Lord Of the Rings (2001-2003)
Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings captured the raw beauty of New Zealand, in a way, that no other film ever did before. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed back-to-back for a period of eight years in New Zealand which served as the lovely setting for the fascinating world of Middle Earth. Because of the huge success of the film, New Zealand’s tourism skyrocketed as people were dying to explore the virgin beauty of the country’s open landscapes.
Now if you visit New Zealand you can see a variety of Lord of the Rings-inspired tours that will show you various popular settings seen in the film.
