Mexico Silver Route

Encounter an unseen, forgotten Mexico; colonial cities, majestic shrines, and traditional rural communities, all while following the old Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, a 2.500 long trade route used to transport silver. Take in the beautiful natural landscapes of oak forests, mountains passes and wildlife-filled floodplains and discover 500 years of history, through cobbled streets little changed in centuries and an indigienous culture rarely glimpsed by outsiders.


Youโ€™ll be exploring a part of Mexicoย that few visitors get to see. The pace can be fast where the terrain allows although there are some steep mountain sections where the pace is walking.

Starting with some steep mountain passes before descending into peaceful wooded valleys of pine forests, filled with birdsong. As the week progresses, youโ€™ll be able to pick up the pace on sandy desert tracks before reaching the undulating terrain of the wetlands and floodplains created by the overflowing Laja river.
