Copper Canyon Railway Customized Tour

Tour Description

Experiencing the Copper Canyon by rail provides an experience so shockingly pure and majestic visitors feel as they’ve entered into a whole new world. Although the area that the 100 mile Copper Canyon Railroad bisects is commonly referred as the Copper Canyon, it is in fact a 900 square-mile maze of more than 200 canyons mostly interconnected and linked by three main rivers through the length of the Sierra Madre Mountains. It is say, that some of these canyons are deeper and cover more area than the Arizona Grand Canyon.

These Canyons lands are the home of the Tarahumara (Raramuris) who settle in this place many years ago. This is a unique indigenous culture that has preserved their primitive traditions, living on caves along the Canyon walls, cliff-dwellers or in small log cabins through the Canyons floor.

One of the unique features on this destination is the railway train journey, one of the best ways to experience the wonders of the Copper Canyon. The Copper Canyon Railroad is actually the fabled Chihuahua al Pacifico railway also know by the locals as the “Chepe” runs air-conditioned first class trains every day from Chihuahua City to Los Mochis, a city near the Sea of Cortes. This train route, 100 years in the making, traverses some 86 tunnels and 32 bridges revealing breathtaking vistas and towns with diverse cultures. These and the quaint hotels along the route, provide just enough amenities to make this the trip of a lifetime.
