If you are a fan of the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings then no trip to New Zealand is complete without visiting the Hobbiton Movie Set. Join Bush and Beach to go ‘There and back again’. Our small group guided Hobbiton tours visit the outdoor set built for the Hobbit movies and you will stand by the gate of Bilbo’s house at Bag End as well as crossing the stone bridge by the Mill to go inside the Green Dragon Inn. You will have lots of time for photos around the set and learn from your guide about how the movies were made and get all the insider information about how the set was built and the stories behind certain scenes.
Bush and Beach run at least one daily return tour to the Hobbiton Movie set from Auckland, the Early Access tour has a few special extras over the Hobbiton Express tour and both tours offer a small group experience so you can have plenty of time for photos and to talk to the guides.
If you want to do a one way trip from Auckland to Rotorua or from Rotorua to Auckland visiting Hobbiton Movie Set on the way we can offer that as well, the details are in the relevant tours below.
One of our Partner tours on South Island also offers a tour to the iconic Mount Sunday where they filmed Edoras, the capital city of the Rohan people in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
With our private tours we can arrange a visit Hobbiton to suit your schedule and even offer a private guided tour of the set. You may also want to combine your private tour with doing something else on the way such as visiting Waitomo Caves, or being taken to your next hotel in Rotorua.
