Experience Middle Earth for yourself!
Travel to the farm selected by Peter Jackson as the setting for his Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movie masterpieces. Now a New Zealand must-do destination, your guided tour will bring to life scenes from the movies plus much more.

Escape into the enchanting world of JRR Tolkein's imagination on a trip to the Hobbiton Movie Set and farm.

Intricately recreated after being used as a film set for both the Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, this tour will take you to another world set deep in New Zealand farming countryside.

Whether you have read the books, seen the movies, or neither at all - this is one day you won't forget.

Our expert guide will set the scene as we leave the Bay of Plenty region and climb over the Kaimai Ranges. Admire the amazing scenery of the Waikato region before arriving at 'The Shire's Rest' visitors centre where your Hobbiton experience begins.

Hobbiton Highlights:

  • Explore 44 Hobbit holes set across 12 acres of lush pasture and manicured gardens. You can even pop inside a doorway for a souvenir photo.
  • Learn inside tips from your specialist guide and get wrapped up in the fascinating stories they tell.
  • Make a visit to Bag End, the Party Tree, Gandalf's Cutting, The Mill House and more. For you movie buffs there are recognisable landmarks at every turn!
  • Cap off your tour with a complimentary ale, cider or ginger beer in the Green Dragon Inn where you can sit by the fire, admire the expert craftsmanship and imagine life as a hobbit!

Also included on the itinerary is a quick visit to a kiwifruit orchard to see how this quintessential New Zealand icon is grown.

After a great day out we will guarantee you are back at the port in plenty of time to board your ship, taking with you lots of wonderful memories from your tour with us into New Zealand's heartland!
