The largest canyon complex in North America, a destination unlike any other! At an altitude of feet, the mountain peaks are snow-capped in winter while the canyon bottom remains at tropical climate. Experience one of the most dramatic rail journeys in the western hemisphere, on a rail line that took years to complete.
Copper Canyon may be in one of the most remote regions in Mexico, but we make it accessible. After exploring the canyon region and nearby attractions, we fly home from Chihuahua. We meet our Tour Director and transfer to our beautiful beach hotel, Pueblo Bonito.
After a flight to Los Mochis we travel to the colonial town of El Fuerte for our first night. Our journey along the famous Copper Canyon Railway begins early the following day, boarding in El Fuerte and disembarking in the town of Bahuichivo for transfer to Cerocahui; the base for our trip to see the breathtaking Urique Canyon and to visit a Tarahumara boarding school. From here we enjoy a visit to traditional Tarahumara cave dwellings, the Piedra Volada flying rock viewpoint and offer optional extras such as a cable car ride, zip lining or the famous Zip Rider!
The canyon is also home to the indigenous Tarahumara people, who are known for their handicrafts and artisanship and can be visited at several points throughout the canyon. The fact that the canyon rises from sea level to high desert of Chihuahua means that it contains several different climate zones, each with its own ecology and natural highlights. Being a vast and diverse area, many visitors prefer to explore the Copper Canyon by way of guided tours, which usually use the railway as the main form of transportation within the canyon.
If you are interested in encountering rare cultures, seeing unparalleled and distant natural vistas or riding breathtaking rail routes, the Copper Canyon is your next great journey. Copper Canyon is home to the Tarahumara native people, some of whom still live in cave homes or small mountainous ranchos, and maintain a traditional way of life. As our client, you will stay in the most beautiful hotels and eat the best food the Canyon has to offer, while getting to know the local people and history. El Chepe makes only a few stops for visitors, where shuttles take us to remote properties nestled in picturesque valleys, or sitting canyon-side with soaring views.
Explore the area with a hiking trip through the mountains or take the picturesque train ride through the peeks. Visitors can also chose to head out on mountain bike trails or take leisurely boat rides down the El Fuerte River. The area is rich in wildlife, including colorful parrots, squirrels, raccoons, snakes, fox, eagles, and various domesticated animals.
