What are the best Lord of the Rings activities in New Zealand?
My partner and I are planning a trip to New Zealand this summer and we are hoping you guys can help us out with some advice. We're really big fans of Lord of the Rings and so we're keen to see some of the astoundingly beautiful scenery from the films. What national parks etc. would you recommend, and which cities are the best bases from which to travel? Also, is New Zealand as expensive as everyone says?
