Great experience with nice view along the crystal clear river. Guide on that day was Tom who was really professional and fun.

What an adventure! Grade 5 river rafting with really nice guides who explained a lot, not only about the rafting itself. I would do it again! It was totally worth it and so much fun! I felt safe the entire time.

A great experience from start to finish. The lodge location is stunning, the guides (Tom and Derek) were fun but professional. The rafting was just fantastic - the Rangitieki and surrounds are spectacular and the rapids were great fun. Friendly vibe and great food!

Very cool trip, gorgeous scenery. No rapids as gnarly as the 7M drop in Rotorua, but probably more fun overall. Included some cliff jumping. You finish right outside the River Valley lodge, very convenient. One of the highlights of NZ.
