Inkaterra to be announced as one of National Geographic Society’s Unique Lodges of the World

The National Geographic Society have recently announced its newest foray in world-class travel experiences. The initial collection includes 24 properties on six continents, one of which is our very own Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel.

As part of a comprehensive vetting process, every lodge in the collection was judged on three main criteria. Firstly the design and character of the property, with a special focus on the celebration of the surrounding area. Secondly the guests overall experience and quality of service. Lastly candidates were judged on how the property demonstrates a commitment to conservation and green operations, and whether they actively support the protection of cultural heritage while providing benefits to the local community.

Inkaterra Machua Picchu Pueblo Hotel is proud to have been selected as a property that represents all of these factors, demonstrating how conservation and sustainability are at the heart of all Inkaterra properties. We hope to have many new visits to Peru in 2015.

 “There is nothing more emotionally rich, with less impact, than the Inkaterra canopy walk in the Peruvian rainforest. Stunning!” –Richard Bangs

Inkaterra PURE Life the Show

Another great achievement for Inkaterra! We were very pleased to win the Best High Emotion/Low Impact Travel Experience for our Canopy Walkway at Pure Life Experiences, The show, in Marrakech just yesterday. Our mission has  been to conserve and celebrate Peru’s nature and cultures. In partnership with The World Bank and National Geographic, our NGO Inkaterra Asociacion created a 1,330ft canopy walkway suspended above the Peruvian jungle. This canopy walkway exists in the middle of a pristine part of the jungle, allowing guests to experience a fantastic sense of place in the most high emotion / low impact way.

Canopy Walkway

To complete this memorable experience we built an adjoining canopy tree house 30 meters above ground, which provides an incredible oasis where guests can observe a range of wild animal species, most of which aren’t usually visible from the ground, and listen to the amazing jungle sounds, all while enjoying drinks served by a private butler. Be on the lookout for different birds of the jungle, such as toucans, woodpeckers, trogons, among many others, or try to identify them through their songs, from the observation decks. Learn about the interrelationship of the flora and fauna at the various levels of the forest and its integration into the jungle ecosystem. Come and experience it yourself at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica. Thank you PURE! See you next year…
