Perched high above Peru’s Sacred Valley, three transparent capsule suites are suspended 1300 feet (400m) above the valley floor.

There’s no elevator at this hotel, to get to your room you’ll have to climb an hour and a half straight up the mountain.

After working up a sweat, you’ll enjoy a gourmet dinner in a circular, glass dining room pod. Then enjoy a good night’s sleep under the stars.

The next morning, you’ll savor the view over breakfast before zip-lining back down the mountain.

Get the thrill of sleeping in a condor’s nest with all the creature comforts.

Humpback whales courtship showdown

If we had to pick a sea creature that embodies peacefulness and elegance it would be humpback whales. But there’s one time of the year when male humpbacks prepare to step up and fight.

Imagine nine or so 50-foot-long, 88,000 lb creatures battling each other with all their might for a chance to mate.

Known as heat runs, these displays of speed, agility, and dominance are an amazing sight to see.

Tonga is one of the few places where you can be in the water watching the biggest courtship battles in the world.
