river rafting on Rangitikei

Any thoughts on good outfitters to raft the Rangitikei River? I see these 2 companies online,looks like the first is right on Highway 1, and the other is inland. www.mangaweka.co.nz or www.rivervalley.co.nz

Looking for a company that offers many options -- the college-age boys will likely want a different experience than 50-yr-old parents.

Thank you.

River Valley would be my choice. My brothers family have had some great times with this company. It's a family business offereing some great activities for all ages. They also have the Mokai Gravity Canyon which the boys might like to do.

mangaweka.co.nz has a wider range of options available to suit a group with different types of people in it. With different boats being available on each trip i.e. some can kayak and some can raft... all on some amazing pieces of river!
