The Lords of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies brought us a completely new world of fantasy. The Hobbiton Movie Set Tour from Auckland brings the adventures of Bilbo, Frodo, Gandalf and their friends to life as you retrace the footsteps and embrace the iconic locations from the movies.
The Hobbiton Movie Set still remains one of New Zealand’s biggest fantasy attractions of the past decade. Without this movie set, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies could not exist, so this tour offers a one-of-a-kind experience for you to embrace these magical stories.
From €145 per person
The Hobbiton Movie Set Tour from Auckland begins as soon as you get collected from Aukland CBD, and from here on is where the magic kicks in. Enjoy a two-hour drive across the stunning South Aukland location, and the drive will arrive at Waikato. While you travel by car there are some breathtaking photo opportunities to take advantage of.
Your next stop will include a visit to the Shire’s Rest Cafe, as the name suggests you’ll be able to have a rest while enjoying some tasty food and drink. Whether you’re a Lord of The Rings superfan or someone just starting out, you’ll be certain to find a keepsake available at the Hobbiton Gift Shop here.
Next up will be where you’ll climb aboard The Hobbiton bus where you’ll enjoy a two-hour journey to explore The Hobbit Village. Experience the Hobbit Holes where good food and a sit by a warm hearth are an absolute must. Once you’ve explored where our first Frodo and Bilbo Baggins encounters occurred, your tour guide will show you around The Mill before taking you to see the picturesque Double Arched Bridge by The Shire. A wealth of photo opportunities you won’t find anywhere else reside here, so it’s recommended to keep your camera close by.
Finally, you might like to pay a visit to The Green Dragon Inn for a drink or two.
