There’s always a reason to go on a hike. Be it the breathtaking scenery, a breath of fresh air, or a walk down memory lane. And in Peru, the Natura Vive Skylodge is rewarding intrepid hikers with accommodation in one of the three transparent capsules that are 24 feet in length, eight feet in height and width, complete with four beds, a dining area, and a private bathroom that is separated from the bedroom with an insulated wall – only if you’re brave enough to climb 400 feet or hike a daunting trail using ziplines though.
Handcrafted with aerospace aluminium and weather-resistant polycarbonate, the suites, hanging off a cliff, come with six windows and four ventilation ducts that ensure comfort in the internal area, plus lighting system powered by solar panels. If you wish, you may draw the curtains on the dome for privacy from the curious gaze of your ‘neighbours’ – the passing condors. The semi-open toilet, incidentally, offers a view of the Peruvian landscape. And the fact that the lodge is located in the Sacred Valley of Cuzco means the view of the magnificent mystic valley is also complimentary. With the provision of fine-quality mattresses, cotton sheets, down pillows and quilts, you can rest assured that being in the wild doesn’t have to mean compromising on comfort.
So here’s this amazing offer by Natura Vive, as if there aren’t enough reasons to entice you to book your flight to Peru.
