Famous Movie Production Spots in the Wellington Region
From the bush and rivers in the north to the studios of Miramar in the south, we show you much of the Wellington region as we visit places where many Lord of the Rings scenes were filmed.
Combine the Valley and Wellington Movie tours to enjoy a full-on day of fun. Included are walks in parks and natural areas and, of course, lunch at Rivendell.
We also show you the famous movie production studios in Miramar, and we visit the famous Weta Cave. If you want to save a little, choose our standard tour to enjoy the Weta behind-the-scenes video. If you want the full experience, select the optional extra and include the Weta Cave Workshop Tour.
All our film location tours include explanations on filming techniques used, behind-the-scenes stories, and information on current and future filming projects.
Please note a moderate to high level of fitness is recommended for this tour as we will be walking up and down bush tracks. The tracks are slippery in places, so we recommend you wear suitable footwear as you feel necessary.
Picnic lunch at “Rivendell” is included.
NOTE: Our tours do require a minimum of two passengers for departure. If this minimum is not met, you will be contacted on the day of departure using your provided details and alternative dates offered or cancellation accepted. If you are in Wellington for a few days, especially during the quieter winter and shoulder periods, we STRONGLY suggest not leaving your chosen booking day until your last day in Wellington.
REMEMBER: All original sets were removed when filming was completed.
