2018 Copper Canyon and other MexicoTrips

Authentic Copper Canyon train trips are simply the best. We know the place, our guides are local and excellent, and our trips are not a tour–they are an authentic experience in this majestic place! Of course we do some other cool trips to Mexico–with the same small group, flex itinerary, and cultural focus we introduced in Copper Canyon years ago. <<click here for info on other trips to authentic Mexico areas.

NOTE: Most of our trips are custom (we listen to you and plan a trip that fits your interests) and we go with just 2-4 people. So call or email today and lets discuss when you want to go to Copper Canyon–or to any of our short list of very special places in México.

Our “classic trip” is a small group serendipitous trip on the world renowned Copper Canyon train. This 6 -10 day excursion is a full immersion into the rich culture and geography of the enchanting Sierra Madres featuring the Tarahumara Indians (Rarámuri is the proper term– what they call themselves) and Mennonites, the delicious food, an emphasis on local places, the amazing new gondola and ziplines, Mata Ortiz pottery, the Paquime ruins and much more.

This excursion is carefully designed to maximize your experience in this grand place. We have travelled this majestic area extensively, our guides live there and know it well, and our travel expertise makes for the best trips available. Our itineraries are flex so as to fit with your interests. and schedule
