Overview

For the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the filming locations for ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and the ‘Hobbit’ trilogies, a visit to the Hobbiton Movie Set in New Zealand is in order.  Avoid the crowds and enjoy being one of the first tours to be welcomed into the Hobbiton set for the day. On this Exclusive Access Hobbiton Movie Set Tour with your small group from Auckland, your guide will show you around places that only film crews had access to in the past.

Leave your Auckland hotel at around 6AM and head south over the Bombay Hills to Waikato region’s lush farmlands. Along the way, get to know the history of the areas you’re passing through from your Bush and Beach guide who will also share with you a helpful background to the movies. On reaching the Hobbiton Movie Set, go on an early tour with a private guide who will show you and your fellow Hobbiton fans around the set. Make sure your camera’s ready for the many photo opportunities along the way such as Bilbo Baggins’ House, the Party Tree, and the Mill, which are just a few of the set’s iconic landmarks. Not everyone gets exclusive access to “The Smials,” so make the most of your time at these five additional Hobbit holes that scheduled tours do not go to. Enjoy more time spent on the set than you would if you were on a regular tour.

Put on a huge smile as you have your photos taken outside the gate to Bag End. Then make your way to the Green Dragon Inn for a delicious second breakfast of morning staples such as bacon, scrambled eggs, fruit and sausages as well as grilled tomatoes and creamy mushrooms.

Drop by at the gift shop at the end of your Hobbiton Movie  Set tour. On your drive back to Auckland, stop for a scoop of Hokey Pokey ice cream, New Zealand’s signature vanilla ice cream well-loved for its clumps of honeycomb toffee. It’s a fitting treat to end the day the sweet way.
