About us

A family run business now into its 3rd generation of raft guides, River Valley started as a rafting company on a family farm, in the back blocks of Taihape. With one of the world's top half day Grade 5 rafting trips literally on the doorstep, it was a natural progression. A horse trekking stables was added over time, and it is these two adventurous activities, rafting the beautiful Rangitikei River, and exploring the magnificent hill country which is at core of River Valley. The Lodge caters for a mix of clientele, with an accommodation mix from riverside camping, to bunk rooms, to deluxe en-suited riverside suites. The Lodge restaurant and cafe serves a selection of fresh farm-to-table food, much not only prepared on site, but also grown in the extensive vegetable gardens. If shopping and cell phone reception are critical to your daily existence, then River Valley is certainly not the place for you.

Wonderful wonderful time away

Attended a weekend event at River Valley Lodge, arrived after dark Friday night to the lovely relaxing sounds of the river nearby and an amazingly delicious meal with lots of beautiful salads and curries to choose from. The next night's dinner was also delicious as was lunch. Slept wonderfully in such a peaceful location with the ruru calling and the river murmuring outside. Wonderful hosts - thank you River Valley Lodge.

warm welcome on a cold weekend

We had a family birthday - weekend away and were delighted at the food, accommodation, friendly and helpful staff and the gorgeous setting. Birds, waterfall and river - and a couple of huge cherry trees in blossom.

Amazing food and rafting!

My partner and I attended a wedding at the lodge. We had a great day and night, with an excellent dinner and breakfast the next day. The following day we went rafting - such a great day of fun. The equipment kept us warm even on a cold winter raft trip. Beautiful location. Great people.

So good we stayed another day.

My visit to River Valley was a surprise from my lovely husband of 43 years. He had been to River Valley with work mates 10 years previously and had often said how good it was. Good, is an understatement because the whole experience is extremely good. The commitment to making you feel really welcome comes from the whole family from the minute you drive in. The Riverside room was so comfortable, especially the heated floor in the bathroom. The food was extremely good and the fresh produce a real treat. Everything home made down to the spicey sauces. Yum. Sitting around the big fire pit with a wine was very easy to get used to. Then came the grade 5 rafting. What an exciting few hours, and it was a privilage to go down that beautiful river. Next time I would like to do the Grade 3 downstream, apparently its extremely good. If you just want to be lazy, the petanque and outdoor chess right beside the river is very relaxing. River Valley Lodge is a tribute to the whole family who own and run this very special piece of NZ. …
