GLENORCHY - PARADISE  

PASSENGER TOUR

 

ADVENTURE DESCRIPTION

 

Being a private charter this tour can focus on what you want, from Lord of the Rings to history, geology, to photography - its your trip, you decide. Our experience in the local film industry, comfortable vehicles, extensive land access and comprehensive local knowledge combine to offer fans of Middle Earth the opportunity to take a memorable journey and to live, breathe and experience the magic of the LOTR locations.

 

If you are a Rings fan, we offer a half and full day Lord of the Rings location tour - all charter based in very comfortable off road vehicles.

Having lived and worked in the Queenstown region for the last 27 years, we have an intimate knowledge of the absolute best LOTR film locations.

Glenorchy and surrounds

 

On a fine day this Lord of the Rings tour is hard to beat. The Glenorchy Road is one of the most beautiful roads in New Zealand with unsurpassed scenery and magnificent backdrops. With this tour, we head to the top of Lake Wakatipu to explore the township of Glenorchy and LOTR locations in the Paradise Valley,  Dart River and Mt Aspiring National Park. Apart from Lord of the Rings, film locations of other productions are also visited.
