Copper CanyonThere are parts of Mexico that very few people in the world have the opportunity of seeing. One of these is the Copper Canyon – Barranca del Cobre – a group of canyons consisting of six distinct canyons in the Sierra Tarahumara in the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. The overall canyon system is larger, and portions are deeper, than the Grand Canyon in neighboring Arizona.

The Copper Canyon is one of the most spectacular natural landscapes in the northwestern Mexican desert, and the train ride along the canyon is one of the most famous and scenic in the world. The walls of the canyon are a copper green color, after which the canyon is named. The traditional indigenous culture of the Tarahumara is uniquely strong in this region, preserved by the rugged mountainous landscape. Experience the marvelous natural beauty of Mexico!
