Cultural and Natural History Adventures in Copper Canyon with Private Lodges
"As the number of people visiting the Sierra increases, tour companies are taking people deeper into the mountains to get away from the effects of mass tourism. The best of the bunch is Canyon Travel. Canyon Travel is pretty much in a class by itself. It has lined up some beautiful small lodges in the canyons and in El Fuerte and has staffed them with local guides. Canyon also offers a lot of flexibility, and it takes responsibility for the people it sends into the Sierra, responding quickly to problems."
