Earnslaw Burn Heli-Hobbit

Nomad Safaris 4WD + Heliworks Helicopters

A Tolkein-inspired tour like no other. Located at the head of Lake Wakatipu the mighty Mt Earnslaw inspired Peter Jackson to film scenes from both the LOTR and The Hobbit here. Travel with your guide by helicopter over the pass of Cardharas into the Misty Mountains and land on a dramatic ridgeline beside the Earnslaw Glacier. Experience the same unrivalled views over the surrounding mountains and valleys that captivated the cast and crew of LOTR and The Hobbit.

After the return helicopter flight to Queenstown, your Nomad Safaris guide will continue with a bespoke 2.5 hour 4WD tour.  After visiting local Lord of the Rings and Hobbit filming locations that capture the breathtaking natural beauty of New Zealand, you will enjoy delicious light refreshments beside the Arrow River.

Without a doubt New Zealand’s most awe inspiring Hobbit and LOTR filming location tour.

We recommend that clients wear comfortable footwear and warm layers all year round.
