New Zealand: The Lord of the RingsTouring Wellington's Middle Earth Locations
The wealth of LOTR locations in and around Wellington is not surprising given it's Peter Jackson's home town. With so many filming sites to choose from, it is rather convenient - and much more fun - to hop on one of the tours offered by veteran tour operator Rover Rings Tours.
You can choose between two different half-day options and a full-day option. Regardless of your choice, all tours will take you to some pretty iconic locations. Check out the following selection.
Weta Cave and 'Windows into Workshop' Tour
Kaitoke Regional Park
All tours depart from Wellington's inner city. Pickups from the central city are complimentary.

The full day tour stops for a lunch break at Scorch-O-Rama. The quirky café is a popular hang-out for the creatives who work in Peter Jackson's nearby film studios.
