Overview & Highlights

Combine the famous train ride along the rim and through the gorges of  desert Mexico's Copper Canyon with the beaches of Baja California.

  • Teotihuacan and Guadeloupe shrine, Mexico City
  • Zipline and cablecar tour
  • Elephant Rock, Jesuit Mission and Cusarare waterfall

Inland from Mexico's west coast the seemingly fathomless Copper Canyon cuts a swathe through the barren desert crust. You’ll ride world-famous railway traversing this route, with views of some of the continent's most spectacular mountain scenery. There are a score of ravines and gorges, and an infinite variety of landscape and vegetation from snow-dusted peaks smothered in conifers to sub-tropical citrus groves.

Mexico’s Baja California is a finger of desert stretching 1,300km south from California, separated from the Mexican mainland by the Sea of Cortés. The southern tip, with its chalk-white sands and translucent aquamarine seas, attracts visitors from all over the world, especially the US and Europe. But instead of staying at a large beach resort you will be based in the colonial centre of arty San José del Cabo, where there are plenty of outdoor and cultural activities to choose from.

Copper Canyon Railway departure schedules are subject to
change, which could result in alterations to the described itinerary.  Our
expert Travel Consultants will be able to advise you if this is the case at the
time of booking.
