Owner description: 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.

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

A great place to stay. Managers were very friendly and accommodating. Leon, our guide, was fantastic and had an amazing knowledge of the birds and other animals we encounted.

Guided by Leon we went to watch, listen and feel the pulse of the jungle at it's best! The sight from the top of the walkway is breathtaking and a night at the lodge is well... Unforgettable! The employees are simply fantastic and the Haulier Monkeys a memorable moment, especially at 3 am! Thanks to the whole team of Wilderness... More

As part of my stay at Atta Lodge, I had a very rewarding experience on the Iwokrama Canopy Walkway. This may not be as extensive as those located in Costa Rica but the sensations and sights are very similar. It comprises of four section, the best is the second viewpoint.

Excellent to see the birds high up early in the morning from a decent height especially watching the Mccaws flying over. Most bird sightings are at distance but usually they also provide high powered lenses for viewing if you do not have your own
