Feb 11th: Canterbury Station, Mt Sunday & Lord of the Rings Sights
Journey to the remote and beautiful high country station, home of Mt Sunday and see how this peaceful mountain was transformed into Edoras, the capital city of the Rohan people in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. Immerse yourself in the natural unspoiled beauty of the high country's sparkling clear lakes, glistening blue rivers and fresh mountain air. As this easy full-day excursion unfolds, you'll marvel at one breathtaking sight after another: the farmlands of the Canterbury Plains, the high country of the Southern Alps, Rakaia River, Lake Clearwater, and the Akaroa bays. After morning tea, arrive at the spectacular setting where Lord of the Rings fans will recognize Edoras. Take time to enjoy the views and have your photo taken with Lord of the Rings replica swords. With a delicious picnic lunch at a High Country setting, your day out is complete.
