As a social club we always try and do something different for our trips. We'd often talked about white water rafting and thought 'bugger it' we'll do it. What a good decision that was, we took 23 people and although not everyone participated in all the activities there wasn't one of us that didn't enjoy the weekend. We purchased a group package that included Saturday: Accommodation, Rafting, Dinner. Sunday: Breakfast, Archery, Pistol shooting, Claybird shooting, Paintball and Lunch.
Thank you to Doug, Gemma, Dion, Dano, Daniel and Dave, you guys made the weekend for us. We found you all very approachable and friendly, the facilities are not 5 star but they were clean and yes the accommodation is basic and it was exactly what we were expecting. I fully recommend Mountain Valley to all those who are thinking of going to find a piece of paradise.
An awesome weekend in a stunning setting with a group of like minded people out for a bit of adventure.
