Copper Canyon…the greatest place the world has never seen…the home of the world renowned “CHEPE” train with 86 tunnels and 37 bridges…and the home of the mysterious barefoot running Raramuri (Tarahumara).

We take many guests there each year- about 2-3 trips per month and we invite you to travel the rails of Copper Canyon with us soon…We lead the field in Copper Canyon Trips.

Copper Canyon trip basics:

– Authentic Copper Canyon train trips are small group excursions and are spontaneous and fun.

all lodges, inns, and restaurants are safe and clean and each has been selected to give you a huge dose of authentic old Mexico. Rooms are private, there is hot water and linens are provided…and the hospitality flows!

the itinerary is loose and an emphasis is placed on maximizing your connection with this great land and its gracious people.

Dave has assembled a team Mexican partners as guides who are skilled experts on the area and intentional about you having the most enriching experience possible.

the trip is not a hiking/sleep on the ground deal, but there is always the option for a hike, bike, horse ride, or whatever. Each of our lodges has private rooms, linens, and hot water.

bottom line – when we say authentic, we mean it and you are sure to experience real Mexico in one of the “greatest places the world has never seen.”

the train experience is like icing on the cake…the Copper Canyon train is truly one of the world’s most spectacular railways! 86 tunnels and 37 bridges as it rolls some 400 miles through the majestic canyons. We have even compiled a printed guide to the train ride for your use on the journey. Ask and we will email you a copy.

Copper Canyon is simply majestic.
