The first lodge I stayed at was ExplorNapo, on the Napo River. I was taken, of course, by the handsome parrots and capybara, but of course the canopy walkway was the focus of my time there. It's fairly new, built in the '90s, well maintained, and really not very scary at all. There are 13 tall emergent-growth trees between which the suspension bridges have been strung; you climb to the first one and then ascend gradually to the others. It's quite hot, and hot on the walk through the forest getting to it, but I loved every minute of it..

Click on the first picture and thereafter on the arrows, to progress along the walkway!
