The property offers a varied selection of à-la-carte excursions, including a visit to the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, a bridge system at 30 meters above the ground, allowing adventurers to enjoy a privileged view of the Amazon. In 2013, Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica was selected by National Geographic Traveler magazine among the world’s 25 best eco-lodges. 

Guests at this eco-lodge in the remote regions of the Peruvian Amazon Basin can bed down among the birdlife in a surprisingly comfortable canopy treehouse, follow an “anaconda trail” across flooded swamplands, and get a monkey’s-eye view of the forest from a walkway suspended through the treetops. And the credentials are impeccable, too: for 20 years the pousada has been funding research into the area’s ecosystem, and has discovered several new species of tropical amphibian.

Established in 1975, Inkaterra has been at the forefront of ecotourism and sustainable development in Peru. Inkaterra has spent the past four decades dedicated to authentic travel experiences, aiming to preserve biodiversity and local cultures. Its sustainability efforts have gained them membership with diverse alliances, such as Relais & Châteaux, Virtuoso and National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World.

Inkaterra properties are established in the heart of the Machu Picchu cloud forest, deep in the Amazonian rainforest, nestled in the cobblestoned streets of Cusco and surrounded by the rolling hills of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Luxury standards are achieved in all hotels, defined for their eco-friendly design inspired by traditional architecture and built with native materials, in harmony with the environment.

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
Inkaterra performs scientific research since 1978, defining natural areas where its luxury hotels are established: the Amazon rainforest in Madre de Dios (Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica, Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción, and Field Station Tambopata by Inkaterra Asociación-ITA), the Machu Picchu cloud forest (Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel and El MaPi by Inkaterra), the Sacred Valley of the Incas (Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba), the city of Cusco (Inkaterra La Casona) and the Cabo Blanco coastline (in development).
Studies on flora and fauna set a benchmark to compare the brand’s future impact. A total of 814 bird species, 365 ant species, 313 butterfly species, and over 100 mammal species have been inventoried within hotel grounds and surroundings. 28 species new to science have been described: 19 orchids, 5 amphibians, 1 butterfly, 2 bromeliads and 1 tropical vine.
