Drive Through 4 Canyons
We’ll start the day by driving to the farthest point on the tour to see the overlook of Batopilas Canyon. During the drive, we’ll pass through Basihuare, Humira and Copper Canyons, pausing at overlooks and for photographs as we go along. We’ll be descending from over 7,500 feet to the very bottom of the Copper Canyon and passing through pine forest into deciduous forest. It will get warmer as we descend so do wear layers for best comfort.
2:00pm - 3:30pm
Stop For Lunch
If you’ve included the Perfect Picnic, or one of the box lunches today as an Add-On during your tour, your guide will stop to set up your lunch for you at a nice overlook, or perhaps near a river or stream. Enjoy an immersive experience as you dine in the outdoors in Amigo Style.
3:30pm - 5:30pm
As we make our way back towards Creel after a day of viewing canyons, we’ll stop off at the Cusarare Waterfall where you can do a bit of walking to the falls for some exercise.
Lake Arareko is about 5 miles (8 km) outside of Creel and means “horseshoe” in the Rarármuri language. This lovely lake was originally man-made to be used as a reservoir for Creel. It is used now mainly for paddle boat rides, fishing and weekend cook-outs by the locals. We’ll stop here as well if we make it back before sunset.
Drop off at hotel
You’ll be dropped back at your hotel after a full day of canyon touring. Be sure to ask your guide about restaurant recommendations, and be sure to check out our Face Book page in the next week or so as we’ll be posting your 4 Canyons & More day tours photos for you and your friends and family to enjoy!
We will be passing through several different climate zones today on the tour, so it is ideal to wear layers so you will be most comfortable in all the different zones. If you are visiting during the rainy season; July through September, please be sure to bring rain gear.
This tour is mainly about seeing as many canyons in one day as possible so there will not be a lot of time for hiking. Your guide will try to give you some time to do a bit of hiking in the Cusarare Waterfall area, if time permits. If you are looking for a full day tour that includes ample hiking, we recommend you choose the Basaseachi Falls tour instead.
No, because you will be in the remote canyon regions, you will not find anywhere to purchase food. Be sure to include one of our picnic Add-Ons for your own convenience, or bring along something to eat on your own if you prefer it.
However, please note that our picnic Add-Ons have all been specifically designed to fill you up and add a special touch to your tour that will make it more memorable.
