Hidden in the depths of the North Island, just a couple-hour-drive away from Auckland lies a portal to Middle Earth... Here, in the quiet town of Matamata, you can explore the gorgeous village of Hobbiton, the world-famous and magical Lord of The Rings Movie Set. You can kick-off your experience with a hotel pick-up in a comfortable mini-bus, where you will drive through the stunning Waikato countryside (the most extensive farming area in the world) on a fully guided journey. During the trip south, encounter stunning scenery, great photo opportunities, beautiful mountains and lush green grasslands. After the drive, you will arrive at the Alexander family sheep farm and Shire's Rest (the entrance to Hobbiton) where you can see thousands of sheep (There's more sheep than people in New Zealand!). Grab a bite to eat, get your coffee fix, or enjoy an ice cream while you get ready to explore the village-set. You'll step into the lush pastures of the Shire, visit 44 hobbit holes, see amazing gardens, hear the secrets and stories about the making of the movies and enjoy a cold beverage at the famous Hobbiton pub The Green Dragon Inn. After the tour, you will be guided back through the Alexander Family Sheep Farm for another stop at Shire's Rest for a spot of souvenir shopping and maybe a bite to eat before head back to Auckland. You'll be there and back again with zero hassles!
