Experience an exclusive 4.5 hour guided tour over “The Hobbit” and “Lord of the Rings” country.
Our Helicopter experience follows the Eagles flight with a landing on glaciated Fog Peak, to admire Mt Aspiring (Tititea) at 3033m, and it’s surrounding glacier cloaked panorama of the breathtaking Southern Alps. Amazingly we can see 3 Trilogy film sites from here. Skimming the razor back ridges, we fly and land on Treble Cone’s Towers Ridge.
We soak in the view between the Towers and then walk the very footsteps that the legendary dwarves, wizard, and our little heroic ring carrier traversed in their quest over the top of the Misty Mountains, as seen in the Hobbit movie. An unexpected journey through this very set!
On our quest, we descend 2 hours of guided hike from 2000m, traversing the ridge line, revealing huge rock pillars, canyons, cliffs and glaciers draining into rivers, joining the beautiful jewel blue lake far below. The laketown of Wanaka is to the east.
This downhill walk has amazing diversity, revealing unexpected wonders… Home of the fearless New Zealand falcon, and the curious kea, a unique, inquisitive mountain parrot.
Turn your fantasy into reality – Traverse the Misty Mountains!
This is a truly alpine experience made easily accessible, a REAL adventure!
