Each trip focuses on another unique aspect of Mexico’s amazing landscape in Copper Canyon. We can customize trips for groups and since we keep our group size low there is always flexibility. There are also special options for Christmas, Easter and other special occasions.

Trips Can can now leave from El Paso, TX or Chihuahua City, Mexico (with guests flying to and from the airport) to allow you more time time enjoy the Sierra Madre mountains and perhaps the enchanting Sea of Cortez!

The Highest bridge on the Copper Canyon Train

On each of our Copper Canyon tours, I try to include as much of the train experience as possible. Tunnels come one after the other. Bridges sweep around corners and soar above rivers. None better than “Bridge Chinipas” in the video above. Bridge Chinipas…it is truly amazing. At 1018.5 feet  long,  this is the highest bridge […]

In our experience, the itinerary is not what you remember (2)

It is the food! The food scene in the Sierra Madres is varied and unique. There are several cultures shoulder to shoulder in the Sierra Madres- the Mexican population, the Tarahumara Indians, the Mennonites- and this makes for variety of delicious options there. Central northern Mexico- this “Norteño” area-  is largely undeveloped by most standards […]
