How to Get to the Skylodge in Peru

Going on an adventure to the Skylodge Adventure Suites is a unique experience in and of itself because the trip there is filled with wonder and excitement.

Adventuresome explorers under you have two different access options to the Skylodge, each of which offers a different level of adventure. In the following, we’ll take a look at each of them.


Getting to the Skylodge via Ferrata

One option is via ferrata, which involves climbing between the mountains through a suspension bridge, and up to a hanging shelter at a height of about 1.312 ft. (400 m). The ascent and descent of the route takes about 3 – 4 hours and depends on the pace of the group members.

This is the better option for travelers without much experience in climbing and it offers total security.


Getting to the Skylodge via Zipline

The other and more extreme option is using a zipline. There are seven different sections of 492 – 2296 ft. (150 – 700 m) each until you reach the Skylodge. Sounds like a true adventure, doesn’t it?

You can combine our highly rated Sacred Valley day tour, where you’ll visit the Valley’s most popular sites, such as Moray, Maras and Ollantaytambo, with this unique place.


Safety Measurements and Equipment Used to Get to the Skylodge

On the way to the Skylodge, safety is the highest priority. Because the pods are placed to the side of a cliff hundreds of feet (100 m) above the ground. But don’t worry as the Skylodge Adventure Suites has a perfect safety record.
