Mount Sunday (Edoras) is a stunning site with expansive views over the braided Rangitata River surrounded by mountains. The hill got it name from the high country boundary riders would meet here on Sundays. Recently it was made famous as Edoras in the Lord of The Rings movie The Two Towers.

5 stars. We booked at Auckland airport. We got picked up literally as we stepped out of airport. Friendly staff took our info and gave us the car keys(near new Rav4). Super simple process and car was in great condition. While dropping the car back Took them 2 minutes to inspect the car and without waiting we got dropped back to airport. Great price and they don't charge anything extra like cleaning etc. I would highly recommend them.
