All aboard for an unforgettable train ride through the wondrous gorges of Mexico’s Copper Canyon! This impressive canyon system – comprised of six massive gorges – is four times larger than the Grand Canyon and more than 1,000 feet deeper in some places, and offers incredible views you will remember for a lifetime!
Before you board the “train ride in the sky,” you’ll travel from Arizona into Mexico, with stops in the Sonoran Desert and San Carlos. After sailing on the Sea of Cortez, you’ll explore the colonial city of Alamos and the 16th-century town of El Fuerte de Montesclaros.
Visit the first cultured pearl farm in the Americas and learn all about the Cultural Insight of pearl oyster farming, pearl grading and quality selection.
Stop in the small town of Guerrero where restaurant owners Alma Casavantes and her husband Paco Cabrera welcome you for a unique Be My Guest lunch. Experience an exquisite meal of traditional foods and share stories of the history of their family and of growing up in this part of the Chihuahua Desert, a region known for its apple orchards.
The journey into Copper Canyon climbs to 7,000 feet through spectacular tunnels and bridges. But you’ll do more than just pass through this breathtaking area. You’ll meet the nomadic people who’ve lived here for centuries and learn about the geology of this dramatic landscape.
