What in the intergalactic hell is an earthship? An earthship is a passive solar house made from sustainable materials, meaning the windows, walls, and floors of the structure are made to collect heat in the winter and reject it in the summer. There are no electronics involved, only sustainable materials. We, my earthling friends, are truly living in a sci-fi future. Seriously though, one look at these houses and you feel like you are in a “Star Wars” movie or on a distant planet.

You can visit or overnight in Taos, New Mexico’s earthships because Taos is fulla old, lovely hippies who are still connecting to the future. Named one of Lonely Planet’s top 10 eco-stays on the planet, Earthship Biotecture is an adventurous, thoughtful overnight that will blend your vacay with braining around on a more sustainable future. We’re talking fully furnished homes, not small rooms. It ain’t cheap. Each earthship goes for $185 (or more) a night, depending on your choice, but you can split the home with multiple people and reduce costs.
