Delve deep into Middle Earth on this tour of the stunning landscapes of Queenstown, Glenorchy and Paradise in New Zealand. Discover the mystical scenery of one of the world's most famous trilogies: The Lord of the Rings.
Lord of the Rings Tour Itinerary
The captivatingly beautiful countryside of New Zealand was the inspiration for Peter Jackson's vision of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. And not for nothing - the striking mountains, rolling hills and tranquil lakes of these Pacific islands inevitably come to mind when imagining Gandalf and Shadowfax galloping across mythical lands. After being picked up from your hotel in Queenstown, your adventure will begin, heading in the direction of Glenorchy, the filming location of a number of famous scenes.
Start your exploration of Middle Earth admiring the awe-inspiring landscapes from the scenic road that runs between Queenstown and Glenorchy. You'll have incomparable views of Lake Wakatipu and the north-western slopes of the imposing Mount Earnslaw, where the opening scene of The Two Towers was filmed.
Following in Jackson's footsteps, you'll discover the woodland valleys of Lothlorien, represented by Paradise Forest. Faithful fans of the legendary trilogy will remember the iconic scene of Boromir's death amongst these trees. Paradise was also featured in The Hobbit - can you remember what was filmed here?
Discover the small town of Glenorchy itself, getting to know this sleepy settlement whose past and present livelihoods are intrinsically linked to the incredible nature that surrounds it. You'll then make your way towards the mountains to explore further Lord of the Rings locations, including Diamond Lake, Dart River and the forests of Routeburn Track.
The unique natural beauty found throughout every corner of the island landscape will take your breath away, and the finishing touch on this incredible adventure will be a well-deserved break at Kinloch Lodge, one of New Zealand's most picturesque hotels.
After exploring Middle Earth and experiencing the magic of the iconic saga in real life, you'll return to Queenstown to be dropped off at your hotel.
