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.

Native Tarahumara
Indians of México

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.
