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!
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.

Central northern Mexico- this “Norteño” area- is largely undeveloped by most standards […]Take a Tour
Two Threads of Steel Through the Sierra Madres It is not just a tourist train at all. It is THE way to get through the Sierra Madres. It is not an antique train. It is a diesel powered means of transportation and the cars are modern. No Copper Canyon tour is complete without a good […]Take a Tour
