Journey to Middle Earth: Lord of the Rings High Country

Journey to the remote and beautiful high country station, home of Mt Sunday. See how this peaceful mountain was transformed into Edoras, the capital city of the Rohan people in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. Immerse yourself in the natural unspoiled beauty of the high country's sparkling clear lakes, glistening blue rivers and fresh mountain air. Marvel at one breathtaking sight after another, the farmlands of the Canterbury Plains, the high country of the Southern Alps, Rakaia River, Lake Clearwater, and the Akaroa bays. Arrive at the spectacular setting where Lord of the Rings fans will recognize Edoras. Take time to enjoy the views and have your photo taken with Lord of the Rings replica swords.
