Paradise Safari is a half or full day 4WD safari featuring stunning locations from 'The Lord of The Rings' trilogy and the many other movies filmed in and around Lake Wakatipu, Glenorchy and the Paradise Valley. Our guides will make you feel like you were there. Not a movie fan? The scenery will astound you. Enjoy short walks, snow capped mountains, lakes, native flora and fauna, entertaining commentary and a stop in rural Glenorchy for a complimentary drink. On the full day trip enjoy a delicious lunch at a local vineyard and choose your own afternoon adventure with options to see more nature and scenery or filming locations. The half day tour leaves at 8am or 1:30pm (4.5hr duration) and the full day leaves at 8am (8hrs) every day.
