The Canopy Walkway is an experience unbeatable in the rainforest!

The Canopy Walkway is accessible to all and requires no special skills or equipment. The suspended walkway is spread between 14 of the area’s largest rainforest trees and is one of the longest canopy walkways in the world.
Maintained by the Peruvian Foundation CONAPAC, the Canopy Walkway has extended research into an area where little is known and so much is left to be discovered.
