River Valley Lodge

266 Mangahoata Road

River Valley Lodge is New Zealand's original Adventure Lodge. It's beautiful riverside location is the perfect base from which one can raft through the canyons of the Rangitikei River, or horse trek over dramatic North Island hill country.

Cost: $34 - $185


Are you a person who values getting away from the tourist hubs?

Do you despair that everywhere you go becomes increasingly the same?

Then River Valley Lodge maybe for you, but it is not for everyone.

We are an Adventure Lodge. We highly value getting out on both the river and land, exploring, experiencing, normally by raft or horseback.

On the other hand, if being outside cell phone reception for more than a few minutes is a major issue, or where shopping is a an essential part of your day – then do not come to River Valley!

River Valley Lodge has accommodation choices from backpacker to comfortable riverside ensuited rooms. There is a restaurant and bar within the main Lodge.

We are 32kms from the nearest town, Taihape.
