The Copper Canyon is an impressive group of many canyons located in the Sierra Madre in Chihuahua, Mexico. Spend a full-day exploring this marvelous natural landscape by private vehicle, led by a local guide on a private tour. This tour is a combination tour of the Around Creel Tour/Combo Tour so you’ll see everything listed on those two tours PLUS you’ll drive further into the canyons, driving through the middle of Humira, Basihuare. and Copper Canyons.

Drive through the middle of the Basihuare Canyon, and then onto the bottom Copper Canyon at Humira Bridge. Take a walk across the bridge and you too can now say you’ve been to the bottom of Copper Canyon!

Visit Lake Arareko, a picturesque man-made reservoir, now used for fishing and boating. The local Rarámuri Indians gather around the lake to show off their handi-crafts.

If you’ve chosen to add in our Amigo Perfect Picnic for your outing today, then you’ll enjoy your picnic lunch with table and chairs somewhere along the way at a nice spot. Your driver will find a place that is perfect for dining and viewing at the lake or a perhaps a nearby forest or stream. Or you may prefer a more simple, but still wholesome lunch with our Box Lunch instead. Choose to add in either option during the check-out process.

Admire the spectacular Cusarare Waterfall–a marvel of nature at 100 feet high. Descend the steps to the bottom to enjoy a cooling dip in the pools if you are up for it.

Nearby are many locations to purchase the hand-made crafts of the Rarámuri Indians. These make excellent souvenirs or gifts to take back home.
