A trip to the majestic Sierra Madre Occidental and Mexico's famed Copper Canyon can be an adventure of a lifetime.

Make a once-in-a-lifetime trip even more memorable by experiencing the romance, adventure and nostalgia of exploring nature on an "iron horse."

Real Mexican Adventures

Based in Amarillo, Texas, Real Mexican Adventure Tours offer five-day and seven-day round-trip tours, as well as a six-day one-way trip. The one-way tour gives guests the convenient option of flying directly into Chihuahua (Real Mexican Adventure Tours owns and operates a private plane) and taking the train south to Copper Canyon. Tours are all-inclusive and give travelers the option of taking their trip from either the northbound or southbound train. Real Mexican Adventure Tours also provide four-star accommodations in the canyon and serve guests three meals a day. All tours offer the option of embarking on side visits to the cliff dwellings, bass fishing at Lake Huites Lodge and trips to the canyon base for a nominal fee. Prices for Real Mexican Adventure Tours vary, depending on the size of the group, and are based on the tour you choose. While most parts of the tour allow for independent exploration, knowledgeable tour guides are available at most sites along the tour.
