  • River Kayaking was amazing. The guides were great and they made everything easy. The kayaking was fun and secluded. We did the 8am-12noon trip and loved it. Well worth it.  more »

  • The ATV tour with Randy was so much fun. We got to see an old mine on our tour because Randy knew we were interested in the old mines. We also got to see pictographs from so many years back. This...  more »
  • The staff here is great. They really know the area and are eager to answer any questions you may have. The villas are nice and clean. We had a very comfortable stay here.
  • These guys took care of my bachelor party. We did a two day river trip by canoe and also used the casitas pre trip. Reid, Neil, and Jeremy were excellent guides. We were all well fed and taught the basics of canoeing. We also really enjoyed the day hikes and hearing about the history of the canyon. Every one in my group has told me how great of a time it was. We’ll be back for another guided tour down the road.
  • Did an ATV ride (Guide: Devo) and booked guide (Chris) for the Lost Mine Trail tour (used our own car). Both guides were very helpful, fun, and informative. Told us about the area, what things we needed for the tour, and amenable to changes based on our group. Highly recommend using the group again!
  • Participated in half day canoeing. Super staff, great time! No matter your experience with canoeing, this is great place.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the casitas at Far Flung. I selected this location because it is close to the Big Bend National Park and the excursions offered by them are really well done. Most of the outings leave right from the main building and they provide the transportation to and from the area. Each outing is conducted by local guides. We felt safe knowing that they're familiar with the river, the desert and the potential dangers each one holds. The guides told interesting stories about desert life, the flora and fauna we encountered and imparted fascinating details for the duration of our outing. The accommodations were clean, well built and just the right amount of rustic. I've included some detailed pictures here, that should give you an idea of the general set-up. The desert decor touches were especially well done. One other noteworthy matter; remember that Big Bend is in the desert, so desert rules apply. Water conservation is very important, so we had to adjust our thinking a bit. Showers and teeth brushing were kept brief. The casitas, by the way, are made with cedar and smell spectacular inside. Definitely a trip we'll be making again!
