El viaje de Copperpot (Copperpot's Trip) is Spanish pop rock band La Oreja de Van Gogh's second studio album, issued by Sony Music Entertainment on September 11, 2000. It was the band's first album to feature a bonus track. El viaje de Copperpot is the band's most successful album in Spain; it sold more than 1,300,000 copies and received a diamond certification. The album also catapulted the band's fame in Latin America going 3x Platinum in Mexico (under Mexican certification before 2001, 750,000 was 3x Platinum, but today it would be Diamond or 7x Platinum). Over 2,000,000 copies were sold worldwide. The album's title is inspired by Chester Copperpot, a scavenger in the film The Goonies.

It received generally favourable reviews from critics and produced eight Top 20 singles, including "Cuidate", "La Playa" and "Paris" which reached the No.1 spot on the Spain chart; as well as the hits "Mariposa" and "Soledad". It is considered their best album to date and one of the best pop albums in Spanish.
