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 bunk rooms, to campsites through to deluxe Riverside Suites perfect for a romantic weekend away.

We highly value getting out on both the river and land, exploring, experiencing, reconnecting with nature, normally by raft or horseback. The Rangitikei River offers some of the best rafting in New Zealand, and the world.

If being within cell phone reception or shopping is an essential part of your day then River Valley is not for you.
