River rafting is definitely now part of our business agenda.
Even though we weren’t too sure about combining a business meeting with an adventure. The team loved it – it was a blast!
After the river rafting the meeting was positive and high energy with great results. One of our team couldn’t do the rafting and it was great that she could have a relaxing massage instead.
We will certainly be taking other business teams to River Valley, including over nights stays for longer meetings. River rafting is definitely now part of our business agenda.

River Valley location – absolutely stunning, and well off the main road
Lack of cell phone coverage was a real bonus. I have participated in activities in the past where people found it difficult to switch off. Here there was no excuse. The team relaxed and got on with the job of having fun, participating in activities and working through our issues
The River Valley team – they were great. They inspired confidence in the rafting but also made sure it didn’t seem routine. Great humour, professionalism and fun people to share a drink with afterwards in the bar
Accommodation and facilities – again these were above expectation. Great, warm rooms and an informal, communal bar and dining area where everyone had a beer (or 3) and compared stories. Also, a great meeting room with a breathtaking view of the river.

A Grade 5 Rafting trip with River ValleyHi Brian
I am very happy with the results achieved during our stay. The remoteness of the venue meant the team put aside other considerations and fully concentrated on the conference.
What was the biggest obstacle that would have prevented you from visiting River Valley (or doing an activity)?
Location, obviously the location is amazing at river valley. The remoteness was a barrier we had to overcome
What did you find as a result of visiting here (or taking part in an activity)?
The rafting provided a different challenge to the team. I am convinced we achieved the level of engagement we were seeking from this event. It was important to me that we took the team out of their comfort zone in a safe and challenging manner.
What specific feature did you like most?
We were able to assume the full concentration of the team for the entire period. No cell phone interruption and no other disruption during our entire time.
Would you recommend River Valley, or that particular activity, and why?
Yes. Fantastic service and venue. It has been a enjoyable experience throughout.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
