The journey to get to Skylodge is part of the fun. Visitors must take a trek up the side of a mountain to reach their destination! The trail is designed to be challenging yet accessible to all skill levels; it involves hiking, ziplining, and climbing ladders attached to the rock face. While it may sound daunting, many travelers have found that completing this journey is both rewarding and invigorating. It’s also worth noting that guides are available if desired.

Once you reach your destination, you’ll find yourself in front of hanging capsules made out of aerospace aluminum and polycarbonate — each one equipped with four beds, private bathrooms with hot showers (a welcome respite after your hike), and tables for dining al fresco as you take in the breathtaking views around you. The pods even have electricity so that you can charge your devices while away from civilization.

Aside from unique lodging, Skylodge also offers activities that range from yoga to thrilling zip line adventures over the valley beneath. And thanks to its elevated location above the clouds, visitors will have ample opportunity to appreciate beautiful sunrises and sunsets from their hanging abodes. During the day there are plenty of ways to keep busy, like hiking through nearby trails or exploring ancient ruins in nearby towns — all providing amazing opportunities for learning about Peruvian culture and history while soaking up the area’s natural beauty.
