New Zealand is beautiful. So beautiful that it was chosen as the “decoration” by Peter Jackson for filming the fantasy land of Middle-earth. Emerald meadows, snowy mountains, into which turquoise fjords flowing through, – this is truly a land of magic and untouched nature.

It is logical that, like all places that preserve their natural authenticity, the main beauties of the islands are quite inaccessible, especially since 75% of the territory is occupied by mountains: on the South Island there are 19 peaks more than 3,000 meters high. Therefore, one of the most convenient ways to follow “The Lord of the Rings heroes” path is to go on a tour in a jeep, buggy, quad or motorcycle. Many Hollywood directors are attracted by the diversity and scope of New Zealand landscapes.
