Glenorchy & Paradise | Full day

Full day Glenorchy - Paradise - Lord of the Rings location tour - all charter based in very comfortable off road vehicles.
Being a private charter this tour can focus on what you want, from Lord of the Rings to history, geology, to photography - its your trip, you decide. Our experience in the local film industry, comfortable vehicles, extensive land access and comprehensive local knowledge combine to offer fans of Middle Earth the opportunity to take a memorable journey and to live, breathe and experience the magic of the LOTR locations.

This tour includes everything from the half day tour, plus options including staying in Glenorchy for the full day, or back to the Queenstown basin for either scenes on the Arrow River, Kawarau River and The Remarkables Mountains, or a trip into remote Skippers Canyon for a major scene most rings fans miss out on, or a 1.5 hour walk around a beautiful alpine lake. Your trip, you decide.
