Mennonite Chihuahua and Copper Canyon tour

Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity see first-hand the stunning Barranco del Cobre or Copper Canyon, a natural wonder four times larger than Arizona’s Grand Canyon.

After leaving Chihuahua, head south-westwards towards the foothills of the western Sierra Madre. The first stop will be at the fascinating village of Cuauhtemoc, settled by the Mennonites, a pacifist Protestant religious sect that began arriving in the area from Russia and Canada in the 1920s either to escape persecution or in search of somewhere to be left in peace. Then after a light lunch, head out to Divisadero, a privileged viewing point for the Barranco del Cobre system. The Barranco is formed by six distinct canyons, larger and deeper than the Grand Canyon in the US.

In this guided visit you will have the opportunity to visit the observation decks around of Divisadero as you enjoy stunning views down to the canyon floor, hundreds of metres below you.
