Southern Lakes Sightseeing: Trails of Middle Earth

One of the first LOTR companies in New Zealand, we have amassed a wonderful selection of locations, sights and scenes to bring the movies to life for you. No other tour company can offer what you will discover and see on this tour so come with us as we whisk you away for a Middle-earth ...


What to bring:

  • A warm wind/rain proof jacket (in winter bring hats & gloves also)
  • Your camera & spare or fully charged batteries
  • Please wear sneakers or trainers
  • An average level of fitness is required
  • Please advise if you are a vegetarian


  • Emphasis of the tour is on the rare weapons and other memorabilia from the movies.
  • Spend time, over a hot drink and a bite to eat, reading the scripts and other paperwork from the making of the movies. Perhaps even check up on excerpts from the books.
  • Plenty of time to learn how to handle the weapons and costume items, learn their histories and take as many photos as you like. These weapons are very rare and the chances of holding them even more so.
