Situated about an hour and a half from the Port of Tauranga lies one of the most famous movie sets in the world – Hobbiton. Your Hobbiton day tour won’t disappoint and you’ll have to pinch yourself to believe you are actually here!
From the first epic movie, The Hobbit, all the sets remain the same through the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies. Our hosts love it so much if they could turn into Sir Peter Jackson’s characters they would!
On this exclusive Hobbiton tour you will see and visit:
- Hobbit holes, these comfy little dwellings dug into the side of a hill are the place where some of the most famous characters got to put their feet up, and rest their weary heads
- The Green Dragon Inn – the country casual meeting place which you get to visit and indulge in a little hobbit tipple on the house
- The Mill – said to be inspired by J.R.R Tolkien’s Sarehole Mill in his hometown of Birmingham it plays a key role in the Shire
- The arched bridge, superbly designed structures and gardens.
We’re amazed they don’t make you dress up and start taking your place on set – lights, camera, action!
You begin your Hobbiton day tour to magical middle earth at the stunning Kaimai ranges – some of the most picturesque landscapes you will ever see – nature’s best on offer.
You will feel your anticipation build once you get your first peek of your favourite sets of the movie – what a sight for majestic sore eyes the Hobbit holes are, The Mill, The Green Dragon Inn … you’ll feel your inner child or actor just bursting to come out!
