The expertise, knowledge and insights accumulated since 1982 over three generations of guides, will ensure that there is just the right adventure for you.
River Valley is not all about adventure however. With the addition of the River Valley Spa, some indulgence in the way of massge and yoga is also on the cards.
River Valley is unique in this combination of family, multi generations, location, and great things to see and do.
Each bathroom is tiled in a own distinctive pattern reflecting the local environment. All bathrooms have under floor heating. Each room has a king size bed tea and coffee making facilities.Two of these rooms have an extra single bed meaning the room can also be used a treble.
We also have a family size ensuite room, perfect for families of up to six!All our guest rooms with private bathrooms (ensuited), are within our wireless hotspot range.We are in an area that does not have cellphone coverage, ensuring a strong dose of peace and quiet.
Over the summer BBQs are themed based around fresh salads from the Lodge gardens and locally sourced meat.
Our cooks certainly know how to prepare extremely delicious desserts. Make sure to check out the dessert menu board, and prepare to indulge.
The Fulcrum Pit Bar:Some great stories get told here. After a hard days adventuring, or an even harder one relaxing, this is the place to settle down for a couple of "quiet" ones. An extensive range of beers, wines and spirits are carried. Check the "Shooter Board" for daily specials.
River Valley Spa:Our spa pool overlooks the river, set amongst native beech trees. This could be the perfect place to start. Spa pools unlike many of the other River Valley Spa services are all about leisure and relaxation.
Alternatively you could let tension melt away in our JUMBO Scandanavian sauna. This wood fired sauna is the traditional deal. With room for up to 6 people and a wood fired stove, this is just the place to sweat out a few toxins while socialising with friends or family. Very much a social event.
For more information on traditional saunas, click here.For the ultimate detox you could choose the Far infra-red Sauna, medically approved approach to more efficient sauna. For more information on infra-red Saunas, click here.
Facilities are available for smaller groups up to 14 for conference or retreat purposes. Conference or retreat facilities are available from early May to mid October. Our meeting room is situated in a beautiful setting overlooking the river at the water’s edge.
If your group has specialist requirements, please contact us so we can put a package together that meets your specific needs. To break up your sessions consider one of the activities that we have on offer. These can range from a simple game of golf, to a Grade 5 rafting trip, to an interpretive bush walk. These activities can be structured to get a Team Building benefit from them.
Internet facilities are available if required.
If you are traveling North, use the Gretna Hotel in Taihape as your starting point, the 32km drive will last around 35 minutes after taking you through some of New Zealand's finest and most picturesque hill country. Please follow the River Valley, yellow finger signposts.
After turning off State Highway 1, you will cross two bridges coming from Waiouru, and three bridges coming from Taihape. The last 5km's are gravel and take you to the Lodge at the end of the road.
