We also are offering a three night extension to the world renowned Canopy Tower provides spectacular views of the forest canopy. Lodging and our base of operations will be the Canopy Tower with unlimited access to the fabulous Observation Deck every morning, afternoon and evening, where we’ll enjoy “canopy birding” at its best! We’ll take excursions to some of Panamá’s premier birding locations, including the world famous Pipeline Road, along with Semaphore Hill, Plantation Trail, Summit Ponds, and Panamá Rainforest Discovery Center and its remarkable tower, Chagres River. Gamboa and the marshy Ammo Ponds round out an outstanding week of birding.

Note: Canopy Tower extension can only be taken with the Canopy Camp tour.
