THERE IS NO OTHER TREASURE AS PLEASURABLE AS FANTASY’S COPPER CANYON 19 DAY VACATION

THE DIVERSE MIXTURE OF CULTURE, FOOD AND CLIMATE IS, IN ITSELF, INCREDIBLE. The first-class train ride that sweeps through mountainous terrain delivering you to the amazing, and grand, Copper Canyon is an experience of a lifetime. As you explore the cave dwellings of the Tarahumara Indians and experience the canyon culture, you will be treated to elegant hotel accommodations along the canyon rim. The adventuresome vacationer seeking ‘bragging rights’ about their unique travels will enjoy the highlight of this tour…a trek to the bottom of this remote canyon on the most scenic drive in all of México.

Our return follows the Sea of Cortez with relaxing beaches and tropical pleasures before we return to the deluxe RV resort in Tucson, AZ. This life enriching experience will reward you with fantastic memories and stories to share with your friends for years to come. Fantasy has arranged for the well known, ‘Green Angels’ to accompany the caravan to offer professional services along our route.

Combine this tour with the 2015 Southern California Reunion Rally.

Today when Fantasy guests catch their first startling glimpse of the canyon cutting deeper into the earth than the Grand Canyon… all things seem dwarfed by its grandeur.

The closer you get, the more you see. The canyon walls climb from desert flora to high pine forests, wrapping around fertile valleys dotted with crystalline mountain lakes. Intricate twists of the canyon reveal waterfalls, wildlife, archeological sites and the dwellings of the shy Tarahumara Indians, called the most primitive tribe still living in North America. More than 50,000 semi-nomadic natives still live in this region in the traditional style of their ancestors.

The ancient explorers in Copper Canyon had some advantage over contemporary travelers; on foot or horse, they could more easily get an eyeful of this mystical land without a partner nervously reminding them to keep their eyes on the road. Luckily, RVers can now tour this wonderland while gawking and gasping to their heart’s content.

For the passenger train experience of a lifetime, you may leave your RV parked at a secured RV park in Los Mochis and travel aboard the Premier Express Train and stay at a deluxe hotel at the rim of the canyon. The option leaves you free to stare and utter exclamations as the train climbs to 8,000 feet, over bridges, into tunnels and through terrain that Reader’s Digest called “the most dramatic train ride on earth.”

We have incorporated Copper Canyon into many of our Mexico tours... How could we not want to share a place so magical?

Join Fantasy RV Tours on a First Class Passenger Train to the Copper Canyon. Described as North America's most scenic train ride we provide an opportunity to really see the magnificent scenery of the Copper Canyon aboard the Premier Express Train on the Chihuahua-Pacifico Railroad. We park Rv’s at a secured RV park in Los Mochis and travel abroad the train staying at a deluxe hotel at the rim of the canyon. We believe that the experience is truly worthwhile and that you will enjoy the scenery and people of this unique region.

“Our 19 day Copper Canyon trip in Feb. 2010 was wonderful and we had a fantastic time. The part we enjoyed the most was traveling to the bottom of the Canyon to Batopilas. We always felt quite safe the entire time we were in Mexico. This tour with Fantasy was a lifelong dream for us which finally came true!"
