Natural History and Cultural Rail Adventures to Copper Canyon
*under new management!*
Mexico’s Western Sierra Madre
Memorable Experiences in Copper Canyon since 1971*
Canyon Travel is a specialized company that operates with private ecolodges and custom itineraries for people who want to experience a new culture, be adventurous, and witness a piece of paradise know as the Copper Canyon.
Experience wilderness without a mass of tourists and be closer than ever to nature and the Raramuri indian culture. Stay in lodges nestled in the mountains overlooking the breathtaking canyon below.
Military Macaws and Thick-billed Parrots are constantly flying overhead. Coatimundi, and other beautiful wildlife can be seen near the lodges every day. Visit with local Raramuri (Tarahumara) people like dropping in on neighbors, and enjoy the experience of a lifetime as you get to know another culture. Forget the hoards of tourists, touring the Copper Canyon is a natural experience filled with memories and adventure.
The Copper Canyon area is safe. Virtually all of the violence in Mexico is at the border. There have been zero incidents with tourists in the Copper Canyon area. We stay far away from affected areas and have every confidence that your trip will be safe…and very enjoyable!
*The company that is presently running what used to be “Canyon Travel” or “Columbus Travel” is no longer affiliated with Mr. Emilio Kifuri or any of his offices in Bulverde, Texas and is for all practical purposes, under new management with all the same key personel it has had since its inception in 1971. The new company is based out of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and it is recommended that you start your tour in Cabo and then take a one hour plane ride to Los Mochis where you will begin your trip with our agents in a safe environment. You may of course still fly in to Chihuahua or directly to Los Mochis if that is your preference.
