Combine the Mt Olympus and Mt Owen tours for the ultimate Lord of the Rings Experience!

First track northwest into Golden Bay for a landing on Mt Olympus to explore the site of “South of Rivendell.” Reboard the helicopter again to fly south towards Mt Owen, above the vast and untouched terrain that is the very heart of the Kahurangi National Park. Land once more to view the rocky landscape that became the “Exit from the Mines of Moria.” From here it is a short flight back to our Wakefield Heliport with views of Tasman Bay.

Optional Add On – Salisbury Falls

Please note: This option is not available on the Mt Owen Single Site Tour.
Salisbury Falls in the Aorere River of Golden Bay is at the very start of Kahurangi National Park’s Heaphy Track. This was the film site where Tauriel & Legolas met before heading into Lake-town, as seen in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Salisbury Falls can be added to our Mt Olympus Single Site Tour or Mt Owen/Mt Olympus Combo Tour and adds 45 minutes to the total tour duration.
