Take a walk within the hotel grounds to a small hut where our Explorer Guides will teach you about the importance of the Brazil Nut Tree in the local economy of Madre de Dios. Learn how the Brazil nut is collected using traditional tools and techniques, to finally enjoy a fresh Brazil nut.
Take a rowing canoe ride on the Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción oxbow shaped lake. Fish native style using the “catch and release” technique as you enjoy the scenery, observing hoatzins (Opisthocomus hoazin), a diversity of fly catchers, and graynecked woodrails (Aramides cajanea). Appreciate the remains of the renowned Fitzcarrald steam boat. Learn about its history and how it inspired Inkaterra to ask Werner Herzog to film the award-winning “Fitzcarraldo” (Best Director at Cannes, 1982).
A 25-minute ride by motorized canoe takes you to the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway Interpretation Center. After ascending the first tower, at 95 feet (29 mts.) above the forest floor, you will literally walk through the treetops for one-and-a-half hours along suspension bridges that link eight observation platforms. Enjoy landscapes and vistas that would be unimaginable from below, while on the look-out for giant strangler fig trees, orchids, toucans, woodpeckers, trogons and –with luck- birds of prey, monkeys or sloths. After your descent from the Canopy, experience the Anaconda Walk for about 15 minutes along the 200-meter wooden bridge over the wetland. In this lush ecosystem, you may observe the various species of amphibians, birds, mammals and abundant flora and trees of this seasonal flooded marshland.
