About Far Flung Adventures
Far Flung Adventures has been safely outfitting family and group river trips for over 40 years. We have run commercial adventures on dozens of rivers around the country and the world. With that said, these days we like to concentrate our work here in New Mexico, because this is the land and the people we care most about. The northern region of New Mexico offers access to unprecedented southwestern scenery and landscapes, and there is hardly any better vehicle for exploring that beauty than via one of our two great river systems. We are located in Taos, NM which provides easy access to the finest New Mexico rivers. The best rafting in the region can be found on The Rio Grande at the bottom of a beautiful gorge, or on America's Newest Wild and Scenic River, the Rio Chama. The fun starts shortly after ski season, as the snow begins to melt, providing excellent river conditions during runoff and throughout the summer.

Soak up New Mexico’s high desert scenery from the water on a gentle rafting tour down the Rio Grande. Mild class II rapids are suitable for all experience levels, with plenty of calm stretches in between to admire sloping canyon walls, rock cliffs, and the desert ecosystems of the Orilla Verde National Recreation Area. Great for small groups and families with older kids, the outdoor adventure makes an easy day trip from Taos.

Brian was an excellent guide! Took us down the half day trip, explained where we were, gave us history on the area, and made sure we had a ton of fun on the rapids! Definitely ask for Brian if you take this trip!

My family loved rafting the Lower Gorge in July. Far Flung managed all the details of the trip—including a delicious picnic lunch—and thanks to the expertise of our guide, we were able to enjoy a day of great scenery and fun on the Rio Grande.

Our family of five did the “race course” option last week and had a blast. Thankful we did the morning option as the weather was perfect and before what seems to be the daily afternoon showers. Rob was a terrific guide.
