“Western Canyon trip is well worth taking”
Reviewed February 23, 2012
Canyon Travel has some poor reviews due to previous owners. We took a chance and signed up for the Western Canyon tour and had a wonderful time. It was a very individualized trip with native guides giving us the history and culture of the area as well as the names of the flora and fauna. The scenery is spetacular and the ride to Urique was breath-taking. We were very happy with our experience and would recommend it to our friends. The only downside was the main office didn’t get us our itinerary before the trip; but they are working to rectify that problem.

“The Copper Canyon is a sight not to be missed!”

Our trip started at El Fuerte where we stayed at the Rio Vista Lodge. It is right by the river and we enjoyed a bird watching trip down the river. The food at the Rio Vista Lodge was excellent. Our journey continued on the train up to the canyon. We had great views of the mountains and admired tthe construction of the railway through this very difficult terrain. We left the train at Bahuichivo where Mario met us and took us to the Urique Canyon. Mario was a great guide and took us to meet Tarahumara people and helped us understand something of their lives. Back on the train to Posada Barrancas where we were met Noel and Gustavo, very knowledgeable guides. Noel took us on hikes down the canyon and we particularly enjoyed the gondola and the hike from the gondola. We would like to go back there and spend more time, maybe hiking down the cnayon and camping at the bottom.
