There is a deep romance on this train as it rolls through Copper Canyon.
There is a reason they make movies about trains- they are romantic, always seem to carry a story, and they take you to places often out of the way.
The CHEPE tracks stretch their way through one of the world's great destinations, Copper Canyon
The Copper canyon train has its characters. The old guy who takes your pic with an antiquated camera and turns it into a key chain in a few minutes. The macho steward Daniel- I caution my female guests about him. The cowboys…and of course the zany Horacio..
Horacio gets on and off the train (lives in Bahuichivo) and sells newspapers, burritos- and enlivens the scene.
Kids are a big part of train culture…

Click here to ask a question or get more info. One common question people have is if this is a hiking/sleep on the ground trip. Answer: No. We stay each night in small cabanas or hotels, all of which are very clean and include hot water and linens. There is always the opportunity for a good walk, but ground transport is always available.
Most of our trips originate in El Paso and end in Baja.
Now we also have the option of flying directly to Chihuahua City (CUU) to begin our trips. Direct flights from Dallas (American Airlines) and Houston (United Airlines) go daily to CUU.
Guests can return home from Cabo (SJD).
This gives us an extra day in Copper Canyon and smooths the trip as it eliminates the long drive in from El Paso. Call Dave today at 217.369.9897 for details.
