The Ultimate Lord of the Rings Experience

Reid Helicopters Nelson is a family run business that personally flew the cast and crew during filming and production for Lord of the Rings. Bill Reid, the initial founder of Reid Helicopters, was instrumental in scouting out the locations for the films, and worked closely with Sir Peter Jackson, the cast and the crew during the filming. Reid Lord of The Rings Tours include two world famous sites, adventuring into the breathtaking scenery of Mt Olympus (South of Rivendell) & Mt Owen (Dimrill Dale). Not only will you have the opportunity to experience these stunning locations up close, you will also learn first hand the stories and tales from the filming shoots, see exactly where the action took place…and get to walk in the footsteps of Hobbits!
