Start your Lord of the Rings-themed experience with a pickup from select Queenstown hotels or from the city center. You can choose between one of two departure times, leaving in either the morning or afternoon.
During the course of your trip you’ll visit a variety of fictional Lord of the Rings story sites like Amon Hen, Ithilien, The Lothlorien Forest, and Isengard, each of which is set amidst the stunning scenery of New Zealand’s South Island. Best of all, you’ll get the inside scoop on anecdotes from the film production from your guides, who will share behind-the-scenes gossip about the actors, and divulge little-known details about decisions made by film director Peter Jackson.
Continue your Hobbit-themed journey along one of New Zealand’s most scenic stretches of highway running between Queenstown and Glenorchy. Your guides will ensure there are plenty of stops for those who want to take pictures.
Finish your Lord of the Rings adventure by enjoying an included picnic of sandwiches, coffee, tea, and other refreshments served against the backdrop of Mount Aspiring National Heritage Park. Those with special dietary requirements can request gluten-free and vegetarian options at the time of booking.
You’ll receive a drop-off back at selected Queenstown hotels, or the town’s center, at the end of your excursion.
