They are edgy, raw, and quite frankly, some of these places make you measure your guts. Here are some of the most extreme accommodations around the globe:
Floating Huts, Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela. For some, lightning storms are not something to mess around with but try sleeping in the floating huts in Lake Maracaibo and your nightly view consists of some of the most intense lightning storms you'll ever see in your life. According to The Independent, the region is famous for these lightning storms, so if you want to take a risk of getting zapped yourself, then be our guest.
Kokopelli's Cave, Farmington, New Mexico. This is not the best place for claustrophobics to sleep in. According to Gayot, Kokopelli's cave is originally a geological research office turned into a one-bedroom B&B. Basically, the whole place is a cave, but unlike the dwellings of the prehistoric cavemen, this one has a rock-walled bathroom with waterfall shower, comfy Southwest furnishings, and a full kitchen with a patio barbecue.
Skylodge Adventure Suites, Peru. Imagine turning on a different side of your bed and seeing a deep, wide ravine enough to crush your bones when you fall? In the Skylodge Adventure Suites, guests here must be sure they do not have the faintest of hearts and that fear of heights is non-existent. The pods hang on the side of a mountain in the Sacred Valley of Peru, and they are transparent to maximize the view. Only true adventure seekers brave this place.
Whitepod, Les Giettes, Switzerland. Situated in the Swiss Alps, Whitepod promises adventure lodging tinged with comfort and luxury. Guests stay in these 15 pods or igloos that are all eco-friendly and boast great views of the valley below it. The whole chalet has a massage area, Swedish sauna, and a communal space where guests can lounge around and socialize.
