It doesn’t matter if you’re an avid Lord of The Rings fan or you’ve never read the books or seen the films in your life – no matter who you are or where you come from, you’re going to love Hobbiton. Hobbiton is one of our favourite Bay of Plenty tours – an experience not to be missed.
Enjoy sweeping views of New Zealand farmland that look as though they’ve been plucked from a postcard. Stop for countless charming photo-opportunities – the friendly Hobbiton team are more than happy to take your camera for you and snap your family photos.
There’s just so much to love about Hobbiton tours. Here’s what one of our fans had to say about their Hobbiton tours experience:
“Be sure to take children with you on this trip as their delight will add to your pleasure. Incredible for memorial photos, Hobbiton is manicured to perfection.”
– Heather McMillan
An authentic escape from reality
Step into a world fueled by pure fantasy, where passionate people will whirl you around the hills of Hobbiton. You’ll feel as though you’ve stepped through a portal into the pages of The Hobbit or The Fellowship of The Ring. When the Hobbiton bus collects you from the cafe and welcome area, it’ll drive you up into the hills of Hobbiton. Somewhere along that short trip, you’ll feel as though you’ve left the modern world behind and traded it for a real-life fairy tale.
Whether you’re snapping photos for friends and family back home or you’re simply admiring the view, Hobbiton is nothing short of special. Prioritise this amazing experience when you book your next Tauranga day tour.
Perfect for a winter getaway
While bush and beach walks might be a bit miserable and muddy in the rain, there’s one place to wander where you’ll be free to enjoy gorgeous natural beauty up close without needing a pair of tramping boots! With its expertly manicured sets and scenery, Hobbiton is the perfect place to spend a chilly (and even wet) winter’s day outdoors.
At the end of your wonderful outdoor experience, you’ll be invited to enjoy the cosiest of settings for a drink. Hot and cold drinks will be on offer to you, and you’ll be free to sip them by a roaring fire at the Green Dragon Pub. Think dark wood and earthy textures of brown leather and parchment paper – the decor will have you feeling as though you dove straight into a Tolkien tome! Cosy up beside the fire in a leather armchair and sip your complimentary beverage while reflecting on the truly beautiful sights you’ve seen.
