    1. From Christchurch: Full-Day Lord of the Rings Tour to Edoras

    Depart Christchurch and travel to the remote backcountry region of Mount Potts by 6WD vehicle. Discover first-hand how the peaceful mountain location was transformed into Edoras, the capital of the Rohan people in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Get back to nature and soak up the unspoiled beauty as you encounter lakes of sparkling water and rivers that glisten blue. Breathe in the crisp mountain air, and take a short guided walk to stand on the mountain summit for exceptional views. Get the chance to take souvenir photos of movie prop swords and flags, and listen to an informative commentary from your guide along the way.

    It was Awesome. I enjoy the breathtaking scenery. It is a must do for those who is going to visit Christchurch. Our tour guide, Mark, was impressive. He told us everything about the set of LOTR. Overall, Wownderful..

Excellent day out

A fantastic day out. Maria was our guide and she was knowledgeable, funny, friendly and a safe driver. We had beautiful weather and it was such a buzz to be on top of Mt Sunday imagining Edoras where the views are spectacular. We had a lovely lunch in a lodge on the way back and saw lots of short videos about LOTR. One of the best days out I had in NZ and Maria was a big part of that...thanks Maria!

Excellent day out with a great guide (Maria) who made the experience more enjoyable with her knowledge and enthusiasm. I would recommend this trip whether you’re a lord of the rings fan or not

Very cool tour! We had a awesome guide who actually did the sound on the set for LOTR and he told us some "Inside stories". Edoras is a beautiful place even without the actual buildings!

It was an awesome adventure and Steven was a great guide.
