What a day trip! I had such fun on a half day from Queenstown to Glenorchy.
I’ll say it once so listen up: you don’t have to be a Lord of the Rings buff to take a trip with Nomad Safaris. But it really helps.
The tour guides have so much specific knowledge about the area. They have film stills and cast anecdotes and movie secrets that’ll put you into information overload.
We had Badger as our guide and he took us to the forest to go LARPing (live action role playing). Who can resist donning a cloak and wielding a sword when it’s put in front of you? Morning tea was included and I had the best time.
If you’re not a cinema extraordinaire, the tour is still worth it for the landscape alone. Nomad Safaris take you off the beaten track to the most unbelievable vistas and your holiday snaps will be all the better for it.
I cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
