Multi-Day River Holidays | River Valley Rafting 2020-05-22T03:27:31+00:00

Soak up all the magic of the Rangitikei. Whanganui and Ngaruroro Rivers as you experience breath taking scenery only seen from the water.

Here at River Valley exploring rivers is our passion. Each river has its own character and a multi-day river rafting adventure with River Valley offers a rare opportunity to gain in-depth insight into these magnificent rivers as you experience some of the most beautiful scenery New Zealand has to offer.

We’ve been guiding these waters for over 3 generations and have a deep rooted connection with the river. It is this connection, passion and wealth of local knowledge that we believe makes a River Valley rafting trip like no other.
