About the vehicle

We use Jeep YJ Wranglers for all our 3-hour tours that have been specially designed for Far Flung. These “safari-style” vehicles have covered tops to protect against the sun and open sides for great viewing and picture taking.

Experience Iconic Big Bend Views First Hand

The Camp 360 Jeep tour is easily our most popular 3 hour tour, and for good reason! It delivers some of the best views in Big Bend; we’re talking full panoramic, 360° vistas – hence the name Camp 360! The tour has stood the test of time wowing countless visitors since 1998; think of it as a fun, educational, and incredibly scenic road trip suitable for all ages. A naturalist guide will accompany you throughout, pointing out unique desert fauna and ancient geological formations along the way. They’ll also take you on some short, easy walks to get a closer look at some special Big Bend points of interest. We’ll pack plenty of iced water to keep to cool and hydrated and use covered tops on our Jeeps to keep you shaded – just make sure you remember to bring your camera to capture those awesome desert views!

Should I tip the guide?

(+)

Many guests ask us whether tipping the guides is appropriate. If you believe the guide exceeded your service expectations, please feel free to leave a tip (10-15% of the trip price is normal). Tipping is by no means required.

What's your cancellation policy?

(+)

Jeep tours have a $10/person non-refundable deposit requirement with the balance due 48 hours prior to the trip departure date. Cancellations outside of 48 hours from departure forfeit the deposit amount. Cancellations (including no-shows) within 48 hours of the trip departure forfeit the entire cost of the trip. It is rare that Far Flung will cancel a tour, but in the event we do, all money (including deposits) will be refunded.

Will I be required to sign a waiver?

(+)

Trip participants must understand and appreciate that riding in an off road vehicle involves some risk. These risks include, but are not limited to:

  1. Forces of nature, including extreme heat, cold, hail, rain, and lightning
  2. Possible roll-over or loss of control of a Jeep driven by others related to excessive speed, rough, steep, or narrow trails, and collisions with other vehicles, boulders, vegetation, wild animals, livestock, or other man-made or natural objects
  3. Accident or illness without access to immediate evacuation or availability of medical supplies and the inadequacy of medical attention once provided

All participants will be required to sign a waiver before partaking in any Far Flung activity and must agree to abide by all rules related to off-road safety as outlined by Far Flung Outdoor Center and/or its guide staff.
