Most of the life in the rainforest occurs in its highest reaches, the canopy. There has been little exploration of the upper levels of the Amazon rainforest on account of it being 30 meters (90 feet) or more above the ground. While hiking through the Peruvian jungle on a family green travel vacation, the tall canopy almost makes you feel as if you are walking through an immense sylvan cathedral with sun-dappled foliage acting as natural stained glass. The only problem posed by the sky-high canopy is realized when you try to watch toucans or other birds moving through the upper levels of the forest. Even with the best of binoculars, itís hard to appreciate their beautiful plumage from the forest floor, especially when they fly into the crowns of massive, old growth rainforest giants whose foliaged peaks can reach a height of 60 meters (180 feet)!

Fortunately, there is a an easy, eco travel solution for getting closer, much more intimate views of rainforest canopy birds, monkeys, and other creatures. At Refugio Amazonas, all you need to do is hike a short ways to the canopy tower, walk up the stairs, and you will find yourself looking into and over the last hidden realm of the rainforest. The canopy tower is 25 meters (80 feet) high and provides fantastic, close views into the crowns of huge Brazil Nut trees and overlooks a sea of forest.

From the upper levels of the tower, your guide will be scanning for monkeys, toucans, parrots, and other canopy dwellers and will show them to you with a spotting scope. The tower is an excellent place to see flocks of screeching parrots and parakeets fly by at eye level. Macaws also fly over the tower and occasionally perch in nearby trees. You can look down at exotic birds like jacamars and trogons as mixed flocks of glittering tanagers and honeycreepers flutter through the nearby greenery. Itís the easiest way to see birds and other animals that frequent the upper reaches of the forest and an essential activity for any family eco vacation.
