You have read about it in the trilogy, and seen it on screen.

You have read about it in the trilogy, and seen it on screen. Now experience the ethereal world of Middle Earth on The Lord of the Rings tour from Wellington. Your knowledgeable guides will fill you up on trivia and behind-the-scenes tidbits.

Explore the city locations of Mount Victoria and continue into the Green Belt and Outer Shire where forest scenes in the movies were shot, including Shortcut to Mushrooms, Get off the Road, Race to the Ferry, Black Riders, and Dunharrow Plateau. Drive half an hour north to see other filming locations such as the Hutt river between Moonshine and Totara Park which was used as the Great River Anduin, the Hutt Valley, and Harcourt Park which became the Gardens of Isengard where the Orcs felled the trees for Saruman’s forge. On the Western Hutt Road you will pass by Dry Creek Quarry, a mining complex at the bottom of Haywards Hill, which was used for the huge fortress city of Minas Tirith in Gondor and Helm’s Deep in Rohan.

Visit the Kaitoke Regional Park, a 1000 year old native rainforest on the foothills of the Tararua Ranges which was the setting for Rivendell. Further along, see the pristine Fernside Lake, which was used during filming as part of Lothlorien and the Gladden fields. See the lakeside spot where Smeagol and Deagol fought for the ring, and the white bridge that was transformed into the Lothlorien bridge.

Stop by at 'Wellywood' where The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies were produced. Delve into the film industry and production techniques at the highly acclaimed Weta Studios.
