Following on from our post last week on the opening of the Inkaterrra Guide Field Station in June, we thought we would tell you all a bit more about the exciting array of excursions that will be on offer.
There will be a total of ten wildlife-focused outings available, these range from quarter and half day trips, to full five day itineraries. The idea is for all guests to the Field Station to feel fully immersed in the day to day life of the Amazon Rainforest.
There will be daily trips to the Gamitana Model Farm, where our NGO, ITA, works with local communities, and the Bio-Orchard will educate guests on the sustainable techniques used in the agriculture, farming and horticulture of the region.
Our esteemed Inkaterra Canopy Walkway (winner of the PURE’s 2017 “High Emotion/ Low Impact” award) takes guests along a series of eight platforms and seven hanging bridges, 1,129ft (344m) above the jungle floor, offering a birds eye view of the wildlife diversity in the rainforest canopy.
Furthermore, keen birdwatchers can take a boat trip to River Island, a large sandbank on the shores of the Madre de Dios River, to explore the floodplains that are home to many sought after bird species, including the Amazonian Umbrellabird (Cephalopterus ornatus).
We look forward to welcoming you at the Field Station in June this year!
