    Queenstown Lord of the Rings Off-Road 4X4 Adventure from Queenstown

    Accessing Queenstown’s hidden scenic gems means leaving the highway and taking to the back roads to unveil a world you’d never know existed. Never was an area more tailor-made to make Tolkien’s fantasy vision a reality on the big screen. This Lord of the Rings tour will take you through numerous chapters from the trilogy’s and multiple other movies cinematic home, utilising off-road vehicles to their limits to reach the directors’ perfect spots. This tour is a favourite with visitors because over four hours you get to sample the varied beauty of areas like Skippers Canyon, Arrowtown and the Gibbston Valley. Our knowledgeable local guides have plenty of information on the movies as well as the area’s history. Even those who missed the movies will be spellbound by the scenery of the Wakatipu Basin.

    Tour Highlights include:
    • Lord of the Rings tour locations (White Mountains; Minas Tirith; Pillars of the Kings; GladdenFields; Ford of Bruinen; Warg attack; Exodus of Edoras)
    • Willow, Vertical Limits and The WaterHorse locations
    • Remarkables Mountains viewpoint
    • Arrowtown village;
    • Multiple river crossings on the Arrow River
    • And a short journey down Skippers Canyon.
    • Gold panning option available upon request

    Our driver Matt was fantastic! We did the LOTR tour and in addition to visiting filming sites, where Matt showed us clips to orient us to how the scenes were actually filmed, we also learned a lot about local history, the gold rush, the geography of the entire region, and flora
