From Queenstown: Lord Of The Rings Tour to Glenorchy

1. From Queenstown: Lord Of The Rings Tour to Glenorchy

Enjoy a small-group tour of the most iconic Lord of the Rings filming locations in New Zealand, specially designed for fans of the films. Within minutes of leaving Queenstown, reach the Glenorchy Road, which follows the edges of the Great Lake Wakatipu, and has been voted  one of the top 10 drives in the world. Admire snowcapped mountains that arise around every corner of the journey. Your first stop will be the 12 Mile Delta. Here, enjoy a short nature walk over the 12 Mile canyon footbridge and spot trout and salmon in the crystal-clear water below. Learn about the local flora and fauna and visit the locations, where scenes from the films were shot. Next, refuel with a delicious morning or afternoon tea picnic near the famous Glenorchy red shed and wharf. Once you have eaten enough to satisfy a Hobbit, adventure further into the World Heritage Mt. Aspiring National Park, home of Lothlorien Forest, where you will have the opportunity to snap some photographs dressed as your favorite Lord of the Rings character with replica swords from the trilogy. Next, head up the Dart Valley through "Paradise" to Isengard for some time to enjoy this amazing location in this spectacular glacier-carved valley. Stories and behind-the-scenes secrets will be shared by your passionate local guides on the way back to Queenstown.

What people are saying about Central Otago

Tour was a little pricey but worth it for fans of Lord Of The Rings. One will have better appreciation of tour if the trilogy was reviewed before the trip to Queenstown. Destinations were picturesque. I went on a rainy day but umbrellas were conveniently provided. Ben, the tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the destinations. The activity when participants get to wear costumes and pose for pictures was fun but the costumes were a bit stinky and probably would need more frequent washing/cleaning. The snack served in the Glenorchy shack was yummy and was perfect with hot tea.

What a perfect tour. Joel was so relaxed, funny and knowledgeable and very importantly on these roads, also a very safe driver!! We had amazing weather which made the locations just absolutely stunning to see, and the other guests on the tour were fun too! Could not get any better!

We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide, Joel, was friendly and funny. It was informative and complete with visual aids from the movie. And we were allowed to go where other tour companies weren't allowed to go, which was a plus. Highly recommend.

Got to discover so many beautiful places and learn so much about LOTR, highly recommend! Guide was loaded with information and had coffee, tea and biscuits for us on a break was such a great experience!

beautiful scenery... and Joel has plenty of anecdotal banter.
