Tour In Lord Of The Rings Filming Locations From Wellington: Rivendell, Isengard & More

Although most travellers know Wellington for its walkability, Lord of the Rings fans are often disappointed to find that many of the region’s shooting locations are out of the city and down an unwelcoming rural side-road. On this guided tour of the trilogy’s Wellington locations, your guide takes care of transport so you can focus on the scenery of Helm’s Deep, Minas Tirith and Isengard.

Escape the city and visit some of the natural areas of the Wellington region.

Learn the processes required when creating these fantastic sets in beautiful locations. Our exclusive on-location movie clips will help you understand how many of these difficult filming shots were achieved.

We will go for walks in some of Wellington’s natural areas including parks, along rivers and in native reserves.

Lunch will be at Rivendell in the Kaitoke Regional Park.
