Chihuahua, Copper Canyon

Beautiful scenery and remarkable culture

Within the rugged heartland of Sierra Madre Occidental lies the awe-inspiring Copper Canyon, a natural wonder that astounds and captivates visitors from around the world.

Known as "Barranca del Cobre" in Spanish, this expansive canyon system is a breathtaking labyrinth of gorges and valleys, boasting a grandeur that rivals the famous Grand Canyon. Embarking on a journey to the Copper Canyon promises an unforgettable experience, where incredible surroundings, rich indigenous culture, and all sorts of adventures await.

Spanning over 60,000 square kilometres, the Copper Canyon is a collection of six interconnected canyons, each offering its distinct charm and allure. The rugged terrain features dramatic cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and thick forests of pine and oak, creating a striking tapestry of colours and textures that mesmerize every visitor. Exploring the depths of these colossal canyons is an adventure, whether by hiking along scenic trails or riding aboard the iconic Chihuahua al Pacífico Railway, considered one of the most scenic train journeys in the world.

For adrenaline seekers, the Copper Canyon offers opportunities for zip-lining, rock climbing, and rappelling down the canyon walls. Absorb the unparalleled beauty from daring vantage points and feel the rush as you soar above the abyss, surrounded by this natural marvel.

Embracing the cultural aspect of the Copper Canyon is equally rewarding. The region is home to the indigenous Tarahumara people, known for their endurance running and intricate craftsmanship. Engaging with the Tarahumara community offers a glimpse into their ancient traditions, colourful textiles, and heartfelt hospitality. Witness traditional dances and ceremonies, and gain insight into their spiritual connection with the land. Don't miss the opportunity to try the local cuisine, which often includes traditional dishes prepared by the Tarahumara people, infused with unique flavours and ingredients only found in this region.
