Private tour from Rotorua to Auckland via Hobbiton Movie Set

This trip from Rotorua to Auckland includes the Hobbiton movie set tour. Departing from Rotorua at 8am, this is a wonderful way to get to Auckland and include a magical journey through Middle-earth to the Hobbiton Movie Set from “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” films.

On arrival at Shire’s Rest you embark on your Hobbiton movie set tour. This location is the largest “green set” in the world and the only part of the set remaining in New Zealand. You see 44 hobbit holes, the Mill and double arch bridge and the party tree. At this stunning location you can take a photo at the gate to Bilbo’s house, “Bag End”, looking out over the whole set to the hills in the distance.

A highlight of the tour is the opportunity to go inside a Hobbit hole. This interactive part of the tour gives you the chance to explore inside a Hobbit home! For example – try out a hobbit sized bed, sit at the dining table and check out the amazing detail that has gone into this creation.

The tour concludes with a visit to the Green Dragon Inn where you can enjoy a complimentary ale, cider or ginger beer.

Following the Hobbiton tour, enjoy the sumptuous buffet lunch in the Party Marquee which is fit for a Hobbit.

After lunch we drive north through lush Waikato dairy farms and over the Bombay Hills before arriving at your Auckland accommodation at approximately 3.45pm.
