Lord of the Rings: Lorien

* LotR: The Fellowship of the Ring

The primary location for "Lorien" is located on (aptly named) Paradise Road, out of Glenorchy, at the Western tip of Lake Wakatipu. This is an area of particularly striking natural beauty, and where one can find plenty of the ancient Southern beech forest which is such a good approximation of the mallorn trees of the magic realm of the Elves. The area has been used for other film shoots since: when we were there in 2007, we came across a film shoot for Prince Caspian! You can spot the utility tents and bright spot lights on a couple of the photos.
