Peru's Sacred Valley. Talk about a bird's eye view!

Reach For The Sky

The Skylodge is owned and operated by two entrepreneurs who also happen to be seasoned climbers, so it comes as no surprise that you need a sense of adventure to get there. They're only accessible by a 1,300-foot (396-meters) climb or a zipline-assisted hike. The same goes for the descent. But once you get inside, it's all luxury. Each pod has beds with cotton sheets and down comforters, a dining area, and a separate bathroom. There's a platform above the pods where you can have breakfast, and you can even have a gourmet dinner and a bottle of wine brought to your pod. It'll certainly be your most luxurious experience on top of a mountain. (In your face, glamping!)

An Eco-Friendly Adventure

The pods are 24 feet by 8 feet (7.3 meters by 2.4 meters) and made of aerospace aluminum and weather-resistant polycarbonate. Because they're see-through, guests can enjoy stunning 300-degree panoramic views of the valley below and the stars above, and also watch condors (or what the hosts refer to as "your sky neighbors") fly by. The accommodations are also considerably eco-friendly, with interiors that are lit by solar power and bathrooms with dry, eco-friendly toilets. There are only 3 suites that, together, can accommodate 8 total guests, so we'd advise booking ahead.
