Overview

Relive the real-life wonders of the Lord of the Rings! Join a 1 Day Private Lord of the Rings Wellington Filming Location Luxury Tour in a Mercedes Benz Viano minibus. Obsidian New Zealand is a tour company known for their passion and extensive experience in guiding New Zealand LOTR tours since 2002.

It’s not every day you get to visit Wellington, so get ready to make the most out of this full 10-hour tour exploring the capital’s film industry as well as filming locations. Don’t worry if you are short on time; let us know directly and we can arrange a shorter tour to match your needs.

The Weta Workshop is a must-see, and the Roxy Cinema is a local legend, so we will take you there and beyond. We will visit the top LOTR filming locations in Wellington & the Hutt Valley. These are the prime filming sites where you can witness how scenes were made and even re-enact them if you are game. Photo opportunities abound so make sure your camera is ready!

Wheel Chair Access

One of the key locations in the tour is NOT accessible to wheelchairs as it’s a steep forest trail. Because of this, this tour is normally offered only to people with good mobility. Instead we recommend booking the 7 hour Lord of the Rings Private Tour, which can be modified for wheel chair access.
