The Prequel to the LOTR trilogy The Hobbit is currently in pre-production (earlier this week) and will be filming on location throughout New Zealand.
If you would like to ‘simply walk into Mordor’, there are many tours available that will take you to various points of interest from the LOTR movies. You may also choose to rent a car (and a GPS!) to have your own adventure. For the best of the South Island, have us book a scenic helicopter flight tour on location with the pilots that help filmed LOTR.
