About

River Valley offers New Zealand's premier half day grade 5 white-water rafting trip as well as relaxing grade 2 scenic rafting trips on the Rangitikei River. The Rangitikei is one of the most beautiful rafting rivers in New Zealand.

Grade 5 trips are of approximately 3 hours duration, and 11 kms in length. Grade 5 trips depart twice daily from River Valley Lodge, ending right outside the front door. Grade 2 trips are an all day affair, with a picnic lunch on the river. The scenery on both trips is spectacular.

If you want a longer river experience, then our overnight or 4 day headwaters trips may be what you are looking for. Our experience spans decades, with three generations of river guides within the family (one now retired).
