Who can forget the scene where Arwen summoned a great flood to prevent the darkly malevolent Black Riders from crossing the Ford of Rivendell - and claiming the Ring for their master Sauron? In reality, the Ford is the Shotover River, deep in Skippers Canyon near Queenstown - once the most prolific of local goldfields and now a popular visitor destination. Meanwhile, you'll find horses' track to the river on the banks of the Arrow River, only minutes away from historic gold-mining village of Arrowtown.

In South Island's remote and spectacular Kahurangi National Park, a local helicopter pilot spotted an ideal site for the rough country south of Rivendell. Several months later, cast and crew arrived to film the Fellowship seeking shelter from Saruman's 'crebain' (black crows) under the rocky outcrops of Mount Olympus. Sprouting from the side of the mountain, these rocks have twisted and cracked into surreal column-like shapes, stark pillars that add to area's mystically magical air.

Further south, and within deep valleys hidden near Mount Sunday in the towering Southern Alps, the Rings team created the Rohirrim city of Edoras and the Golden Hall, home of King Theoden. In this rocky, weather-beaten terrain, the crew spent 11 months constructing the elaborate set for the capital city of Rohan, the land of fabled horses and valiant warriors. The magnificent edifice attracted curious, camera-bearing visitors for many weekends, only too happy to make a journey from Christchurch over the flat Canterbury Plains to this elusive realm of snow-capped peaks.

The Great Battle of the Last Alliance, marking the end of Second Age of Middle-earth, was filmed in the starkly dramatic Tongariro National Park - home to Mount Ruapehu, highest mountain in the North Island. This landscape of blasted volcanic rock, steep bluffs and ash at Iwikau Village was a perfect location for Mount Doom in Mordor, epicenter of evil, home to the dark Lord Sauron and the place where the One Ring was first forged.
