The Skylodge in the Sacred Valley is an unbelievable adventure and one of the most memorable experiences you can have in Peru.
The Skylodge Adventure Suites hotel in the Sacred Valley just 15 minutes from Ollantaytambo. You can’t miss it since the rooms are pods hanging from the side of a 400 meter cliff.
It’s quite an adventure to get there. You must climb up the face of the rock, which has steel hooks embedded in it to help you and a fixed steel wire rope secures climbers for the whole ascent. This is known as a via ferrata and the climb takes almost four hours. Your reward will be to spend the night above the ground.
Get ready to sleep in a suspended transparent capsule that can accommodate up to four people, where you can watch the stars and admire the scenery until dawn. Note: this is not recommended for those who are afraid of heights!

Every hanging module is made from aerospace alloy and high-strength polycarbonate. They have up to four beds with feather duvets, a dining room, and private bathroom. You enter through a hatch in the top of the capsule, which has six windows, four ventilation ducts, and lighting – all completely environmentally friendly. Once inside you can take your harness off and enjoy the hotel stay of a lifetime.
