If you're an avid fan of the J.R.R. Tolkein series then make the most of this Lord of the Rings Tour from Wellington. Be reminded of the most symbolic scenes from the trilogy. 

Lord of the Rings Tour from Wellington

We'll pick you up from your hotel between 8:30 and 9 am. From here, we'll be ready to start the tour around the famous Lord of the Rings scenes.

The first stop the minibus will take us to is Mount Victoria. Here we'll admire the unique views of Wellington and discover the importance of the J.R.R. Tolkien in the city. You'll walk around the landscapes that Peter Jackson selected for the trilogy.

We'll stop at various locations to recreate some of the important scenes that every follower of Middle-earth will remember, such as the place where the Hobbits, led by Frodo Baggins, hid from the Nazgûls.

The tour will continue by visiting The Weta Cave studios, the home of the film industry in Wellington. Next, we'll explore the studios to learn about the secrets behind the films, such as the effects that bring iconic characters such as Gollum and the Orcs of Moria to life.

After leaving the studios we'll have a delicious lunch at a local cafe and then continue the route to see the Hutt River, known for being the Great Anduin River along which the Ring Community travelled to Amon Hen. 

The tour will end by walking the paths that Elrond and Arwen travelled along with Aragorn, Legolas or Gimli. We'll arrive back in Wellington between 4:30 and 5 pm.

At the time of booking, you can book the half-day tour of the Lord of the Rings scenes. In this case, the tour will last four hours and you can do so at 8:30 am or 1:30 pm.
