What to Expect
Travel reference:

Experience the magic of Hobbiton with an entertaining half day tour, departing twice daily from Rotorua.

Leaving in either the morning or afternoon, your journey into Middle-earth begins with a scenic drive through the stunning Mamaku Ranges and into the Fitzgerald Glade. Along the way, your experienced driver guide will provide informative commentary and share stories about the region and its history.

Before long, you'll find yourself in the Waikato region and deep in the captivating landscapes of the Shire. Step into the lush pastures of the Shire, as seen in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.

Experience first-hand the unequivocal beauty of this former sheep farm, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance. Your guide will show you the intricate details and point out the most famous locations including the Hobbit Holes, The Mill and the world-famous Green Dragon Inn.

Once at the Green Dragon Inn, it is time to drink up! You'll be presented with a complimentary, exclusive Hobbit Southfarthing beverage to conclude your own Middle-earth adventure. After the tour is over, relax as you are returned to Rotorua by air-conditioned coach.
