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.

Learning how to spot monkeys in the canopy

We didn't see a lot of wildlife, but did learn how to spot monkeys in the canopy and saw them several times during our three day stay.

Much smaller than expected - approached by a flight of steps cut into the hillside. You are about 90 feet up but not high enough to be in the upper canopy. Has 4 small viewing platforms. We saw no wildlife at all during our visits here.

From the trek up 200 step to reach the first platform to crossing the longest path as the metal and ropes sway with the wind, it was truly amazing to walk among the tree tops in the rain forest. The view down from the platforms was quite scary but thrilling.

The steps to get there are like climbing a 15-storey building. There are 3 platforms, with good views. There were 4 platforms, but one tree fell in a storm. Good, but variable, bird viewing. Hey, it's the only canopy walkway in Guyana, so it's make the best of it, as this is your sole choice for canopy bird viewing.

Loved sitting up in the canopywalk way - our guide very kindly carried a chair for me as my back was playing up - super to be up at the height. So hope they manage to repair - renew the rest of the walkway that has been brought down

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.

I stayed up here for hours looking at the different bird life. We also saw a lot of primates. You can see quite far so bring your scope but some amazing birds flew right into the canopy support trees.

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.
