We start the day at a sensible hour hotel pick up 9am and travel on one of the most scenic drives in New Zealand to Glenorchy at the western end of Lake Wakatipu. Not far from here we venture onto Private Property a 20000 acre sheep and beef farm where we have access up 4WD trails into the heart of Middle Earth.

Our first stop there is in the "front row" overlooking Isengard from Lord of the Rings and we take a short walk into native beech forest a tranquil moment in this mountain setting. This is the ultimate photography location elevated above the Dart River with views over Mt Aspiring National Park to snow-capped mountains beyond.

At lunch time we have a picnic lunch on the mountain or a cafe lunch at Kinloch nestled by the lake shore a beautiful peaceful setting. The afternoon is spent further exploring a trail above Diamond Lake, there is the opportunity for some walking and an opportunity to see farm activities should they be available on the day. A visit to the sheep shearing woolshed is a must where once a year 5000 sheep are shorn, numerous farm animals are sprinkled across this amazing home for them called the Paradise Valley.

Venturing further up the valley beyond Diamond Lake we see the majestic Arcadia Homestead and further movie locations from the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit movies before returning via Glenorchy to Queenstown. Refreshments are included, this tour is not suitable for children under 5 years of age.
