What To Expect
You’ll bump along rocky terrain and traverse narrow streams en route to Edoras. On arrival at the movie site, follow in the footsteps of the noblewoman Eowyn, and stand at the summit for 360-degree views over alpine lakes, mountain peaks and high-country farmland below.
Your guide shares behind-the-scenes photos of Edoras under construction and points out significant geographical features of Middle-earth, including the Misty Mountains, the river Snowbourn and the valley of Harrowdale against the imposing Helms Deep. Learn why this particular site was selected by director Peter Jackson for The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Enjoy a picnic lunch (see the Itinerary for a sample menu) with a glass of sparkling wine, and pose for photos with replica props such as the flag of Rohan, Gimli’s axe, or the sword of Aragorn or King Theoden. Then hop back in your 4WD vehicle for the drive back to your Christchurch hotel, where your Edoras excursion comes to an end.
