For your Lord of the Rings Edoras Tour from Christchurch you will be picked up from your hotel and will travel in a comfortable mini-coach.
This tour takes you to the remote and beautiful Mt Potts high country station, home of Mt Sunday. The wild scenery of Mt Potts was the location for “Edoras”, the fortress city of the Rohan people in the “Lord of The Rings” movies. Your friendly Kiwi guides will provide a fascinating commentary and tell you all kinds of amazing stuff about the making of the epic Lord of The Rings trilogy.
You’ll enjoy an exciting 4WD adventure, splashing through several streams and driving right onto Mt Sunday (Edoras) itself. Then take a short guided walk to stand on the summit and, like Eowyn, enjoy the breathtaking 360 degree views.
Your guides will show you behind-the-scenes photos of Edoras under construction and you will be able to handle movie replicas such as Aragorn's Sword, King Theoden's Sword, Gimli's Axe, Gandalf's Staff and Flag of Rohan.
As well as the Edoras location you will also see the scenes for the “Misty Mountains” and the area that formed the backdrop to “Helms Deep”.
Your tour includes a delicious lunch eaten against a backdrop of stunning scenery.
At the end of the tour you will be taken back to your accommodation in Christchurch.
