Get on board for your train journey through the remote Copper Canyon system, the world-famous natural wonder of the world. This mammoth labyrinth of seven indescribably beautiful major canyons qualifies for national park & world heritage status. Wider, greener and a mile deeper at one point than the Grand Canyon in Arizona, this Copper Canyon system should be a “must see” on everyone’s travel list.
Imagine yourself riding through this immense series of canyons & ridges that encompass 25,000 square miles of rugged wilderness territory. Rivers born in the high pine forests have carved a 10,000-mile maze through spectacular steep-walled gorges into the volcanic rock of the Copper Canyon Sierra Madre Occidental Mountain Range. With temperatures ranging from 55-77 degrees almost every month of the year is desirable weather anytime for trips in Copper Canyon, MX.
We utilize the award winning Balderrama Hotels in the prime locations of the canyon system.
Wind your way up from the Pacific Ocean through the most exciting part of the railway, up into the heart of this scenic splendor, as you ride the historic Copper Canyon Chihuahua al Pacífico Railroad. Built over a 90-year period, this railroad is an engineering masterpiece. The Readers’ Digest has called it “the most dramatic train ride in the western hemisphere.”
Visit the cave homes & ranchos of the Tarahumara Indians who have made the Copper Canyon country their home for three centuries.

*New Copper Canyon Adventure Park :
Copper Canyon has a new adventure park which sports the second longest zip line course in the world and the third longest cable car ride in the world (6 km). For those who like speed and adventure, one can fly across the canyon system on a seven jump, eleven platform zip line course which extends over 4 miles through the canyon. “ Flying” at over 2300 ft. above the canyon floor and walking across the two suspension bridges allows a dramatic view of the canyon floor which you do not experience from hiking or even from a helicopter. The zip liners will return at the end of their course on the cable car.
The longest cable car ride in Mexico is a part of the new adventure park. Two cable cars holding 60 passengers each run across the canyon, affording magnificent views of Tarahumara Indian ranchos in this expansive canyon system. In addition, there is the “Via Ferrata”, an obstacle course with rappelling, rock climbing and horizontal traverses that is an amazing test of outdoor skill, utilizing the latest in safety equipment.

THE “GRINGO” AND THE LITTLE DOG” - When I went to the village of Creel to sell my bear grass baskets I saw an old White Man being pulled by a little dog around the square. At first I counted how many circles it pulled the old man around and then I finally lost count. People said a “Gringo” was driving the little dog-and that he even spoke to the dog in English, telling him when and where to turn and when to stop. These people are very strange!” Life Through the Eye of the Tarahumara- Romayne Wheeler
