Safari of the Scenes: Lord Of The Rings

The perfect tour for those that want the thrills of an off-road adventure but also want to discover exciting Lord of the Rings filming locations.

A Queenstown adventure safari packed with breathtaking Lord Of The Rings filming locations and thrilling 4WD action.

The Queenstown tour takes you to see The Remarkables, which were used as various mountains throughout the trilogy, such as the Misty Mountains. Travelling part way up Queenstown hill, you get a bird's-eye view onto Deer Park Heights, which was used for the refugees of Rohan and the Battle of the Wargs scenes.

Travelling from The Queenstown hill viewpoint, we head to the Kawarau Gorge, where the filming took place for the Argonath, or Pillars of the Kings. Leaving the Kawarau Gorge, the trip heads to Arrowtown, where the loss of The One Ring at Gladden Fields was shot.

Near Arrowtown, you will experience a true off-road adventure. Following a historic gold mining road up the Arrow River, you will cross the river many times to get to the Ford of Bruinen. At this point, you can indulge in morning or afternoon tea, and try your hand at a spot of gold panning.

From Arrowtown, you will travel to the entrance of Skippers Canyon, where you will be offered spectacular panoramic views of Queenstown and into Skippers Canyon.
