Hello everyone, today is a selfie of Dad and I at Rivendell, in Lord of the Rings Country – or as we call it New Zealand! Can you see me peeping up from my carrier? It was a fun trip, and I was wide awake the whole time.
How do I visit Rivendell?
Rivendell, also known to Ring fans as Imladris, means meaning “deep valley of the cleft”, and there are places where you feel surrounded by high hills, and deep river beds. Rivendell is hidden in Kaitoke Regional Park.
Kaitoke Regional Park covers 2860 hectares in the foothills of the Tararua Ranges, which are a range of spectacular hills that divide the Kapiti coast from the Wairarapa farming and wine making areas. Steep, bush-clad hills, and the Hutt River gorge make this a special place, and the centuries-old rata, rimu and beech forest are features in this gorgeous natural setting. You can camp here too!
