This Lord of the Rings tour is a full day and our most popular tour, it visits all of the filming locations for Rivendell where Frodo recovered from his knife attack; the Auduin River where Aragorn was washed ashore after the attack of the Wargs; the Gardens of Isengard, the sight of the Orcs felling trees and where Gandalf rode to see Saruman; go to the Mount Victoria lookout and Hobbiton Woods where you can race the Buckleberry Ferry and 'Get off the Road"; Buckland Forest where the Hobbits hid from Nazgul/Black Riders and where they found the mushrooms on the Road; Dunharrow Rohirrim encampment; visit the quarry for the filming of Helms Deep and the fortified ravine in Rohan and Minas Tirith.
You will visit Lothlorien (the White Bridge is there and a great photo opportunity) and Beside the Gladden Fields where Smeagol fought with Deagol. Both locations are situated at the elegant and beautiful Fernside Lodge in the Wairarapa. You will be served a gourmet picnic lunch at the White Bridge of Lothlorien - one of the few remaining structures used in the filming. This tour also visits the location of Bree, and the district of Miramar. Miramar is production central and the home of Peter Jackson and many of the cast and crew. You will also visit the Weta Cave for unique souvenirs and an exclusive behind the scenes at Weta Workshop.
