Much of Hercules and Xena has been filmed outside the studios 'on location'.
Through the untiring efforts of our dedicated team of happy idiots, maybe half
these locations have been tracked down and are described in the pages linked below.
Never mind. On to the locations we do know about (most of them, anyway):
However, Pacific Renaissance have a plentiful supply of forests, lakes and waterfalls
which have defeated our best efforts. Particularly the waterfalls. We now have very
sore feet and an increasing list of waterfalls not used by PacRen.
West Coast and beaches
North of Bethells
Waiti Valley (Bethells)
Ruapehu (and Amazon Land of the Dead)

Hazards for Location
Where Is It?
The locations described have been used for many, many more scenes than it has
been possible to mention in these pages. If you have a question about
the location of a specific scene, by all means email:
the scene and the episode in which it occurs (most important!) and, if
I know the location, I'll happily tell you. I only know maybe half the
locations used, though, so no guarantees.
