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.
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%!
