If you’re a Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit fan, you can make your fantasy of visiting hobbiton a reality by taking a guided tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata. Nestled in the heart of the Waikato region of New Zealand, experience Middle-Earth at its finest as you embark on a journey through The Shire. Get in touch with your inner-hobbit as you pass by rolling hills, Hobbit Holes and The Mill, before ending up at the world-renowned Green Dragon Inn. Here, you’ll get to sample an exclusive, specially brewed beverage and end your journey in true hobbit fashion.
The Hobbiton Movie Set guided tours are all-inclusive, with both English and Mandarin tours available as well as booklets provided in Spanish, Thai, Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese. The set is also wheelchair accessible and children ages 0-8 may join the tours for free, with a full-paying adult. The guided tour by itself is 2 hours long but it can also be paired with a number of other activities such as a festive buffet lunch, an evening banquet tour and/or a visit to the famous Waitomo Caves.
