About Rangitata Rafts Lodge

We've got a backpacker style lodge in the middle of a back country sheep & beef station. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax among some of New Zealand's best scenery this is the place. We are located 10 minutes from Peel Forest and great hiking trails. The lodge can accommodate up to 35 people in one night. We have 4 dorm rooms and 2 double rooms. The full kitchen and living/entertainment areas are communal. There are separate men's and women's toilets with showers in each. We have many games and dvds available for rainy days and nights. Transport to/from nearby ski fields can be arranged at an extra cost. We suggest you bring breakfast, lunch, and dinner groceries along since we are a wee ways away from the nearest store. We provide a free coffee, tea, milk and sugar. 10 minutes down the road in Peel Forest is a wonderful cafe/pub along with many hiking trails. We are also located 30 minutes from the town of Geraldine and 45 minutes from Methven.


$400 per night gets you the entire lodge for groups of up to 10 people. $30 per person extra over 10 people. Linen is provided.
