Theres a reason Peter Jackson chose to film The Lord Of The Rings in New Zealand – they’re both truly epic! The South Island offers some of the most spectacular landscape scenery in the world – and we’ll be there during the peak of autumn colors. Where else can you see high mountain glaciers melt into cascading waterfalls, course into deep valleys, flood the mirror-like waters of deep fiords and lakes, and run through lush rain forests into wild volcanic coastlines Constantly changing weather brings dazzling light displays to them all! It’s a photographer’s paradise!
