Arriving in the heart of a 42,000-acre private ecological reserve situated deep in the Amazon jungle, you’ll check in to the acclaimed Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica Lodge, hailed by National Geographic Traveler as one of the best eco-lodges in the world.

During your 3-night stay here, you’ll enjoy a choice of included excursions and activities – led by expert naturalists and designed to immerse you in the beauty of the Amazon as you learn about its remarkable flora and fauna. For your first afternoon, a guided nature walk would be a terrific introduction to the unique rainforest environment.  Meals B+L+D

Our lodge offers more than a dozen naturalist-guided excursions designed for different interests and abilities. Over the next two days, you can join the ones that best fit your style. From forest trails to ox-bow lakes, there are many ways to observe and learn about the Amazon’s eco-systems and its colorful birds and wildlife. Your adventures can take you over land and water – or even high into the forest canopy. Twilight tours are an exciting way to encounter nocturnal species.
 
Here is just a sampling of the excursions that are available:
 
Rainforest Garden: Close to our Lodge is a native garden that was started by local inhabitants more than 10 years ago. Encompassing native plants and trees, this guided discovery walk offers a chance to learn about the indigenous flora – including delicate orchids and medicinal plants that have long been used by indigenous rainforest communities.
 
Twilight River Expedition: Setting out in the late afternoon with an expert naturalist, this guided boat ride offers a chance to experience the jungle as it transitions from a diurnal to a nocturnal environment. Learn about the habits of these diverse jungle denizens as you search for nightjars, owls, capybaras and caimans. As darkness falls, this excursion also offers a chance to observe the constellations of the Southern Sky.
 
Amazon Wetlands: This half-day excursion explores the diversity of the Amazon Basin, from drier forests to rainforest swamps. Covering both jungle trails and a well-maintained system of elevated boardwalks, you’ll experience these environmental transitions as you search for and learn about the various species of mammals, birds, amphibians, and reptiles that inhabit the various eco-zones.

Canopy + Wetlands: A short ride in our motorized canoe brings you to the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway Interpretation Center. Ascend 95 feet above the shadowy forest floor to navigate with your expert naturalist along a network of suspension bridges that connect 8 observation platforms. Walking through the lush forest canopy offers incredible views and a chance to observe tree-top denizens including toucans, woodpeckers, colorful trogons, sloths and monkeys. Back on the ground, explore a nearby wetland ecosystem along an elevated boardwalk that offers a chance to observe various species of amphibians, birds and mammals.

Transfer to our 5-star hotel where A+R guests enjoy guestrooms that are specially oxygenated for their comfort at the city’s high altitude.

Day

Descend into the Sacred Valley to visit Ollantaytambo, an ancient community that provides a vivid living illustration of Inca urban planning. Laid out in a simple grid with cobblestone streets, perfectly constructed stone walls and canals, many of the buildings and residence you’ll see today date back more than 600 years.
 
Then board the train for the scenic journey through the timeless landscapes of the Sacred Valley – a region of quiet villages and terraced fields that have been cultivated for centuries On arrival in the charming town of Aguas Calientes, you’ll have lunch before ascending to Machu Picchu c.  Delight in a guided tour of this mighty citadel as Breytzi sheds light on the Inca and their once-mighty Empire.

Arise early for your second guided tour of the Lost City before the day-visitors from Cuzco and the Sacred Valley have yet to arrive in town. With fewer people and the softer light of morning just breaking over the surrounding mountain peaks, this early-morning visit to Machu Picchu promises to be one of the most memorable travel experiences you will ever have. After lunch at the exclusive Sanctuary Lodge, situated atop the mountain next to Machu Picchu, you can return to the site to explore and hike at your own pace. You’ll even have time to make the ascent to Inti Punku, the legendary Gate of the Sun, where you’ll have breathtaking views of the Lost City below you. Then return down the mountain for dinner and another night at our wonderful resort nestled in a cloud forest below the Machu Picchu. Meals B+L+D

Journey by rail into the Sacred Valley to visit the rustic Andean town of Chincheros. In the shadow of the mighty peaks of the Vilcabamba Range, this highland town is renowned for the skill of its weavers. Spend some time here as Breytzi offers insight into the enduring traditions of its residents and observe the ancient weaving techniques still used here to create textiles of extraordinary design and quality. Then continue to Cuzco and check in again to the JW Marriott Hotel where oxygenated rooms have been reserved for our guests.  Meals B+L

Begin your sightseeing in the hills outside of town where you’ll discover Sacsayhuaman. Built in the 1400’s by the Inca Emperor Pachacútec, the massive limestone blocks of this venerated complex were cut with such precision that they fit together without mortar like the interlocking pieces of a jigsaw puzzle! With some individual stones towering more than 10 feet tall and weighing several hundred tons, Sacsayhuaman is a monumental achievement of architecture and masonry.
 
Then by special arrangement, a local Shaman will perform a purification ritual for our group near the rarely-visited Temple of the Moon. Back in the city, you’ll continue your sightseeing with the Colonial landmarks that surround the Plaza de Armas – including the Cathedral that was completed in 1654 nearly 100 years after construction began. Then spend some time in the San Pedro Market as Breytzi offers illuminating insight into old Andean traditions that still endure here in Cuzco.
