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.

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.

Back to the basics of nature. Birding was great. Birding guide excellent. Accommodations good in the middle of nowhere.

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

They were very helpful and kind. We had a light breakfast and watched the sunrise. There is a lot more to see early in the day. Went to the research centre for lunch. Delicious but a bit pricey. Nice camp. Lots of helpful staff and guides. Returned to the canopy for sunset and really enjoyed the sounds of the monkeys... More

Atta Lodge is fine..food good, accommodation good, but anyone visiting has to negotiate the roads. I visited August 2014 and there were few birds and hardly anything seen from basic canopy walkways which compare badly with Costa Rica. The local guides recommended around November-December the best time of year as fruit on the trees. With a canopy walk it does... More

The canopy walk is hear tracing with amazing views but the price of 60 dollars is not great pricing for the value received

I have heard about this walkway many times and was thoroughly excited to finally have the chance to experience it. I went on a class field trip for Transport Economics Course at the University of Guyana. It was a truly remarkable and memorable experience and totally worth the very long bus ride from Georgetown. The staff at Atta Lodge were... More
