Trip Info

See the LOTR film locations on this fascinating tour in Wellington. Head for the hills and admire the view from Mount Victoria before arriving at our first stop, the ‘Outer Shire’. Then it’s onto the Weta Cave in Miramar where you will tour the museum, before viewing a short documentary showing the film making exploits of Peter Jackson and his remarkable team. This is followed up with a fascinating ‘Window into the Workshop” exhibition, showing film props and weaponry with the artists themselves describing how the artefacts were created. You will gain interesting insights into the making of the movies, weapons, and props.

We lunch locally (price included) then head north into the Hutt Valley following the River Anduin and taking in the sights of Helms Deep, before stopping at the Gardens of Isengard. The final destination is Rivendell and the Legolas tree before returning to Wellywood.

This is the perfect tour for the LOTR fan, or someone just looking for some truly amazing and beautiful scenery in New Zealand.

Your adventure awaits!
