Tea time and evening nature shows are offered each day, and the hotel has a spa and yoga facility. The spacious rooms all have a fireplace and thick, handmade alpaca wool blankets cover each bed making it a perfect place for simple relaxing before and after your Machu Picchu excursion.
Inkaterra is a leader in ecotourism and sustainable development in Peru. They have a commitment to research, and sharing knowledge about biodiversity and culture with the world through authentic travel experiences. Because of this, they have been granted the First International Certificate in Sustainable Tourism given by Control Union Green Choice and the Sustainable Tourism Standard Conservation Award. They are also Rainforest Alliance verified and there is no single-use plastic at the property.
Sustainable tourism pioneers
Dreamed up by an environmentalist who has sat on the board of directors of Conservation International, Inkaterra has been a pioneer in sustainable tourism since the mid-1970s. The lodge works with the Inkaterra Association to support scientific research and conservation efforts – from discovering new species to protecting vast swathes of the Amazon rainforest. It also brings its eco-initiatives to guests through enriching, naturalist-led experiences on the property and beyond. One initiative of Inkaterra, in partnership with AJE Group and the Municipality of Machu Picchu Pueblo, has been the creation of a compacting machine, housed in Machu Picchu Pueblo to recycle the abundance of plastic waste left by tourists visiting the ancient citadel, among other sustainable initiatives. This incredible asset has been integral in addressing the local waste management crisis.
