Tailor-made Queenstown & SurroundingsTravel Experiences -

Welcome to Tolkien Land

Larger than life and in 3D: Welcome to the sceneries that fascinated millions in The Lord of the Rings. Large parts of the epic movie were filmed around Queenstown, New Zealand. Discover a stunning landscape with soaring peaks and breathtaking panoramas. It is indeed a landscape that is perfect for the big screen: Snow-capped mountains, flourishing plains, gurgling streams, deep canyons and crystal-clear lakes exude an irresistible charm. Lake Wakatipu is a fine example and Queenstown nestles gracefully on its shores. Follow in the footsteps of Frodo and Sam, for example, crossing Arrow River near Arrowtown. In the Lord of the Rings, Arwen summoned the force of the river to flush the Nazgul riders down the rocky riverbed. Without having to spend many weeks of hardship on the road like the Fellowship of the Ring, you easily arrive in Isengard and Lothlorien. The respective film locations are near the city Glenorchy. Minas Tirith, Moria and the Anduin River are equally close by. Of course, the landscape unfolds its magic regardless of whether you are a Lord of the Rings fan or not. The charming Queenstown area is stunningly beautiful. Inhale the crisp, clean air and soak up the unspoilt flair. Despite the Lord of the Ring tourism, the region still remains quiet and laid-back. Hike some lonely trails, climb the mountains or entertain yourself with one of the countless activities that Queenstown offers. In fact, “activity” is a world that does not even begin to describe the many adrenaline-pumping thrills offered around Queenstown. Queenstown is New Zealand’s official action and adrenaline capital city. The brave at heart may toss themselves down the Nevis Highwire – a 134 metres high bungee jump, go white-water rafting or snowboarding, to name just a few of the options to get your skin crawling with excitement. Then again you may choose the scenic route, discovering the region on horseback. Talk to our experienced team of travel consultants. It is a pleasure for us to prearrange activities for you, saving you the time and the hassle on site. An emphatic recommendation goes to Bob’s Peak, which boasts a magnificent view of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu. And on a rainy day, visit the Skyline Showscan Theatre that regularly shows fascinating films on New Zealand. The Queenstown centre has become popular. Those who are looking for a more tranquil backdrop may choose to unwind in the picturesque town Wanaka, on the lake of the same name. At only 45 minutes from Queenstown, everything moves slower and less deliberately. The hotels around Queenstown are on a par with the beauty of the nature where extravagance is concerned. Some of the best hotels of the southern hemisphere are located in the region and you may look forward to first-class service, gourmet cuisine and sophisticated accommodation. Despite being among the first people in the world to welcome the new day, time flies and a three to four days’ stay in Queenstown is advisable. There are not only countless sights and sceneries to admire, there are also the many activities. However, whenever you wish to relax with the help of professional and caring hands, most of the INTOSOL hotels and lodges offer superb spa treatments and massages to indulge in.
