Overview

Auckland-Auckland

Let us take you on a magical journey through Middle Earth to the Hobbiton Movie Set from the Lord of the Rings film trilogy for a fascinating guided tour.

Travel south from Auckland over the Bombay Hills to the rich farmland of the Waikato region. Your journey takes you through undulating green hills reminding you that you are approaching Hobbiton Shire.

On arrival at Shire’s Rest you embark on your Hobbiton movie set tour. This location is the largest “green set” in the world and the part of the set remaining in New Zealand. You see 44 hobbit holes, the Mill and double arch bridge and the party tree. At this stunning location you can take a photo at the gate to Bilbo’s house, “Bag End”, looking out over the whole set to the hills in the distance. The tour ends with a visit to the Green Dragon Inn for a drink.

After the tour a sumptuous buffet lunch fit for a Hobbit is included, before heading back to Auckland before the traffic builds up.

Auckland-Rotorua

Note: There is an option to be transferred to Rotorua at the end of the tour. After the tour at Hobbiton, board the shuttle at Shire’s Rest Café for your journey to Rotorua.
