While the breakfast buffets, chlorine pools and tourist tan lines of all-inclusive resorts hugging the equator might be the ideal couple’s getaway for some—there are those who are drawn to vacations that are a little less conventional. Because while it is true that there is a comfort to be found in flower print shirts and ocean-view lawn-chairs, there is also a feeling of transcendence that is found in pushing past your comfort zone with your partner by your side. That is why many adrenaline-seeking adventurers are heading to the heart of Peru’s Sacred Valley, where they will ascend a jagged cliff-face, to wine, dine and sleep inside a translucent pod that hangs 400 feet above the ancient Incan Empire.
The glass pods of Natura Vive Skylodge are perched on a 400 ft. cliff and have a 300-degree view of the vast ancient Incan Empire.
Adventurers climb a gargantuan mountain that cradles Peru’s Sacred Valley on a course that’s been specifically designed so that even beginner climbers can safely make the intense vertical sections.
