On 20 October it will be the 60th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R Tolkein’s The Lord of the Rings, and Middle Earth fans wanting to celebrate in style in New Zealand are in for a treat.

Forged by Zicasso Handcrafted Travel, the 11-day “Ultimate ‘Lord of the Rings’ Tour: A 60th Anniversary Celebration” will include exclusive movie set tours, an after-hours tour of Weta Workshop, luxury accommodations and even private helicopter expeditions. Frodo fans will journey to iconic movie locations including the forest that provided the setting for Rivendell, the river Anduin and Mordor. We’re guessing you’ll also visit Orc-land (geddit?).
