Enjoy an unforgettable night on the steep slopes high above the Sacred Valley.
The unique experience of spending a night here evades description.
Staying in a suspended capsule will give you the feeling of floating on the slope.
Those who dare to make the exciting climb to the suites will be rewarded with a fantastic view.
The Skylodge consists of three glass capsules hanging high from a mountain.
The climb before checking into the room.
You will receive equipment and instructions on all safety precautions before the start down in the valley. The equipment is included, of course.
For those who don't want to climb up: There is also a hiking trail from which the capsules can be reached.
When you want some privacy from potential prying eyes in other pods, use the linen curtains in yours.
The interior is lovingly decorated and completes the unique experience.
This isn't a place for fear of heights.
A wooden platform provides access to the capsule.
You can also enjoy dinner or breakfast on the wooden platform.
Relax on the comfortable mattress in the glass capsule after arrival.
Everything is provided for you in the room - even a toilet is available here at such a lofty height.
Enjoy the sunset from your special room.

If you sleep here all night, you will miss unforgettable views.
Up to four guests free of fear can be accommodated in the transparent sleeping box.

Transfer from/to Cusco to the unique Skylodge at the foot of the Urubamba River
Are you up for one of the most exciting adventures Peru has to offer? Then spend the night in the Skylodge and sleep in a transparent capsule hanging from a mountain. The journey there is a once in a lifetime experience in itself. Climb up the steep walls of the cliff in the Urubamba Valley and zipline back down to the Sacred Valley of the Incas the next morning.
Our travel module includes everything you need for an amazing experience. Our local colleagues will pick you up in Cusco around 2 p.m. and take you in a van or minibus to the Pachar station (around 3:30 p.m.) at the foot of the cliff where the Skylodge is located.
In the Skylodge, everything is different. There are no ordinary stairs or even an elevator leading to your room. You will climb up a rock (5-6 p.m.) to get to your accommodation. Of course you will be informed in advance about the safety conditions (3:30 p.m. - 4 p.m.). Your physical effort will be rewarded when you find yourself about 400 meters above the ground: Look forward to not just a unique view over the Urubamaba Valley, which will leave you in awe, but also a unique room. Totally transparent and looking into the abyss with the Rio Urubamba under your feet, your pod is an experience unlike any other. Even a toilet can be found in the capsule - don't worry, here you can draw the curtains for a bit of privacy. Back in the bedroom, we recommend leaving the curtains open, because who wants to escape such a stunning view? You'll have a limitless view of the starry night sky here. If at some point, despite the incredibly beautiful view, you can sleep, a comfortable and high-quality mattress, soft bedding and down pillows and quilts will ensure a warm and pleasant night's rest. There is hardly any accommodation more beautiful, romantic and, above all, extraordinary.
In the evening (at 8 p.m.) an excellent gourmet dinner awaits you, which you can enjoy in your glass suite.
Time spent traveling from Cusco to the Skylodge: approx. 67 km / approx. 1.5 hours

At 8 a.m., you will be woken up with a coffee or mate drink.

After breakfast, between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., "fly" back down to the Sacred Valley via the 2800-meter-long zipline, which comprises 6 stages, each one approx. 150 to 600 meters long.
Once at the bottom, you will say goodbye to the crew and be transported back to your hotel in Cusco by van or minibus between 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. (arriving in Cusco around 2 p.m.). Of course you can spend a longer stay at the Skylodge.
