What To Expect

Journey into the heart of Middle Earth and visit the cinescapes from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Choose from morning or afternoon tours of the Glenorchy or Wakatipu Basin, both of which feature a variety of landscapes from the movies. A 4WD vehicle will pick you up from your Queenstown accommodation and then you’ll begin your off-road adventure to iconic LOTR locations such as Isengard, the 12 mile Delta, the Misty Mountains, the Pillars of the Kings, and more! Adventurers on the Wakatipu Basin tour will also have the chance to visit an old mining town to try their hand at gold panning. There will also be a tea break during the tours so you can get out and enjoy the scenery while having a snack. Your driver will also provide commentary on many of the locations and will drop you back off at your hotel at the end of the tour.

    Excellent trip with lots of background information and interesting stories. Our guide knew everything about LOTR and in addition told us about the Wolferine scenes produced here as well. worth it.

    A lovely trip. I'm not a huge LOTR fan but the views made this tour worth it. And the LOTR tidbits are fun as well.

    This trip was amazing. The places where Lord of the Rings was made are beautiful and our guide was absolutely cool. I am not native speaker, my English is not so good as I want, but I perfectly understood everything. I can only recommend this trip with you :)
