What you will visit:

Sightseeing Drive through Middle Earth
J. R. R. Tolkien's masterful Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed entirely in New Zealand with as many as nine individual camera units capturing the remote and breathtaking vistas. Together with your film buff guide, take in the pristine natural beauty of New Zealand's famous high country, Rangitata Valley and Mt. Potts Station, home to Mt. Sunday, also known as Edoras from the famed movies. Immerse yourself in the iconic landscapes and fill your camera with scenic splendor as well as a special photograph or selfie holding Lord of the Rings replica swords.

What you will see along the way:

Gaze out the window on a magical motorcoach ride over the farmland of the Canterbury Plains to the breathtaking Rakaia River. Drive inland toward the heart of the spectacular Southern Alps, arriving at Lake Clearwater to take in the panoramic vistas of mountains and forests, dotted with holiday homes. Visit the remote Mt. Sunday, home of Edoras, and continue to New Zealand's famous high country. On the return, travel across the Canterbury Plains to Christchurch for a short tour of the city's highlights before returning to port.

Snack/Lunch:
Morning tea begins the day, served while admiring breathtaking views of Rakaia River. Later, a delicious picnic lunch, including gourmet sandwiches, chocolates, fruit and a glass or two of New Zealand's finest bubbly, plus tea, coffee and juice, is served in the relaxed and beautiful setting of New Zealand's high country.
