Overview
More
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.

You climb two hundred steps to get to the start and the walkways are quite wobbly, but easily accessed. There are two of them that lead to a platform thirty metres above the ground and right up with the canopy. Excellent view of the canopy...More

This is a well constructed high canopy walkway with with 3 viewing platforms that get you as near to the canopy and its birds as one could reasonably expect. On a good day the birding would be fabulous.

Definitely worth the short walk. We were bird watching and sat for hours. It would be good if they could extend it

We visited in Dec.2016, it was a wonderful canopy walk over 100 ft. high. It was a bit rainy, we heard the Howler monkeys and many different species of plats were seen. The canopy walk was awesome and we enjoyed it very much.

Half has gone as a tree fell on it. Safe enough but need a good flock of birds passing through to make it interesting

Nice but very short. However, an excellent guide made up for any shortcomings. Also the attached Atta lodge is very nice. Could use some benches on the main viewing platform
