Lake Wakatipu 180

This panorama of Lake Wakatipu encompasses an area that is probably the most filmed in New Zealand.

On the left is Glenorchy and the Dart River which has featured in The Lord of the Rings, X-Men - Wolverine, The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian and The Lovely Bones amongst others. The number of advertisements is just too big to list.

To the right is Mt Nicholas, filmed in The Waterhorse.

In fact, you could make a location guide right here - note to self........

Thanks to Alfie Speight and Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters for the opportunity.
