Enjoy the spectacular Copper Canyon on one of the world’s most exciting train rides! After a flight to Los Mochis we travel to the colonial town of El Fuerte for our first night. Our journey along the famous Copper Canyon Railway begins early the following day, boarding in El Fuerte and disembarking in the town of Bahuichivo for transfer to Cerocahui; the base for our trip to see the breathtaking Urique Canyon and to visit a Tarahumara boarding school.
On day three we take in more stunning views as we travel from Bahuichivo to the famous Hotel Mirador, where we spend two nights on the edge of the canyon, and EVERY ROOM HAS VIEW! From here we enjoy a visit to traditional Tarahumara cave dwellings, the Piedra Volada (flying rock) viewpoint and offer optional extras such as a cable car ride, zip lining or the famous Zip Rider!
The final part of our trip includes a transfer to Chihuahua, where we offer a city tour and spend our final night before flying home.
*For our 2020-2021 season this itinerary has been adapted to avoid staying in densly populated areas – we will be staying in Creel instead of Chihuahua, and returning by train to Los Mochis, making this a 7-day tour, instead of 6 days.
