Enjoy Far Flung's four hour adventure tour on the Rio Grande and still have time in the day for other activities! For example, many of our summer guests take a morning float and are back by lunch to avoid the afternoon heat. Or, like our spring and winter guests, they sleep in, have a leisurely breakfast and enjoy the half-day float during the warmest part of the day.
For those with younger children (under 8), our half-day adventure is just right - not too long, not too short and our guides will entrall them with stories of the wild outdoors!
