Your journey through Middle Earth starts from the station information centre on Camp Street at 8:00AM or 1:30PM.  From there you will travel to the top of Skippers Canyon and to Arrowtown, once rich gold mining locations, and you will learn about the history of the area.  We will check out The Ford of Bruinen, where the Black Riders challenge Arwen and are swept down the river, and then onto the Gladden Fields where Isildur was ambushed by Orcs and where the One Ring was lost.  From Arrowtown you will travel towards the Kawarau river where you will see The Argonath (The Pillars of the King).  Then its time for some fun handling and photographing weapons, such as Gimli's axe, Anduril and Sting.  After spending time reenacting scenes with the weapons there will be one last lookout stop where we will point out more locations of Rohan and Gondor before heading back to Queenstown.
