All the family at home? Looking for things to do with the kids?

Have you been looking for a first time family adventure experience that is safe, scenic and fun?

Have You Ever Thought that a Rafting Trip could be a Fun Family Adventure?

Families love rafting the Scenic section of the Rangitikei River, downstream from River Valley Lodge.

Why Do They Love It?

Not only had they been looking for things to do with kids, but they had also been looking for somewhere for their family to have their first river rafting experience.

They wanted a trip that was safe, scenic, interesting, and FUN!

With over 30 Grade 2(easy) rapids, a side hike to a spectacular waterfall (weather dependent), the 13 km scenic section of the Rangitikei River downstream from River Valley Lodge was just what they were looking for.

Your Family could also Experience a Fantastic Fun day on the River

Our guides will ensure that you are equipped with appropriate equipment, both to keep you warm, and to keep you safe.

Depending on the day this could include, wetsuits or specially designed bib style splash pants, neoprene boots and lifejackets. Helmets are always worn.

We realise that with a variety of ages, not everybody wants to sit in the raft with Mum and Dad.

This is the Time for Inflatable Kayaks

This is the situation where we put on some inflatable kayaks. These safe, easy to manoeuvre boats, are a heap of fun and will get young teens (and adults) smiling from ear to ear as they run some of the easy rapids

A Stunning Canyon with a Picnic Lunch

On the way down, immense cliffs cradle the river canyon. It is in one of these sections that we stop and have a picnic lunch. From there it is a relaxing float out to the take out, followed by a scenic drive back to River Valley Lodge.

How Much Time to Allow, and When to Do It

Total time on the river depends on flow, but is generally 3 and a half to 4 hours, however allow a full day, with a meeting time of 9.30am at River Valley Lodge.

This is a seasonal adventure, from 1st October to 30th April.

For family groups, when booking, we will need to know the age of your children (minimum age is 5 years).

What if You Just Want a Nice day on the River, Outside of a Family Group?

This trip can also be run as a gentle float trip with oared rafts, especially suitable for older less active participants.

If you are part of a group who would like a very relaxed experience such as one that is provided by oared rafts, please contact us so we can make sure that is the type of experience you will get.
