We booked two adventures on different days with Far Flung: the Jeep tour to Closed Canyon, the half-day river float tour. The sites and experiences from both of these excursions are all very memorable, but the conversations with our guides were worth their weight in gold. The very knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guides help you instantly build a connection with... More

What a really nice place to stay! The staff were friendly and the casitas were super nice. They were like miniature log cabins on the inside. They are new and very clean! The beds are so comfortable and the views were nice. They also do adventure tours which we did not take advantage of, but could tell it would have... More

Far Flung staff and Greg (owner) set our boyscout troop up for a full day adventure rafting the rio grande. We packed our own lunch and were able to eat on the shores of Mexico.

The Far Flung team is amazing. The entire experience was hassle free - from booking the initial reservation to finally arriving in beautiful Big Bend. The canoe trip was the highlight of our vacation. The guides were professional, knowledgeable and patient. My teenagers had a blast as did I. Much appreciated! We are already looking forward to booking our next... More

The professionalism, the enthusiasm, the knowledge and the love off the environment that John and Billy displayed was out of the norm. Our safety and comfort were always on... More

We took a jeep trip out through some private land owned by Far Flung. Our guide, Grady was very informative about the vegetation in the area, as well as the geology of the land. He was a great guide and made our visit well worth the time.

After a long journey from the U.K, (scotland) we were delighted to reach our perfect casita lodging house, number 10.
