"Skylodge" Houses Adventurous Travelers in Glass Pod Clinging to a 400-Foot Cliff

Those who fancy themselves adventurous travelers can now experience an adrenaline-pumping night in the Natura Vive Skylodge in Peru's Sacred Valley. This isn't a typical vacation, and it definitely isn't for those with a fear of heights. Here, guests sleep in a transparent glass pod that clings to the side of one of the valley's highest peaks. But before they even get to their accommodations, travelers must climb a 400-foot cliff face.

The Natura Vive Skylodge consists of three capsule suites that can house a total of eight people. Each pod is constructed from aerospace aluminum and weather-resistant polycarbonate, and it's surprisingly spacious. The 24-foot long and 8-foot wide space has room for high-quality bedding, a dining area, and a separate bathroom with an eco-toilet and sink. Suites also include curtains for privacy from other guests and curious wildlife.

From beginning to end, the Natura Vive Skylodge is an adventure. Guests trek to it using a Via ferrata (“iron road”) or hike a trail through ziplines. Neither of these routes require any climbing experience, as the person is tied to a steel cable and traverses ladders and bridges. Once the journey is over, the vacation package includes breakfast and gourmet dinner with wine, which seems like a fitting reward for their bravery.
