Copper Canyon Hiking Highlights
Copper Canyon Hiking departures start in Los Mochis unless a Chihuahua departure is indicated. Both of these cities are located in the northwest of Mexico. These gateway cities may require internal flights, which are easily coordinated and can usually be done the same day arriving from abroad. There are direct flights from Los Angeles, Tucson, El Paso and other U.S. cities as well as from Mexico City, La Paz, Chihuahua, Merida, Guadalajara and other Mexican cities to Chihuahua and Los Mochis several times a day. The trip ends in the city of Chihuahua unless Los Mochis (El Fuerte) is indicated, from which there are also several daily flights to the aforementioned U.S. and Mexican cities.
This trip is a rugged adventure taking in the awesome canyons of Northern Mexico. It is ideal for active travelers wanting to combine remote hiking in pristine wilderness settings and wildlife viewing opportunities with visits to local villages and towns very much off the beaten path.
