Are you a person who values getting away from the tourist hubs?

Tucked away at the base of the Ruahine Ranges and Mt. Aorangi, on the banks of the Rangitikei River, River Valley Lodge is the perfect escape from the stress of every day life.

We have a range of accommodation options from backpacker style bunk rooms, to campsites through to deluxe Riverside Suites perfect for a romantic weekend away.

We are an Adventure Lodge. We highly value getting out on both the river and land, exploring, experiencing, normally by raft or horseback. If being within cell phone reception or shopping is an essential part of your day then River Valley is not for you.
