Overview

After leaving Auckland you will travel south over the Bombay Hills as you get elevated panoramic views of the Waikato Region and travel across the scenic Hauraki Plains to Matamata, the home of Hobbiton Movie Set.

You will then enjoy the most informative trip of a lifetime as you explore the Movie Set on a 2-hour tour in the expert hands of your very knowledgeable tour guide. The Hobbiton Movie Set Tour is based at the original location where Hobbiton was created for the filming of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. It offers an interesting and entertaining experience incorporating the famous film set and a special insight into rural life.

Start by crossing a 1,250 acre (506 ha.) sheep farm with spectacular views across the Kaimai Ranges, then visit the top sites in Hobbiton, including Hobbit Holes, The Green Dragon Inn, The Mill, and other structures. Cap off the tour with a complimentary specially-brewed drink from The Green Dragon Inn.

Begin with a tour through the picturesque 1,250 acre sheep farm with spectacular views across the Kaimai Ranges. Your guide will escort you through the 10 acre site recounting fascinating details of how the Hobbiton Movie Set was created. Hobbit Holes, The Green Dragon Inn, The Mill and other structures can be viewed and you will see how this beautiful piece of Waikato farmland was transformed into the Shire from Middle-earth. Complimentary specially brewed beverages are available at the Green Dragon Inn as you complete your tour.

Your return trip to Auckland will cross some of New Zealand's most beautiful countryside, following the majestic Waikato River, the longest river in New Zealand, and passing  a sacred Maori burial ground as well as Ngaruawahia, the home of the Maori King Taupiri. 

This full-day excursion concludes with drop-off at the original departure point in downtown Auckland.
