Big Bend National Park
Trip Overview
Nestled in the remote corner of southwest Texas lies a mystical compass point, where vast desert fringes 8,000-foot mountains, and bobcats roam. This is Big Bend National Park - a hidden gem, and one of the most remote parks in the continental United States.

A unique ecosystem here gives way to a sprawling desert landscape featuring rocky desert mountains, profound canyons, spiky desert flora & fauna, and the inspiring Rio Grande River. 

Here, at Big Bend, you’ll find some of the least photographed landscapes anywhere, yet too spectacular to be missed! Due to its location - Big Bend is over 300 miles away from the nearest city - visitation is extremely low. 

Let Backcountry Journey make this possible for you – you’re only job is to show up!

Join us on this six-day, lodge-based, photography trip to Big Bend National Park, in Southwest Texas, for an exquisite opportunity to photograph an off-the-beaten path spot that features some of the best desertscapes in the United States.

  • A Great Experience!

    What a great experience! The trip was well-organized from start to finish. Great photography locations from deep jungle to beach to river boat to night hikes. The schedule kept us busy but never hectic, and the accommodations were super comfortable. Shout out to our guide Ben - we saw so much wildlife! I'd highly recommend a trip with them.


  • In October I traveled with BCJ to Joshua Tree Natl Park for their night sky photography trip. This was my third trip with BCJ and I just reserved another trip. I keep coming back to this company because of the great experiences I'm having. I love the small groups and excellent guides. 


  • This was my first trip with Backcountry Journeys. It was excellent, and I have since booked two more trips. The itinerary, and the guides were excellent.
