Middle Earth Tour: full day

This Lord of the Rings tour is a full day and our most popular tour, it visits all of the filming locations for Rivendell where Frodo recovered from his knife attack; the River Anduin where the Fellowship voyaged to Amon Hen; the river where Aragorn was washed ashore after the attack of the Wargs. The Gardens of Isengard, the site of the Orcs Felling the Trees and where Gandalf rode to see Saruman. Go to the Mount Victoria lookout and Buckland Forest where you can race to the Buckleberry Ferry and "Get off the Road", where the Hobbits hid from the Nazgul/Black Riders. Over look the Dunharrow Rohirrim encampment and visit the quarry used for the filming of Helms Deep in Rohan and Minas Tirith in Gondor.

You will enjoy an al fresco lunch (weather permitting) or dine at one of the region's leading restaurants.



You will be spellbound at the site of Lothlorien - the majestic Fernside Lodge. This private garden is exclusively accessible with Flat Earth Tours. In the year 2000 Fernside’s lake was transformed into part of Lothlorien, and also the Gladden fields. You will see where Smeagol and Deagol fought for the Ring right at the lake-side.  Fernside’s white bridge is a reminder of the bridge of Lothlorien. Fernside today remains a magical place and a must do for any Lord of the Rings fan.

We did the extended tour, and boy was it worth it. Our guide Jack, who also happens to be a founder of the NZ chapter of the Tolkien Society, was chock full of knowledge about the different sites, and even managed to impress a selfprofessed fanatic on the subject. Through nine hours of touring we were thoroughly satisfied with our Lord of the Rings experience. Would recommend to all fans of the films, and the books aswell. Worth every penny!
