River Valley Rafting

Trips vary from half a day to 4 days

River Valley Rafting

The Rangitikei River, home to one of the world's top half day Grade 5 rafting trips. However that is not all. Enjoy scenic float trips through the beautiful Rangitikei River canyon, plus overnight or longer trips.

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).

Minimum age depends on the trip. Scenic and family rafting trips - it is 5 years. Grade 5 and Ngaruroro it is 13 years. See our website for details.
