“In the heart of New Zealand, you can step into the lush pastures of the Shire™, as featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.”
On the most picturesque private farmland you can visit the Hobbiton Movie Set from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies in a fascinating two-hour guided tour. The set has been completely rebuilt for The Hobbit and will remain as it was seen in these films and The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies. our tour starts with a drive through the picturesque 1,250 acre sheep farm with spectacular views across to the Kaimai Ranges. Your guide will escort you through the twelve acre site recounting fascinating details of how the Hobbiton Movie set was created.
The Hobbit holes, Green Dragon™ Inn, Mill and other structures created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films can be viewed and you will see how this beautiful piece of Waikato farmland was transformed into The Shire from Middle-Earth. Tours Depart daily from The Shire's Rest Cafe.
All is perfect and as it should be. However we had to come twice since sold out for the day before, so better book online. Little minus: it's a guided tour and the guide will push u through in about 90min .:.
It's like walking through another world, an alternate dimension, a fantasy land that is too perfect to exist in the real world. If you don't take pictures, you mind be convinced it was only a dream. And the complimentary beer from Green Dragon is excellent.
