Lord of the Rings helicopter tours

Experience stunning Lord of the Rings filming locations by helicopter

Flying to Mt Owen, at the southern end of the Kahurangi National Park, we will view the film sites from The Lord of the Rings and The Fellowship of the Ring, where the depleted Fellowship were filmed escaping from the horrors of Moria.

Flying through to Mt Olympus, appropriately named with its rocky outcrops twisted and cracked into unbelievable columnar shapes sprouting from the side of the mountain, we view where the Fellowship hid from Saruman’s Crebain.

We then fly to Canaan Downs where the Hobbits are lead by Aragorn into the Chetwood Forest northeast of Bree.

To customise your experience, we can add lunch and additional stops.
