Fredy and I took the half day canoe trip down Dark Canyon. Our guide, Reed was awesome! He really knows the history of this place and had some awesome stories to tell!

We spent an amazing day with the very friendly and riveting guide Billy, who not only entertained us but also made us, a family of reserved and quite unadventurous Brits, feel totally at ease on the river. The day began early at the Far Flung headquarters in Terlingua, where we were greeted enthusiastically by the staff, who booked us in... More

We did a one-day float through Colorado Canyon this past Friday and had a blast! The scenery is indescribably beautiful in this neck of the woods making it a bit of a challenge to decide where to look at any one time -- but no worries because there is plenty of time to see it all. What really made the... More

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

It was our first trip to Big Bend (my daughter and I) and we selected the Round the Bend jeep tour. Our guide for the day was Randy and he was such a pleasure to spend the day at Big Bend with. 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
