Your Explorer

You can choose to incorporate this tour as part of a self drive tour, or coach transfers can be arranged to pick you up from either Auckland or Rotorua. This essential stop for every Lord of the Rings fan allows a visit to the actual Hobbiton village from the movie trilogies.

The tour starts with a drive through a 1,250 acre working sheep farm. The Hobbit Holes, Green Dragon Inn, Mill and other structures created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films can then be viewed. See how this beautiful piece of Waikato farmland was transformed into The Shire from Middle Earth.

A tour guide escorts the clients through the 10 acre site while recounting fascinating details on how the Hobbiton movie set was created. At the end of the tour enjoy a sample bespoke beverage at the Green Dragon Inn. Relax in hand-crafted leather chairs in front of a crackling open fire and take in the view across the lake to the mill and Bag End.

Following the tour, you will be transported to the Matamata i-site office where your farmstay hosts will collect you and take you to your traditional New Zealand farm. Enjoy a homecooked dinner and breakfast, bask in the glory of a lie in as you make the most of the late check out options and savour the morning tea offered before your departure.
