Explore Middle Earth on a New Zealand Lord of the Rings Tour

New Zealand and its stunning scenery was the perfect choice as the background for the Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit movies. Prehistoric forests, snow covered mountains, rolling green farmland and wild rivers. As well as a great range of LOTR and Hobbit themed activities to enjoy as you travel you can also view many of the locations used with relative ease and the help of a good LOTR guide book. Just ask us and we can include one with your tour pack!
These New Zealand Lord of the Rings tours & itinerary ideas are designed to give you some great inspiration and because every vacation or holiday we create is tailor-made we can include as much Lord of the Rings excitement as you want. We have hundreds of accommodation options from great value motels and apartments to hotels to luxury lodges and all our tours can be customised to suit you. 
Some of the more popular locations include Hobbiton where you can visit the original location of the village. Restored and maintained to an incredible standard the enthusiastic LOTR guides and fans bring it to life. As you drive through the central North Island a striking volcanic mountain is visible and this was the backdrop for Mt. Doom. On the South Island you can retrace the barrel run from the Hobbit trilogy, view the landscapes and scenery on the Mackenzie basin used for some of the battle scenes and in and around Queenstown there are an abundance of places and tours that will bring the scenes back to life.
So to get started on your Middle Earth adventure just get in touch with the team at Fine Tours New Zealand for a free consultation.
