Guests of the Explorama Lodge in the Amazon rainforest take advantage of one of the world’s longest canopy walkways, a 115ft (35.6m) suspended bridge that navigates 14 of the area’s biggest trees over a mile long trail. The experience includes a guided tour that explains the dos and don’ts of walking on the bridge as well as an interpretive walk that introduces some of the 4,000 species of Amazonian wildlife. Excursions to the Canopy Walkway are included in ExplorNapo Lodge and ACTS Field Station Full Day expeditions.

Exploring the Wonders of a Canopy Walkway

The Myakka Canopy Walkway, completed in 2000, is North America’s first public treetop trail. Visitors meander over the oak/palm hammock, a landscape that is incredibly diverse with 13 primate species (including chimpanzees) and countless birds and insects calling it home.

At 98ft (30.4m) above the ground, this walkway is suspended between two towers and seven suspension bridges that span over 1/4 mile through the upper level of the Peruvian jungle. Besides being a thrill, the canopy walkway is also an outdoor laboratory for research and education, as it provides a rare opportunity to see the forest from its highest point and discover many of its inhabitants up close.
