Did you know that Mexico’s Copper Canyon is four times larger than the Grand Canyon -- and deeper?

We start our journey in the beautiful colonial town of El Fuerte where we spend the first night. The following morning we board the El Chepe Express Train, described as one of the best railroad adventures in North America to Bahuichivo Station and begin a descent into the Urique Canyon. We spend two nights near Cerocahui and on the third day we descend into the deepest part of the canyon system (optional) and put our feet in the Urique River. The following day we take on the winding roads through the highlands to Creel where we spend the fourth and fifth nights. Creel is in the Northern part of the canyon complex. Tours of Creel and surrounding area are included, as well a scenic drive to Divisadero for a ride on the new aerial tram deep into the canyon. On the sixth day we rise early to board the Chepe Express all the way back to El Fuerte for our final night of the tour. The next morning we take a river boat tour for birding as a closing of our adventure.
