The Wakatipu Basin tour takes you to The Remarkables, which were used as various mountains throughout the trilogy. You will enjoy a birds eye view onto Deer Park Heights, which was used for the refugees of Rohan and the Battle of the Wargs scenes. Travelling from The Remarkables we head to the Kawarau Gorge where the Pillars of the Kings were filmed. The trip then heads to Arrowtown, where you will experience some true off road adventure. Following a historic gold mining road up the Arrow River you will cross the river to get to the Ford of Bruinen and try your hand at gold panning. You will travel to the entrance of Skippers Canyon where you will be offered spectacular panoramic views of the Wakatipu Basin and over the Skippers Road.
