Depart from your Auckland hotel at approximately 6:30am for a roughly 2.5-hour drive south over the Bombay Hills to the lush farmland of the Waikato region. Upon arrival at the Hobbiton Movie Set, you and your fellow The Lord of the Rings fans have an early tour with a private guide. Ask away about Mordor, filming details, and whatever else comes to mind as you pass Bilbo Baggins’ house, the mill, and the party tree, among other recognizable landmarks. One thing you won’t get out your guide? Whether or not the five hobbit holes you visit appeared in The Hobbit series. Ogle the round doors and windows of the Smials that are not open to visit during the regular tours. This is the only way to see the latest in hobbit architecture! Head to an epic breakfast at the Green Dragon Inn. The meal includes morning staples such as scrambled eggs, bacon and fruit, in addition to creamy mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and a specially made breakfast mince. After your tour of Hobbiton Movie Set, hop in your provided transport to head back to your Auckland hotel. Along the way, you will stop for a scoop of New Zealand’s signature Hokey Pokey ice cream at Pokeno. The world-famous vanilla ice cream is packed with clumps of honeycomb toffee — a sweet way to end your day.
