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.

Booked completed the full day Middle Box rafting trip and had a blast! Our party of 4 was paired with our guide Will and I think we all enjoyed our day, especially when Will cracked some jokes about the government only to find out we all worked for the government! :) The trip was a blast and we saw plenty of wildlife for the day including a crazy otter running across a rock scree. Would have been nicer if the river was a little higher but we still enjoyed ourselves regardless. The hike down to the river was pleasant and not to challenging. Glad the hike was in the shade and not in the sun. We will definitely return for a future trip. Glad to have been on the last Middle Box trip for the year! Thanks for the memories.

Our three days on the Chama River were fabulous, and our two campsites were fantastic. Our guides impressed us with their organized deployments of our rafts and efficiency in setting up culinary centers to enjoy amazing camp cuisine. The crew could not have been more excellent!

End of the season, full day Lower Gorge trip with 10, 12, 13 and 14 yr olds. River was low, so rapids were small, but that did not prevent our guides, Chas and Sydney, from giving us a great time. We had a few opportunities to get out and swim, they gave us bits of info about the river and the area as we floated. We recommend Far Flung, and our guides (request them by name!) to anyone. Lunch was delicious: sandwich bar (meats, cheeses, veggies, PB&J) salad, and drinks. There was even an appetizer of cream cheese with tiger sauce and crackers, and a fruit and veggie plate for us to enjoy while they prepared the rest of the spread.

We had a great time with Sydney on the Racecourse. The water was a bit low, which is to be expected this time of year, but she still made sure we had great fun. I will definitely recommend Far Flung (and Sydney) to others!

Chaze was our guide and he was great! We did the 1/2 day course and could have easily done the full day! We will certainly be going back and giving it a go!!
