Gatun Lake Boat Tour & Rainforest Hike, Panama

Travel along the scenic Gamboa Road to the Soberania National Park for a walk along the Pipeline Road, Plantation Road or El Charco Trail, all of which are fantastic for viewing the unique ecology of the canal watershed.

The flora and fauna is rich and varied and as well as hundreds of species of bird it is also possible to see sloth, capuchin and howler monkeys, agouti and white-nosed coatis to name a few.

The forest itself is pristine and you will see many different types of trees and plants such as wild cashew, rubber trees, tropical palms, epiphytes, orchids and fichus.

After the hike you are taken to Gatun Lake to observe other diverse ecosystems by boat. You travel part of the Panama Canal and discover that it is a haven for wildlife and tropical forest, and much more than just a waterway which container ships pass through. Keep an eye out for spectacled caiman, green iguana, fresh water turtles, monkeys, sloth and various water birds.
