The flight to the ford was filmed in two locations: Norwest Lakes (which I didn’t visit, and which also doubled as south of Rivendell), and Tarras (which I did).

FROM THE BOOK

Eriador (Lonely Lands): The Elvish name of the region called the Lone-lands in The Hobbit, the western lands of Middle-earth that lay between the Misty Mountains and the Blue.

Another place where you can’t actually reach the filming location. The good news is you can drive through Tarras (and I did by accident on my way somewhere else) and see exactly the sort of scenary from the film, the same trees and open ground that Arwen romped over while pursued by Ringwraiths.
