Begin your Lord of the Rings adventure with a morning pickup from your Christchurch hotel and head west by 4-wheel drive vehicle to Mount Sunday, better-known to Lord of the Rings fans as Edoras the capital city of the Rohan people.
Bounce over rocky terrain and through narrow streams, and alight at Edoras itself. Follow your friendly guide on a tour of the site and stand on the summit as Eowyn did for panoramic views over the alpine lakes, mountain peaks, rivers and high-country farm land below.
With informative and entertaining commentary from your guide, take a look at behind-the-scenes photos of Edoras under construction available only from your tour leaders. Marvel at the Misty Mountains among the most significant features of Middle-earths geography and see the valley backdrop of the imposing Helms Deep.
After a delicious picnic lunch with Champagne, handle movie replicas such as Aragorns sword, King Theodens sword, Gimlis axe and the flag of Rohan. Peruse the wide selection of movie merchandise and perhaps pick up a souvenir of your visit (own expense).
During your time on the mountain, gain insight into Edoras magic and mystery. Learn why this special site was selected for the Lord of the Rings movie and enjoy feeling part of the action.
When your time on Edoras comes to an end, hop back in your vehicle for the drive back to your Christchurch hotel, where your Lord of the Rings adventure will come to an end.
