New Zealand is home to a rich variety of extreme sports; the kiwi bird; a fascinating Maori culture and the legendary Fergburger of Queenstown, but it is perhaps best-known around the world for being the main filming location of Peter Jackson’s epic Lord of the Rings trilogy. Take this in-depth tour of Wellington with a professional and highly knowledgeable guide to discover the secrets of Middle Earth, and Weta Studios, the company that made these all-conquering blockbusters possible.
Convenient coach pick-ups from Wellington hotels are available, following which you’ll visit key filming locations around the city, as well as seeing some epic views of the harbour from Mt. Victoria, and driving through lush rainforest. Learn fascinating facts and stories from the films, and then visit the studios where the magic unfolded, to see how character, costume and set design came together, secrets of SFX and much more beyond. For the consummate LotR fan, this is the ultimate Wellington gift experience.
