  • hm_1210-1024x682

From traversing tree-tops in the Amazon to delving deep into a Cloud Forest, Inkaterra provides an authentic setting to connect families with nature, adventure and a vibrant culture. With multi-generational holidays being a key travel trend for 2017, we offer more than a family vacation, we offer our junior guests the chance to lead their very own fairytale adventure, parents in tow.

Shrouded in the mystery of the Andean Cloud Forest, lies Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, one of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World. Much like Frances Hodgson Burnett’s protagonist, Mary Lennox, our young explorers can discover a Secret Garden like no other. Fully equipped with the expedition essentials, travelling tots can delve into the Cloud Forest and discover 214 different types of bird species, 111 butterfly species and 372 native orchid species, and much more, that Inkaterra lovingly conserves. Walk the hotel’s pathways and enjoy the lullaby of bird song as it echoes through the Cloud Forest. Encouraged to capture nature’s performance on film, guests’ camera flashes provide spotlights for the birds as they perch amongst the scenery.

Adventures at Inkaterra don’t stop there. Our Madre de Dios river properties are amidst exotic wildlife lurking in Amazon Rainforest, waiting to be discovered. But of course, no adventure can be hatched without a plan. Our young Indiana Jones’ have a knowledgable sidekick, a member of our trusting Explorer Guides, accompanying them on their travels.

Spanning air, land and river, several of our creature chums can be spotted amidst the vegetation that surrounds Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica and Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion. Climbing atop the Canopy Walkway, explorers can take in the magnificent sights of the Amazon Rainforest at 30m high. For those wanting to fully embrace jungle life at an elevated level, the Canopy Treehouse offers kids (who must be accompanied by an adult) a dream like ‘den’ that  hovers above the forest floor.

Come Twilight, when  all are asleep the Amazon Rainforest comes to life. Take to the water by boat and witness the enchanting transformation of The Madre de Dios river, as animals and birds of the daytime are replaced by their nocturnal counter parts. After all that exploring our little adventurers can retreat to their cabaña for some well earned rest beneath the stars.
