  • On Location 'Aoraki Mount Cook'

    Filming Information

    Feature film Director Martin Campbell chose this region to set his icy drama “Vertical Limit”. The awe inspiring look of New Zealand’s highest peak, Aoraki Mt Cook and its spectacular environs provided the ‘Himalayan’ look for this action packed adventure starring U.S actor Chris O’Donnell. Vast snow covered plains with the Southern Alps backdrop also feature in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. Cobalt coloured canals lined by tar sealed roads with wild flowering borders have seen this region become the favoured location for most major international automobile television commercials.
