MEXICO'S SILVER ROAD
Few consider Mexico as a crossroads of the world, yet in ancient times, three major trade routes converged in Mexico City - paved with the riches of Mexico's silver mines. This UNESCO protected journey is an extensive exploration of the southern El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro (The Royal Inland Road). The section we will explore is fondly called La Puerta del Camino Real - or The Door to the Royal Road. This route converges with Mexico's La Ruta del Independencia, and most importantly acknowledges the indigenous groups who carved this trade route beneath their feet, long before the Spanish arrived, carrying turquoise, feathers, salt and other goods to their allies throughout central and northern Mexico.
COPPER CANYON ADVENTURES
Traverse the Sierra Tarahumara over a two week exploration of a series of incredible canyons that are most commonly referenced as the Copper Canyon. This incredible adventure will introduce you to nature hikes to waterfalls, adventurous roads to write home about, wine made from grapes salvaged from exiled Jesuits, a breathtaking gondola ride, ziplines in dangerous places, and a romantic ride through the Lands of the Raramuri, aboard El Chepe Regional Train. We will climb to high altitudes for stunning views, and descend into the base of Urique and Batopilas Canyons to tropical weather, picnic on the earth's magnificent edge, and fly over Sinforosa Canyona in a Cessna Plane. We are looking forward to getting back on the road once Covid is behind us - please contact us for more information!

Due to Covid, we are awaiting clearance for travel to the state of Chihuahua, with probable dates in 2022. This is a two week exploration of Mogollon Culture that includes a 5 day extensive workshop with Gloria Hernandez in the small but famous village, Mata Ortiz.

Stay in Casas Grandes, explore Huapoca Canyon, and enjoy the wonderous sites and museums of Chihuahua City. This experience is routed through Mexico City, making it easy access for anyone worldwide.
