Description

Get your Lord of the Rings fix while exploring Wellington with a guide who is a specialist on the incredible book and film series. Journey to famous filming locations such as Mount Victoria and the Green Belt, as well as the workshop and studio where the magic film was created.

Waste no time with convenient pick-up from the cruise ship port. Your guide drives you into the city where you can see Courtenay Place and the Embassy Theatre where the world premier of some of the cinema, including the Hobbit, have been held. Next, discover the wooded forests that served as the outskirts of The Shire in The Fellowship of the Ring when Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin first leave their home behind, running from the seekers of the One Ring.

From atop Mount Victoria you see the lay of the land below, including a wondrous view of the coastline. Head back into Wellington to see behind-the-scenes sights. Wellywood, the Wellington film studios and post-production facilities, including Weta Workshop, is your first stop. Then, see the brand new Windows into Workshop exhibition where you are given a guided tour of the physical prop making and make-up studio. Along the way your guide keeps you entertained and well-informed, allowing you to ask any questions you may have about one of the best film series ever produced.
