Adventure Safari

Way back in 2005, Wellington Movie Tours was created to fill a gap in the local tourism market.

After Peter Jackson released Lord of the Rings to the world, there was massive interest in Wellington from around the world.

With so many of our friends working at special fx company Weta Workshop, it seemed logical to show visitors around and introduce them to the local filming industry. Come join us for a movie tour today!

Fun, Knowledgeable Tours in Wellington, New Zealand


"Wow! This tour was amazing for our grandson, Pierce. He is a huge Lord of the Rings, Hobbit film/book fan. The landscape is absolutely breathtaking at times. It ended at the Weta workshop. Overall, it could not have been a better experience."

Love the movies

"The highlights were the national park where Rivendell was filmed which is stunning and the location where Aragorn fell by the river is hidden off a regular suburban street but is also beautiful. Would never have imagined that the river was behind some houses."

A really enjoyable day

"We were able to take pictures of reenacting scenes from the movies with props and watched behind the scenes videos before reaching several locations from the filming. So don’t be surprised by that when you get to each location - just use the pictures provided and your imagination."

Lovely Day Out

"Had a great day out with Kate who was actually in the Hobbit film! It was a lovely sunny day the group was great and I learned so much about Lord of the Rings. Rivendell was by far the highlight, it is so gorgeous there. Kate is a great guide as she is actually a Lord of the Rings and Hobbit super fan, she is so passionate."
