This was our 3rd or 4th trip to Far Flung's Cabins. The place is spotlessly clean and the cabins are really comfortable. They have flat screen TV, small kitchen with coffee maker, microwave and ice box. There is large fire pit out back that was lit each evening for our pleasure. We also enjoyed a game of horseshoes at the... More

We booked an ATV tour weeks in advance with Far Flung. During our travels here, a huge winter storm arrived and knocked out power for days. We were staying in a trailer and our battery died meaning we had no heat. We tried to back out of the tour but they would only issue as a credit. When I told... More

We had originally booked and paid for a river tour with Far Flung. However, the weather was cold and windy on the afternoon we were suppose to go -- the river was the last place we wanted to be. We called and asked if we could change to a jeep tour; while they couldn't accommodate us until the next day,... More

Took the half-day raft trip in Big Bend Ranch State Park, which adjoins Big Bend National Park. The scenery was beautiful on the ride over and back. The river ride was quiet and sedate with a couple of bumps. The scenery was lovely during the river trip which took us through Dark Canyon. This is a good first time rafting... More

Big Bend is one of the most beautiful, rugged, unique and remote places I have ever been and due to this fact, I wanted to visit it through a company that was well respected in the region - FAR FLUNG. I could not have been more impressed with the hospitality, friendliness, and level of service that they provided me and... More

My wife and I took a "Round the Bend" Jeep tour in November of 2014, Had an excellent guide that could tell us all of the background history of the park. She knew all about the geology, plant life etc. She let us decide where we ultimately went and made great suggestions! Well worth the fee for the tour!! I... More

We spent 3 nights at the Far Flung Outdoor Center in November of 2014. This is truly the best place to stay in Terlingua. The casitas were wonderful and well laid out. We were extremely surprised by all the little things that they had thought about. It had rained the day of our arrival and it was quite muddy -... More

I couldn't have asked for more...a trip to Big Bend to hike in the autumn. Of course, the weather was out of our control and we spent most of the time in clouds and drizzle, but the Far Flung guides were excellent in all aspects of this trip that could be 'managed.' Adana, Thomas, and Dean all possess good people... More

My wife and I have done two trips with Far Flung (one in 2010 and the other in 2014). In 2010, the water was high enough that we went through Santa Elena Canyon. In 2014, we went to an area south of the national park. You can count on Far Flung to have your safety and enjoyment as their most... More
