Wellington Valley Movie Tour
Join us on a journey to Middle-Earth with the Wellington Valley Movie Tour, exploring the most amazing filming locations featured in the movies such as the gardens of Isengard and Rivendell.
The Wellington Valley Movie Tour promises a fantastic experience for fans of the movies and guests looking for an enjoyable and memorable day out. Our Lord of the Rings guides have extensive knowledge about the movies and the filming locations and are on-hand to answer any questions guests have during the tour. The tour will suit fans of the movies as well as those simply looking to escape Wellington City for an adventure.
A minimum of 2 persons are required for this tour to run.
The tour heads out of Wellington City towards the Wellington valleys to explore other Lord of the Rings filming locations. Experience the scenes along the Hutt River featured in the movies as the location for the Great River Anduin, moving towards Amon Hen.
The next stop of the tour will be a visit to the iconic Gardens of Isengard before embarking along Highway 2 to Kaitoke Regional Park. Kaitoke was the filming location featuring a breathtaking rain forest which we grew to know in the movies as Rivendell.
At this point of the afternoon, we provide a complimentary lunch fit for a hobbit. After your energy is replenished, we embark along the routes that Arwen and Elrond walked in the Lord of the Rings movies. After Rivendell, we cross the swing-bridge to see the massive 1200-year-old Rata or find the Silver Fern – NZ’s symbol.
The Wellington Valley Movie Tour draws to a close when you are transported back to your pickup location, providing one last opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the filming locations. As you head back to the city, you will also get a fantastic viewpoint of Helm’s Deep and Minas Tirith as you pass the quarry where the scenes filmed. Ensure you have your camera at the ready, as this will be your final chance to take some fantastic photos before the tour ends.
