All excursions are guided by one of our trained professional Explorer Guides in Spanish, English or French (other languages available upon request, and may be subject to additional charge). Their knowledge and interpretive skills combine to provide understanding, insight and an enhanced experience of the surrounding environment.
INKATERRA is a Peruvian organization with more than 38 years of experience in sustainable tourism initiatives. Its focus is on preserving and rescuing Peru’s geography, nature, customs and culture while sharing them with the world. Join us in the effort and help us to make a difference!
At INKATERRA, we strongly believe that we all need to change our behaviors as individuals, as countries and as a global community. We all contribute to global warming; thus, everyone needs to be part of the solution. Since 1975, based on a principle of respect for the ecosystem, INKATERRA has been developing conservation programs to preserve the natural characteristics of the Amazon Rainforest (helping to prevent global warming). These programs directly protect 12,000 hectares of private property, fixing 7,000 ton/CO2/ha/year. Furthermore, INKATERRA indirectly fixes more than 20,000 ton/CO2/ha/year through its support for a variety of external conservation programs.
Every guest at Inkaterra has a 100% Carbon Neutral hotel stay. In addition, Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel provides its guests with the opportunity to offset their air travel related greenhouse gas emissions through a unique custom carbon calculator developed by Sustainable Travel International (STI). “Inkaterra is setting a precedent,” explains STI Vice President and Co-founder Peter D. Krahenbuhl. “As one of the leading and most influential tourism companies in Peru, they’re taking the lead in sustainability and the fight against global warming. In addition, they’re actively educating their customers to do so as well.”
