My most epic overnight stay! The adrenalin pumping climb is surpassed only by the breathtaking beauty of the Skylodge Suite. The suite itself is situated 1,200 feet above the sacred valley floor and allows an unobstructed view in all directions. The bedding beats any five-star hotel. The service: a four-course gourmet meal served complete with wine, coffee, tea and homemade pie. The night sky around the capsule was pierced only by the stars above and the lights of the sacred valley below.
Touchable stars, comets so close they seemed like an illusion, deafening quite, the mountain breathing a slight wind, the moon lighting the white sheets—it was truly magic.
Plain and simple—magic has been created by Natura Vive in Cusco, Peru!
We woke with the sun to a spectacular view, hot coffee, tea, fresh fruit and a breakfast fit for royalty—enough to prepare us for the decent which was as epic as our accommodations. Four blood pumping, jaw dropping zip lines and a rappel landed us on the valley floor again. Our departure from the Skylodge was bittersweet and accompanied by a promise to return and spend more time there.
The support team was amazing and the quality of their work surpassed that of every adventure I have ever commissioned. They were a carefully orchestrated team with service that made you forget you were 1,200 feet above the rest of civilization.
But, most important to me was the safety aspect. An adventure can only be “epic” when every detail of safety and precaution is addressed. The climb, the Skylodge Suite, the zip line—with the entire adventure, safety and professionalism was paramount. I was free from concern which opened the door to simply experience the Andes. They gave me a journey of a lifetime. A dream became real. Completely epic…Thank you Ario, Alex, Americo and Natura Vive!
