Lie to the west of Rotorua in lush Waitomo farmland . On arrival enjoy a guided tour through the World-renowned Waitomo Caves – the ageless Stalactites & Stalagmites, Cathedral Cavern plus the unforgettable boat ride through the Glowworm Grotto.
The second part of the day is spent at Hobbiton; the movie set location for Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit films, near the town of Matamata. Spend an informative 2 hour tour around the movie set location. Stand under the party tree, walk past the Hobbit holes, imagine yourself amongst the characters. Nestled deep in the rolling hills of the Waikato, this location was chosen for its unblemished landscape. Bilbo Baggins was no typical hobbit, he did not want adventure, but you will have to come and see why he was so reluctant to leave the comfort of The Shire. At the conclusion of your journey you get a special treat in the Green Dragon Inn where you will receive a local shire ale, cider or ginger beer.
Recommend that you wear comfortable walking shoes and take a warm jacket.
