Hike in the Iwokrama Rainforest

Iwokrama Walkway

Get a bird's-eye view of the jungle from the Iwokrama Canopy Walkway and climb Turtle Mountain to look out across the surrounding wilderness.

One of only four rainforests in the world to be considered pristine, the untouched wilderness of Iwokrama is a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers. It is also home to a 30m-high canopy walkway offering an unparalleled vantage point over Guyana's lush forested interior. Walking along suspended bridges in between platforms of varying heights, you can spot wildlife that would be invisible from the forest floor.

For another impressive perspective, we'll take you on a guided nature hike to the top of Turtle Mountain, a 2 hour ascent that affords breathtaking views over the forest canopy.
