All the family at home? Looking for things to do with the kids?

Have you been looking for a first time family adventure experience that is safe, scenic and fun?

Have You Ever Thought that a Day on a River Could be a Fun Adventure?

Families (and friends!) love the Scenic section of the Rangitikei River, downstream from River Valley Lodge.

A Fun Two Day Activity and Adventure Holiday

This type of short holiday package is ideal for a weekend, or just a couple of fun filled days if you are travelling.

An Adventure Break away to recharge the soul, lift the spirits, have some fun, breath some fresh air, and have a chance to laugh and smile.


  • Arrive anytime after 3 pm on the first day, check in to your accommodation in our Deluxe Family room.
  • Enjoy a delicious, home cooked, 2 course dinner in the lodge.
  • On the second day, have breakfast in the main Lodge to fuel up for your rafting adventure.  Your guide will meet you to give you your gear and go over what to expect for the rest of the day.
  • Then, enjoy a full day of rafting on a beautiful scenic section of the Rangitikei River.  You will stop by the side of the river for a picnic lunch.
  • Arrive back at the lodge around 3-4pm and relax before it’s time for dinner.  Enjoy a swim in the river, or use the spa and sauna.
  • Enjoy another 2 course dinner in the Lodge.  All our food is made with free range, organic meat and fresh vegetables from our on-site gardens.
  • The next morning head home around 10am, or opt to stay for longer to really enjoy the destination and the other things to do.

Testimonials 'n Reviews

“We, a group of friends and two 10 years old girls, spent two nights at River Valley Lodge and booked the family rafting tour (Grade 2).  This is what my daughter thinks about our trip: “The rooms were very cozy and clean and we loved the floor heating in the bathroom! The rafting was very fun and my best friend and me felt safe the whole time. Thanks a lot to Justin, who was very friendly and an awesome guide. He explained everything very clearly and was interested in getting to know us. He also had a great sense of humour and every time my best friend and me jumped in the river he always checked it was safe to do so. Derek, the guide in the other boat was cheeky in a good way and made me laugh a lot.”  Not a lot to add on- we all had a great time, two of our friends even booked the Grade 5 rafting tour the next day and loved it.  River Valley Lodge is such a lovely and peaceful place to stay- a great spot to relax from work.  The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and we will come back for sure!”
