Mexico's Copper Canyon Trails

Barranca de Cobre • Batopilas • Urique • Oteros • Candamena • Oteros • Sinforosa • Chinipas

Mexico's Copper Canyon is much more than just one canyon. The vast northwestern Sierra Madre and Sierra Tarahumara include at least 15 major canyons, the homeland of tens of thousands of Tarahumara (Raramuri) Indians, traditional Mexican ranchers, and prospectors. Just a day's travel south of the U.S. border, the Copper Canyon is still remarkably untouched by progress. This is one of America's best, yet least-known regions for hiking, camping, and do-it-yourself adventure.

Carl's Copper Canyon Notebook : Updates, Tips & Travel Reports

Sunday, March 31, 2002

Lorena and I are working with Adventure Specialists to firm up our guiding and tour schedule for the 2002 Autumn travel season, and also the Spring of 2003. If you're thinking about joining one of our trips, I strongly suggest that you check our hiking/tour calendar soon -- some trips have already filled. We'll be happy to "wait list" you on those, and if we have enough interest we might also schedule additional departures.

Our 2002 - 2003 tour and hiking schedule.

Custom trips and exploratory hikes are a challenge to organize, but Lorena and I are irresistably drawn to less-traveled trails and new country. If you have an idea, a possible route, or just want to turn a vague daydream into a genuine adventure, feel free to contact us. If we can't design or lead a special trip for you, we might know someone who can.

We also do custom tours elsewhere in Mexico and Honduras.
