Helicopter Ride Over Middle Earth

The Remarkables (the mountain ranges show below) were all over Lord of the Rings. Seeing their beauty IRL, it’s easy to see why. Check out the views from an insane helicopter ride just outside of Queenstown, New Zealand.

Rumor has it The Remarkables were given their name because it is one of two mountain ranges in the world that runs directly north to south. ↕️

Watch the video below for an idea of what the helicopter ride was like. However, New Zealanders have an intense hunger for danger and adventure. If you’re going to get in a helicopter there, be prepared that these guys are lunatics–fun lunatics–but definitely erring on the side of death games. Would I do it again? 100%!
