Frequently Asked Questions

Will I see sets from Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit?

No. As part of gaining permission to film in the spectacular locations the producers were required to dismantle all sets except for Hobbiton.  We specialise in showing you where specific scenes were filmed.  Many of the movie locations are recognisable on our trips and your guide will give you insights into the stories behind them.

Our Glenorchy trips include an easy 15 minute (return) nature walk to a LOTR scene over a formed trail.  Clients have the option of staying in or near the vehicle if they wish at any of the stops on any of our tours.

6 seater 4WD Land Rover or Land Cruiser.
