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.

A large sector has been destroyed during a storm. We saw absolutely nothing for our 2,5 afternoon till dusk vigilance

The Canopy Walkway is a must see attraction within the Iwokrama Rainforest of Guyana! Standing on the platform 100 feet off the ground is an amazing experience & it is a great view for bird watching too!
