The Lord of the Rings has entertained millions of people since its debut. For many fans, the films felt so real; every hill and valley came alive with magic and mysteries, and the characters brought the lore to life. Here in the real world, we don’t encounter magic, wizards, or hobbits on adventures. Instead, we find our magic through the places we travel and the sights we see.
At Glenorchy Journeys, it is our pleasure to combine fantasy and natural beauty in an untouched world. Our Lord of the Rings locations tour will put you right in the heart of your favourite fantasy adventure and allow you to imagine the lives of beloved hobbits or explore the mysterious elven forests and woods. Our local guide will take you on a journey through Middle Earth where you will see some of the spectacular scenery that inspired Peter Jackson when filming the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies.
