On this six-day, five-night adventure you’ll
enjoy spectacular vistas from Divisadero, visit Tarahumara caves
and Indian schools at Creel, and ride the famous Chihuahua al Pacifico
Railroad. It can begin in either Los Mochis or Chihuahua. The following
itinerary is an example of a trip beginning in Los Mochis.
You’ll transfer from Los Mochis to the small
colonial city of El Fuerte
, where you’ll spend the night at a charming hotel.
In the morning you’ll board the first-class
Copper Canyon train and travel up into the Sierra Madre Mountains,
passing through 86 tunnels and crossing 37 bridges. This is one
of the most spectacular train rides in the Western Hemisphere.
In the afternoon you’ll arrive at Divisadero
and stay at a picturesque lodge located right on the edge of
the canyon. Here you’ll make your first contacts with the
cave-dwelling Tarahumara Indians. You can hike along the canyon
rim or just relax at the hotel—either way you’ll enjoy
After lunch you will board the train for Creel
, a lumber town high in the Sierra Madre Mountains.
The day will be spent exploring the area around
Creel, touring the countryside, Tarahumara Indian caves and missions,
and Cusarare Falls. A good place to buy Tarahumara Indian crafts
is the Mission Store in Creel. The profits go toward running the
hospital built by Father Luis Verplancken for the Indian children.
You will board the train for the return trip to
El Fuerte. You’ll be met at the train station and driven
to the hotel to spend a final night.
Today you’ll leave Copper Canyon, but you’ll
take along with you the wonderful memories of this remote area
and the people who make it their home.
