WHAT TO EXPECT

Discover the 3 most famous attractions in the North Island during this full-day tour from Auckland. The tour starts with a journey to the magical and enchanting Hobbiton Movie Set. This picturesque, highly-elevated, 1250-acre farm boasts panoramic views with an idyllic setting. You'll get to see 44 Hobbit holes where The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit Movie Trilogies were filmed. Bring a camera!


Your expert guide will share stories from behind-the-scenes and will answer any questions you have about the set. We're sure you'll be fascinated as the magical world of Hobbiton comes to life. Take photos in front of the Hobbit holes, the Shire, the Green Dragon Inn to share with your friends! 

 

Next, the tour continues to the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. Here, you'll learn about the spectacular limestone formations (stalactites and stalagmites) during a boat trip through the Glowworm Grotto. This is known as one of New Zealand’s best natural attractions. You'll see thousands of magical glowworms and become part of 130 years of natural history. You'll get to discover Mother Nature’s light display as you glide silently through the starry wonderland of the Glowworm Grotto. The glowworm (Arachnocampa Luminosa) is unique to New Zealand, making the Waitomo Glowworm Caves a unique activity that you'll get to experience on this tour. 

 

The adventure continues to Rotorua to the world famous Te Puia, which is home to the famous Pōhutu geyser. During this tour, you'll learn about Māori culture, including art, people, stories, traditions, and architecture. You'll have time to walk around lush nature trails teeming with native birdlife and you may even spot the native flightless bird, the Kiwi! 


Throughout the day, you'll get to enjoy the stunning scenery as you journey off the motorways into the hinterland of New Zealand. All admission fees to the 3 attractions are included, as well as a café style lunch at The Shire's Rest.
