Lord of the Rings Tour and Dart River Jet Full-Day Tour

In the morning, travel to locations used for filming the Lord of the Rings trilogy around Queenstown. You can see and experience some of the spectacular landscapes featured in the films such as Ithilien, Isengard, Lothlorien and Amon Hen.
Our knowledgeable guides will share information about each location and help uncover the secrets behind how each area was transformed into Middle Earth and let you relive the action for your own camera.

Lunch break in Glenorchy (feel free to bring your own if you prefer).

In the afternoon, you’ll experience a unique combination of breath-taking scenery and an exhilarating ride as we follow the braided, glacier-fed rivers by jet boat.
Your guides give you their authentic touch, talking about the area’s rich history, the Greenstone trail and countless Maori legends. It’s a complete Queenstown to Glenorchy experience in an untouched natural wonderland.
