Start your full-day tour of the Central North Island with visits to three of the top Rotorua visitor attractions.
Departing early morning from Rotorua, first stop is Te Puia where you will learn about local Maori traditions, culture and ways of life. From here you enter the Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley, home to shooting geysers and bubbling mud pools.
Afterwards, you'll travel through the picturesque countryside to reach the Agrodome. Here you will witness a live sheep-shearing demonstration and sheep dog trials, while getting to know more about agriculture and farming across New Zealand.
Next stop is Rainbow Springs nature park, where you will have the chance to get up close with New Zealand's iconic kiwi, as well as a huge range of other flora and fauna.
Cap off the tour in the Waikato region and deep in the captivating landscapes of the Shire from Middle-earth. Step into the lush pastures of the Shire and film set 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.
