Far Flung exceeded our expectations before we even arrived. We were delayed due to a flat tire in the middle of nowhere a Texas and thought we would have to cancel, or at least settle for a day trip. But (due largely to the fact that we were there off season, but also because they are great people), we were... More

The absolute best way to see Big Bend is from The Rio Grande River! We took a 3 day river trip through Boquillas Canyon. The canyons and surrounding desert are just beautiful. And no matter how hot it is (we went in August), the river is there to cool you down. Far Flung was excellent at taking care of all... More

He was very knowledgeable of the area and the history and provided us with many interesting facts about... More

We stayed at the FFOC with a Road Scholar tour 2.5 years ago. It was fabulous! The casitas were clean and cozy, even luxurious with satellite cable and wifi. Valynda and Greg are great hosts and have thought of everything. We are looking forward to another Big Bend trip; we will certainly stay at the FFOC again and this time... More

Our one day canoe trip with Far Flung Adventures was the highlight of our trip to Big Bend. Our guides were Billy and Ben and they were terrific! On our way to the Santa Elena Canyon, we ran into three snakes on the road. Billy stopped and moved each one out of the way so we wouldn't run over them,... More

My wife and I just spent our anniversary here and it was a great experience. Nice sized very clean cabins with most of the amenities. It was lacking a stove top but I made a pan out of foil and cooked our breakfast on the outdoor grill. All of the staff were very helpful with their suggestions and always friendly.... More

We had the pleasure of working with Far Flung on our honeymoon. This company is a huge part of what made our adventure so perfect. The desk staff are knowledgeable, honest, and fun to chat with. We did our honeymoon during spring break, peak season for the. They made an exception for us and let us rent a canoe instead... More

Had a great trip with our guides JD and Laura. They have a lot of knowledge and kept the trip interesting. Some of the roads we wanted to go on in the park were closed due to recent rain. Yes it does sometimes rain there! To make up for the closure our guides extended our trip and took us to... More
