This tour is an easy day trip from Auckland. Embark upon a magical journey through Middle-earth to the Hobbiton Movie Set from “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” films 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 the Shire. Your guide will give you commentary on the way down with insights about the areas you are travelling through and insights into the background to the movies.
On arrival at Shire’s Rest, you embark on your guided walking tour of the Hobbiton movie set. This location is the largest “green set” in the world and the only 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 concludes with a visit to the Green Dragon Inn where you can enjoy a complimentary ale, cider or ginger beer.
After the tour, a sumptuous buffet lunch fit for a Hobbit is included before heading back to Auckland.
