Geraldine Heritage Trails and Tales

Geraldine Heritage Trails and tales offers you the opportunity of personalised walking tours with full interpretation of significant sites and historical events, while enjoying fresh air and natural beauty.

From the tussock slopes of the hills behind Geraldine, the two million year old history of the area can be told. Thanks to the foresight of early settlers, relics of a bygone era are still evident.

 Most visitors passing through Geraldine are in a hurry to experience the beautiful lakes of the South Island and Aoraki Mount Cook, and are unaware of the beauty and significance of the area.

 Geraldine is rich in Maori and pioneering history and illustrates the history of colonial conflicts; political and cultural, including present day issues. 

 Why did Sir Peter Jackson, New Zealand’s famed film producer, choose this area to film Edoras, the main city of the Rohan people, in “Lord of the Rings”?

Join us for a two hour journey of discovery which includes a hot/cold drink at an iconic cafe.

Individual or group walks can be arranged on request throughout the year. Mid morning/afternoon and twilight options are possible.
