Hobbiton Movie Set Tours from Tauranga
A trip to the Hobbiton Movie Set is definitely a must if you’re a Lord of the Rings fan. The film location is in a town called Matamata which is less than an hour’s drive from the city of Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty.
Those looking for a cruise ship excursion from Tauranga can join our Rotorua and Hobbiton combo tour. Explore the geothermal wonderland that is Rotorua and head to Hobbiton and get exclusive information about the production of the movies. This trip is scheduled around the cruise ships’ departure and arrival time so you don’t need to worry about timing.
And while it’s easily accessible by car, those who are short of time can take an unforgettable scenic helicopter flight to Hobbiton. This 3-hour trip will let you enjoy the stunning Kaimai Ranges, surrounding farm lands and lush native forests.
