Magical half day scenic tours departing central Queenstown 9am & 2pm daily.
No visit to Queenstown is complete without a trip to picturesque Glenorchy, located about 50 minutes away nestled on the northern shores of Lake Wakatipu and home to some of New Zealand’s best scenery – not to mention Middle‑earth magic. Whether you’re a Lord of the Rings fan or just want to see the absolutely amazing scenery Glenorchy has to offer, this tour is not to be missed.
The tour visits numerous scenic locations and shares facts, stories and history about the region including Maori history. On tour enjoy time at the Glenorchy wharf and a drive through the quaint township before continuing on to beautiful Paradise, passing Diamond Lake and viewing Lord of The Rings film locations. A delicious kiwi-style morning or afternoon tea is included and the opportunity to pose as a Lord of the Rings character while you’re there!
Travel in style in luxury Mercedes vans with unique onboard videos and complimentary water and wifi. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery and secret spots our local guides will show you.
Family packages available, two adults and two children, one child travels FREE!
For a full day of fun and decadence why not combine a morning Glenorchy and Paradise Tour with a Twilight Wine and Craft Beer tour or experience more of Queenstown’s incredible scenery with a boat cruise around Lake Wakatipu on Southern Discoveries’ ‘Spirit of Queenstown’. Depart at 1.00pm for a 1 hour 30 minute cruise and enjoy the sights with a glass of award-winning Central Otago wine and cheeseboard to share (additional costs apply and subject to availability).
