With 2017 stated as the “International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development” by the United Nations, Peruvian eco tourism pioneer, Inkaterra, will open their Amazonian “Inkaterra Guides Field Station” to guests for the first time in June this year.
Originally designed as a research location for ITA and a location to train Inkaterra’s Explorer Guides, the Field Station will now open its doors to eco-conscious travellers, families, researchers, volunteers and students from around the world. Four cabañas will be available, equipped with private terrace, mosquito nets and private bathroom. Two large “Pavillions” will offer shared-living, housing eight shared rooms, each with private bathroom, sleeping up to four guests per room.
The Field Station “Work House” will house an Eco Centre, designed to educate guests on the various projects and excursions taking place, as well as a laboratory used for the examination of soil and the study of flora and fauna. Guests will be able to participate in ten wildlife-focused outings, ranging from the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, suspended high above the forest floor, to boat trips and a visit to the Gamitana Model Farm, where ITA works with local communities.
The Inkaterra Field Station will be open to guests from June 2017 and rates start from $320 for a four-night/five-day itinerary.
