The Iwokrama Canopy Walkway is a series of suspension bridges and decks of up to 30 metres in height and 154 metres in length, located in the Iwokrama Forest. It gives visitors a new view of the mid and upper canopy of the forest and allows wildlife to be relatively free from human intrusion.At the base of the canopy walkway is Atta Rainforest Lodge, resting amidst towering trees and grassy lawns. The lodge provides comfortable accommodation with 10 private rooms, three home-cooked meals per day, and ample opportunities to explore the surrounding rainforest by foot, canoe, or 4X4.

This is a typical canopy walk, though more remote than many others we've been to. You will see plenty of birdlife and monkeys and, if you are lucky, something unusual like a snake or mammal. Be sure you come at sunrise or sunset, though.

Good views of the rainforest and canopy walkway is about 50 feet above the ground so not for those suffering from vertigo!

We went to the canopy walkway a little to early in afternoon. A that time very quiet - a few birds. A lot of mosquitos, very hot sun and a few bullet ants. We decided to walk a nature trail after one hour at canopy. The best time at canopy shoul possibly be at sunrise or sunset.

After a couple of days trekking along paths in the rainforest it is great to be on the bird's or monkey's eye level. You get a different perspective on the wildlife living in the rainforest

The canopy walkway is four interconnected bridges. You get a birds-eye view of the animals, birds and sunset.

On my visit, wildlife sightings were exclusively birds, but a great variety (probably a couple dozen species), including scarlet macaws. A really fun way to get a different perspective on the forest. Plus really beautiful views and fun, wobbly walks between platforms (while still feeling totally safe). I stayed at the adjacent Atta Lodge - worth it to be able... More

It was probably too late by the time we go to the walkway at 9:30 a.m. to see many birds. We kept stopping along the road on the way to the canopy because we had so many great sightings. The walkway is nevertheless interesting and fun. Afterwards we took a nearby walk and saw the beautiful male cock-of-the-rock bird. Next... More
