Overview

We rarely take the rare opportunity to enjoy the beauty of our rivers for more than just a few hours.

Have you been thinking that it's high time you treated yourself?

How about a Luxury Adventure?

We have come to realise that many of our guests are looking for an experience that allows them to spend a few days on the river in a multi-day rafting trip.  That said, they are also looking for a higher level of comfort compared to your average camping trip.  Luckily, just downstream from the River Valley Lodge is the Tarata Fishway. This perfectly set up Fishing Lodge is the perfect place to spend your second night on the river.

After exploring an extraordinary section of the river, you will be able to spend the night in a comfortable bed. Sooth your muscles in luxurious hot tubs that overlook the river, enjoy a delicious meal and two relaxing yet exciting days on the river.  This is the perfect trip for those looking to escape from their daily routine.

Why Not Stay an Extra Night?

Once you reach the River Valley Lodge, you can choose to make your way home or you are welcome to spend an additional night.  The next morning, you will have the opportunity to join a Grade 5 Rafting Trip or enjoy a horseback riding trip for something a little different and the chance to view the Rangitikei River Canyon from another perspective.

Day 1River Valley Lodge - Ohutu Falls - Tarata Fishaway

Night Before:

When you arrive at the River Valley Lodge, you will be just in time to enjoy dinner the night before you river adventure is set to begin. 

Day 1:

The next morning, you will be kitted out and provided with all the necessary river gear.  You will then pack up your clothing and bid the civilised world farewell for now.  Enjoy the remainder of the day making your way downstream as you enjoy such sights as Ohutu Falls.  Stop for a picnic on the river bank and arrive between the mid to late afternoon at Tarata Fishaway.  What follows is up to you and you're not restricted to stick to this order:

Soothing hot showers, relaxing hot tub, delicious diner, a bottle of wine, socialising with fellow travellers and a cosy bed awaits.

Day 2Tarata Fishaway - Mokai Canyon - River Valley Lodge

The next morning, after a leisurely start, you will get back out on the river and continue discovering what lies ahead.

You will make your way through the dramatic Mokai Canyon and, as you do, take note of the set up for the Gravity Canyon Bungy, Giant Swing and Extreme Flying Fox.

If you are familiar with the Lord of the Rings trilogy, you may recognise parts of this canyon from the films.  We take a break on the riverbank for lunch and the trip will conclude in the mid afternoon.

This is where our shuttle vehicle will meet you and take you back the the River Valley Lodge.  Alternatively, you can choose to be met by a helicopter for a flight back to the lodge. This is at an additional cost.
