Inkaterra has introduced three new conservation-focused travel itineraries for guests staying in the Inkaterra Guides Field Station, which was recently opened to the public in the Madre de Dios region of Peru. Located near the Tambopata National Reserve, the property offers travelers the opportunity to explore the reserve's tropical rainforest and participate in various conservation projects overseen by Inkaterra's NGO, the Inkaterra Asociación (ITA), a self-funded, nonprofit institution dedicated to restoring Peru's ecosystems and cultural resources.
The itineraries include two-, three- and four-night packages, each offering guided travel through the Inkaterra Ecological Reserve's rainforest trails, which are home to 540 bird species, more than 100 mammal species, oh, and 362 ant species.
Based on the itinerary, other activities include: excursions to the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, a collection of eight platforms and seven suspended bridges 100 feet above the jungle floor; canoe rides; nighttime tours of the rainforest; visits to the Inkaterra Asociación's bio-orchard; learning about bird monitoring, rainforest restoration and conservation, and more.
The Field Station is equipped with four cabañas with two twin rooms, a terrace, mosquito nets and private bathrooms, in addition to two large pavilions, each with four shared rooms, sleeping up to four guests per room, each room with a private bathroom.
Rates include round-trip transportation from the airport, full board, programmed excursions in either Spanish or English, and access to the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway. Rates do not include alcohol, additional expenses, a 10 percent service charge and the entrance fees to Lake Sandoval.
