Description

Enjoy getting off the beaten track with this exciting off road 4x4 tour in Glenorchy!
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. As a local family owned and operated business, with years of local knowledge, our Off Road 4x4 guides know how to navigate the long-forgotten adventure trails to amazing gold rush settlements and stunning scenery now forever captured on film by Lord of the Rings.

The tour begins with a breath-taking journey along the shores of Lake Wakatipu. This is one of New Zealand’s most famous scenic road journeys with spectacular views around each bend. After passing through the sleepy township of Glenorchy at the base of the lake we enter the awe inspiring Mt Aspiring World Heritage area where Middle Earth comes to life. You will literally arrive in Paradise to enjoy a complementary picnic lunch with the glacial lakes, ancient forests and neck stretching peaks of the film trilogy as your backdrop. Throughout the tour our experienced local guides will give you great insight into why this region was an inspiration for so many movies and how it has brought the vision of Jackson and Tolkien to life on the big screen.

Tour Highlights:

  • LOTR & The Hobbit locations (Isengard, Lothorien Forests, Ithilien Camp, Amon Hen and Misty Mountains, Beorn’s House)
  • Multiple other movie locations (Wolverine & Narnia film locations)
  • Glenorchy township
  • Paradise, Dart and Rees River.
