Itinerary
Where this Tour takes you

On a scenic day trip to Cape Palliser Bay, discover a Lord of the Rings filming site located right at Wellington’s doorstep.

After hotel pickup, listen to fascinating facts about Wellington’s history and enjoy the scenic drive into the Lower and Upper Hutt valleys.

Continue on to find Middle-earth’s Great River Anduin and visit Kaitoke Park, aka Rivendell. See where Frodo recuperated from his sword attack by the Ringwraiths and, if you’re feeling adventurous, cross a swing bridge suspended over the rushing river below.

Your guide remarks on the area’s natural landmarks as you journey through the Rimutaka and Tararua ranges and the country towns of Featherston and Martinborough. You’ll have time for lunch in Lake Ferry, provided at a waterfront inn.

Then, continue your tour through the lovely coastal scenery of Cape Palliser Bay, where you’ll get up close to the largest fur seal colony in the North Island. If you wish, huff up the 250 steps to Cape Palliser Lighthouse for more spectacular views.

Then, relax on the return drive to Wellington, stopping for wine tasting at a Martinborough winery, including the region’s prized pinot noir, before drop-off.
