Sustainable Tourism

We Care for the Environment

As part of Inca Rail's ethos of environmental respect, we aim to practice and promote responsible tourism at every available opportunity.
This involves taking all actions conducive to minimising the environmental impact of our operations.

Good Environmental Practices

  • As a waste avoidance measure, our on-board dining service does not use any boxed packaging.
  • We use 100% natural soaps and air-fresheners.
  • Our trains utilise fuel with additives especially designed to minimise CO2 emissions.
  • We do not offer carbonated drinks in plastic bottles, a measure that has allowed us to cut-out the consumption of some 200,000 bottles per year.
  • We are founder members, alongside a further seven leading Peruvian companies from the tourism sector, of Turismo Cuida: a non-profit organisation that seeks to develop projects that promote social wellbeing in a number of locations throughout Peru.
  • We are sponsors of the Fundación Niños del Arco Iris, a nonprofit organization whose goal is to generate human capital through health and education. Through our support we cover the expenses incurred in the education of young people who are learning the career of Hotel Reception.
