Lord of the Rings Glenorchy Tour

The tar-sealed road clings to the lakeshore for 45 fleet-footed kilometres to allow 4WDs to find the gateway to deepest Lord of the Rings tour country.

The glacial lakes, ancient forests and neck-stretching peaks of the film trilogy are your domain for a day in the minds and vision of Jackson and Tolkien alike bringing the Lord of the Rings to life with Queenstown and New Zealand as a backdrop.

Explore this stunning region with one of our local guides, culminating with lunch in Paradise.

Highlights of the tour include:

Don’t just take our word for it, Sue from Pennsylvania had this to say on Tripadvisor:

“My sides hurt from laughing (at the great humor of our guide Dell) and my neck hurts from craning to see all the beautiful sights. Hotel pick up and drive up to Glenorchy and past to see many sights with Dell pointing out LOTR sites including Isengard and Lothlorien forest. Included a bathroom stop in Glenorchy and hot beverage and biscuit on the Dart riverside. Highly recommend this tour, especially if you have any familiarity with the LOTR movies.”
