New Zealand


The stunning landscapes surrounding this small town are a favorite for movie-makers, having been used in both The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia.


Looking around the town of Glenorchy, you’ll appreciate the quiet life and sense of peace that a small town with only a handful of streets can provide. However, it’s when you look up, past the houses to the mountain ranges, that you start to get a sense of what this small town is really about. Glenorchy is sought far and wide by outdoor enthusiasts for its offerings of climbing, swimming, fishing, hiking trails, and more. Be sure to take advantage of at least one of the local walking trails during your stop, as it’s only the best way to get a feel for the gorgeous landscape. It is no wonder that this locale has been used in such fantasy movies as The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia, and we have a feeling you’ll get a sense of that same magic on your visit.
