Envelope yourself in the magic of Lord of the Rings!
Join the expert guides at Wellington Rover Tours for a half day LOTR extravaganza, bringing together the best locations in Wellington City, remote film locations and amazing visual feast at Weta.
The first part of your day will be an exploration of the city. See the Embassy Theatre where the world premieres of LOTR and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey were held, venture up Mt Victoria to soak up breathtaking views of the city, then on to the Green Belt to walk through the forest and stand right where the LOTR actors did while filming those famous scenes.
Part two of your tour encompasses the best that SPFX has to offer. Visit Wellywood and the Weta Cave, where you will take in the Windows into Workshop exhibition. A guided tour of the prop-making and make up studios and a short film about the digital executions will give you all you need to know about production. You’ll then have time to wander the mini-museum and gift shop before being transported back to the city.
For LOTR enthusiasts with a limited schedule, this is a brilliant way to get the best insights in a short time frame.
