Water levels have been rising these last few days, so currently this trip is traveling by rafts.
Enjoy Far Flung's 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.
For those with younger children (6 and over), 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!
