Middle Earth awaits you!  These premium New Zealand Lord of the Rings location tours and itineraries let you visit and experience the locations Peter Jackson turned into Tolkein's mythical land.

All Middle Earthers, we New Zealanders are eternally thankful that the Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies were made here. You'll wonder why anywhere else was even considered when you embark on one of these itineraries. New Zealand's landscape and scenery lends itself so well to the world Tolkien imagined.

Travelling through New Zealand Middle Earth activities are seldom far away. You can experience the locations the film-makers used and imagine yourself amongst the characters. While a visit to the sets and the technical workshops will help you fully understand what goes into an achievement like the LOTR movies.

'What a fantastic holiday ! Everything we travelled to or booked was better than we expected. Michelle's help in sorting the itinerary was first class ...'
[Michael Peters & Family, GBR - LOTR Scenic Explorer, June 2015]
