A journey from the Sierra Madre to Baja California -
A unique journey, partially by train, combining some of Mexico’s most magnificent scenery and one of its most fascinating indigenous tribes, together with the delights of Baja California.
After a day exploring Mexico City and its notable sights, you fly north to Chihuahua to board the Chihuahua al Pacifico, or El Chepe as it is familiarly known, for a spectacular two-day 400-mile train journey. Climbing to over 8000ft, the line passes through narrow forested gorges and seemingly impossible mountain tunnels to skirt the magnificent mile-deep Copper Canyons of the Sierra Madre, home to the Tarahumara Indians, Mexico’s least westernised indigenous tribe.
Alighting from El Chepe at El Fuerte, you fly west to the Baja Peninsula and end this fascinating journey with a three-night stay at a stylish boutique hotel in the heart of San Jose Cabo on the tip of the Baja Peninsula.
