Copper Canyon Tours

The Copper Canyon, nestled in the Sierra Madre Range, is actually several large canyons boasting a grandeur four times larger than the Grand Canyon of the United States, although different in nature; narrower, deeper, and more verdant. Homeland to the reclusive Tarahumara natives, the Sierra Madre is rich in history and legend, haunted by the restless shadows of fallen warriors, martyred Jesuits and Pancho Villa’s army.

The Copper Canyon qualifies unquestionably for national park and world heritage status. This world famous canyon system is one of Mexico’s natural, cultural and historic wonders.

Located in in the middle of the legendary Sierra Madre Mountains of the northwestern Mexico’s state of Chihuahua, this immense series of canyons and ridges, covers 25,000 square miles of rugged territory.

Explore Copper Canyon

The Western Sierra Madre is without a doubt, one of the most spectacular regions in Mexico. This awesome mountainous region has attracted world-wide attention since it is home to one of the longest and deepest system of canyons in the world.

The Copper Canyon system is a geographical landmark full of history and culture, as well as the home to a variety of natural wonders and to caves, forests, mountains and notable biodiversity. If you embark on a Copper Canyon Tour, you will find towns from the prehispanic culture, technological marvels of our own era, the age-old culture of the Tarahumara and the Mestiza culture, which also provides us with towns, traditions, legends and cuisine. Enjoy this region, which is such a privileged part in our country.


Native Tahamara Indians of Mexico

The dignified and reclusive Tarahumara Natives are a tribe who have chosen to live apart from modern western culture. They live primitively, subsisting on corn, beans, and their livestock. In the winter they live in caves, moving into small log cabins in the summer. They are excellent weavers and produce fine wool blankets to provide warmth during the harsh winters of the canyon.
