3 and 4 Day Float Trips

So here you are on the Internet, searching for that perfect three to four day getaway.  You've looked at cruises.  Nice, but a little too much humanity in one place.  DisneyWorld.  Great fun, but you've been there, done that.

You want something where very few folks ever go.  Something a little on the wild side.  Something that brings you back to basics - no cell phones, iPads, traffic or lots of people. Something that sort of tests you.

Wait now. You don't want it that rough.  A glass of wine on a sandy river beach watching the sunset.  Or maybe a nice walk to an overlook where you gaze out at thousands of square miles of isolation.  The cooking, cleaning and hauling done by someone else.  Yes, that's it!

Join Far Flung - where wild meets comfortable. Three or four days of solitude in the canyons of the Rio Grande in Big Bend National Park.  Float, paddle, swim, hike, explore, relax, learn and share memories with friends and family.

Since our river flows are largely regulated by seasonal rainfall and dam releases from Mexico, our ability to predict water levels too far in advance is limited.   When planning your multi-day trip on the Rio Grande, please understand that the trip may be conducted by canoe or raft.
