Lima to the Sacred Valley
This morning you will catch a flight to Cusco, before continuing to the Sacred Valley where you will have an opportunity to participate in some unique Peruvian experiences.
Begin with lunch at Wayra, one of the best restaurants in the Sacred Valley. From the moment you enter the beautiful grounds, you will be surrounded by aromas of freshly baked bread from the traditional wood ovens, as well as tasty empanadas served with lemon juice and hot pepper sauces. Peruvians love their potatoes and you will partake in an assortment of them, all grown in remote Andean communities. You will be amazed with the many varieties, their unusual tastes and the diverse ways in which they can be used.
What makes this lunch even more special is the spectacular equestrian exhibition that will be performed as you dine. This is a special opportunity learn about an important part of the Criolla cultural heritage and celebrate a unique breed of Peruvian horses developed from a genetic selection made more than 400 years ago. These elegant horses will amaze you with their graceful gait as they perform to the rhythm of live marinera music. This is a legacy that the locals cherish and proudly share with their visitors.
When this meaningful performance is complete, you will head out to your next uniquely Peruvian adventure: an overnight at the Skylodge Adventure Suites. This is a stay you will boast about to your friends at home! Tonight’s accommodation will have you sleeping in a completely transparent “hanging bedroom” – 1,312 feet above the ground!
Each module has four beds, a dining area and private bathroom, and measures 24 ft. in length and 8 ft. in height and width. The dome also has curtains for privacy from the curious gaze of passing condors, who are your only sky neighbors. There are two ways to get to the Skylodge: by way of a hanging bridge, or, for more intrepid travelers, a series of ziplines will deliver you to your room. Choose your preference!
Your security is paramount at the Skylodge, and your stay will start with a safety briefing, where you will be fitted with the appropriate equipment. Ascend to your suite to enjoy a welcome drink before settling in to your room. Dinner will be served at 8:00pm and then the night is yours to enjoy the stars and views from your perch along the cliff.
