About Us

“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure…”

Gandalf

Lord of the Rings Tours is managed by Southern Lakes Sightseeing Tourism who have been operating since 2001. During this time we have shared many adventures with tourists, locals and fans of the Tolkien literature and movies.

We are proudly New Zealand (NZ) owned & operated and are committed to providing environmentally friendly tours to preserve our precious landscapes. This has been recognised by DOC (Department of Conservation) who have awarded us with a special license and approval certificate. 

As New Zealand’s Lord of the Rings specialists, we have created a stunning selection of tours and experiences that have been specifically tailored to cater to your Middle Earth hopes and expectations.

Our guides’ knowledge and passion are unsurpassed. They will wow you with stories, anecdotes and a wealth of background information of all things LOTR.

We also provide authentically reproduced weapons and costumes for fans who want to re-enact scenes and pose for photo opportunities. Locations are authenticated with photos to prove you’re standing in the same spot the actors were in the movies. And to top it off, we have a selection of souvenirs for you to remember your experience.

Join us on your personalised journey through the real Middle Earth.
