With modern technology playing a major role in all elements of our daily lives, it is often hard to switch off and take time-out to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. Those looking to “unplug” and escape the buzz of the modern world, why not ditch the computer screen, switch off the iPad and become an intrepid explorer in Peru.
Inkaterra’s Quintessential Peru Experience is the ideal opportunity to shift your focus away from your technology and onto a 14-day adventure you will never forget. With your phone safely stowed away, take the time to re-energise and embrace the colourful culture, cuisine and sites Peru has to offer.
Submerge yourself in the stunning and tranquil atmosphere of the Amazon Rainforest – paddle your way down the Madre De Dios River, explore the magical forest trails and watch as the Lake Sandoval’s resident giant otters and howler monkeys play. Not only will you not have time for technology, you won’t want the distraction. Savour the memories of breath taking sunsets over the forest canopy after all, it’s memories not phones that last a lifetime.
Explore the Sacred Valley of the Incas; with its ruins, markets and villages – you can truly appreciate what this historic site has to offer.
Missing your phone yet? This should be the last thing on your mind as you watch the sun come up, casting a golden glow over the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu or you can take in the awe-inspiring site of the Colca Canyon. Experience these ancient and mystical wonders the way the Incas did thousands of years before you.
There are only so many pictures you can view on a mobile device – so why not give it up for a 2 week rejuvenating experience and experience them first hand with a life changing ‘Digital Detox’ at either Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica and Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel.

When was the last time you went without checking your emails or phone? We live in a world where we use our mobile devices on average every ten minutes, so when we do have a break, we find it difficult to completely switch off. In today’s technologically advanced world, even on holiday mobile phones are often close at hand, be it for making calls, reading work emails, or tweeting about the weather.
Increasingly, more of us are craving a complete switch off from the digital sphere, in an environment of inspiring natural beauty. And where better to get your ‘Digital Detox’ than within the realm of the Inca Gods at Machu Picchu, or to the beat of the Peruvian Amazon Jungle? Like an entire continent in a country, Peru astounds visitors with the diversity of its landscapes. From jaw-dropping terrain to glaciated Andean peaks, the only device that you will need on a trip to Peru will be your camera.
A ‘Digital-Detox’ at Inkaterra will bring you right back to nature. With no signal available, you can relax and de-stress whilst staying at the Reserva Amazonica Lodge, waking to a symphony of tropical birdsong; ending your days by lantern light and falling asleep to the sounds of the Amazon rainforest. Explore the rainforest garden and learn to identify native plants, tress and orchids, while spotting rare species of birds.
Inkaterra’s Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is another serene retreat to escape from fast-paced lives. The timeless spirit of Machu Picchu awaits, along with local excursions to tea plantations, or discovering the largest orchid collection that is open to the public. The ancient land of the Incas make you forget about your busy life as you learn about the incredible history and tales of the Inca Tribe. Days at the Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel end with an Andean eucalyptus sauna, followed by a star-lit plunge pool dip. A perfect end to a digital-free day.
