  • Immerse yourself in glorious mountain scenery
  • See stunning scenes used in The Lord of the Rings movies
  • Amazing photographs to show how Edoras was constructed for the movies
  • Fantastic photo-opportunities everywhere you look
  • Fascinating commentary from friendly, helpful local guides

You don’t have to be a “Lord of the Rings” fan to enjoy this magical day out. But if you loved the epic movie trilogy you will not want to miss this full-day adventure.

Leave the city behind and travel to the harsh and hauntingly beautiful high country of Mt Potts Station. You will soon see why this wild rocky terrain was chosen as the location for Edoras, the capital of Rohan in the award-winning Lord of the Rings films.

Take an exhilarating 4WD trip through spectacular scenery to reach Edoras itself. Immerse yourself in the unspoilt beauty of the high country's sparkling clear lakes, glistening blue rivers and fresh mountain air. The friendly local guides will tell you all kinds of enthralling details about the making of the movies and you will get to handle a whole range of movie replicas such as Aragorn's Sword, Gandalf's Staff and the Flag of Rohan.

An outdoor lunch served in stunning surroundings just adds to the enchantment of this truly memorable experience.

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.
