Copper Canyon: Ride the Copper Canyon railway

Visit Us

Ride the Copper Canyon railway

The burnt ochre rock faces of the Copper Canyon are the setting for one of the most spectacular rail journeys on the planet, penetrating into the Sierra Madre mountains and Sonora desert.

Whether clinging to sheer cliff walls, sailing across ravines or slicing through the inaccessible mountainside, the line provides an unrivalled vantage point over the striking terrain as the landscape transforms from snow-dusted peaks smothered in conifers to subtropical citrus groves.

Los Mochis is the starting point, before a stunning ride of hairpin bends, bridges and tunnels transports you to the most dramatic section of the canyon at Divisadero, where you can disembark to spend the night at a hotel perched right on the canyon edge. It's also possible to take the train in the opposite direction, starting in Chihuahua.

For the full experience we recommend taking a leisurely five days to complete the journey, with plenty of stops to gasp at the dizzying views, before returning by road.
