We had an amazing time at The River Lodge, it was also were we got engaged!! After spending a few days relaxing at the chalet looking out to Mt Ruapehu, fly-fishing the excellent trout river running through the lodge, mountain bike trekking the old coach railway and strolling through the beautiful town of Ohakune. on our last morning,much to my surprise my now fiancée had arranged a helicopter to land at the lodge!! much planning was involved which Gayle and Denton were more than happy to help and nothing was ever too much to ask.
You really will not find nicer hosts, beautiful accommodation and excellent breakfast.
Memories that will last a life time!!
