Journey Mexico is proud to announce that our Copper Canyon Semana Santa Hiking Trip has been selected as one of National Geographic Traveler Magazine’s 2011 “50 Tours of a Lifetime,” and will be featured in the May/June 2011 issue of National Geographic Traveler. The Copper Canyon Semana Santa Hiking Trip is the seasonal version of our classic, award winning Copper Canyon Hiking Tour, which runs several times each year.
The National Geographic team spends countless hours researching the most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best-guided, and most sustainable tours across the globe before choosing their 50 Tours of a Lifetime list. “The outfitters we selected continue to find new ways travelers can connect with places and people,” notes senior editor Norie Quintos, who headed up the project. “More and more, it’s about human interaction.
National Geographic Traveler magazine has been surfacing the best tours and outfitters for travelers for the last six years, as part of the magazine’s mission “to propel readers out of their armchairs and into the field.”
