Glamping or luxury camping is one of the newer, luxury experiences when travelling in the Cusco region of Peru. You can experience the connection with nature around you yet still have the level of comfort of a 5 star hotel. After a hard day of exploring the Sacred Valley of the Incas, maybe the last thing you want to be worried about is pitching your tent, cooking a meal, inflating a mattress, and NOT having a shower! If you want to experience the Sacred Valley of the Incas with a modicum of comfort, then glamping is a totally different way to see the valley. If this sounds like your “thing” then read on! 

Skylodge pods in the Sacred Valley

Skylodge 

By definition, this is not really glamping but I will include it anyway! These transparent pods allow you to be surrounded by nature whilst hanging off a cliff face, yes! a cliff face! This adventure starts with a sheer face rock climb, harnesses and climbing gear included from the base of the mountain, up to your capsule. If rock climbing is not your thing, then there is a slightly longer alternate hike up to the pods. These luxury capsules have a 300° vantage point over the whole of Sacred Valley and the views are spectacular, to say the least! All pods come equipped with a private bathroom, curtains for those private moments, a king-size bed and gourmet meals on request. Breakfast is included the following morning before you zip line back down the mountain! 

 

Eco spirit 

This incredible glamping option is located at the bottom of the stunning Patacancha valley and surrounded by the Pumamarca mountains. These eco-friendly, luxury tents are heated (yes!) with king-size beds, private bathroom, comfortable facilities WIFI and ecological toiletries. The sustainability policy of Eco spirit means that local people are trained and employed for the service requirements, who prepare locally grown, organic products for the meals. You can arrange an afternoon wine and cheese, in nature or a short hike as some of the main activities available in the area as part of this comfort camping option.

The aim is to protect the environment and local communities by offering employment and training, in 3 different locations within the Sacred Valley of the Incas. the aim is for social and cultural interaction for visitors and the local community, to experience local culture and traditions of the area.
