Te Puia, Rainbow Springs and Agrodome Day Tour with Hobbiton Movie Set (Rotorua to Auckland)
Get up close to Māori culture and New Zealand's natural wonders, then take a journey into Middle-earth all in one day!
Your full-day tour begins with a morning sightseeing tour around three of Rotorua's iconic visitor attractions. Visit the cultural centre at Te Puia and gain an insight into Māori traditions and ways of life, before entering a geothermal wonderland of impressive geysers and boiling mud pools.
See New Zealand's agricultural industry in action with a sheep-shearing display and sheep dog trials at the Agrodome. Then, visit Rainbow Springs, a nature park which showcases native flora and fauna including the famous New Zealand kiwi.
Following the show, enjoy a scenic drive across the Kaimai Ranges to the picturesque 1,250-acre farm near Matamata, where scenes from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies were filmed. Take a guided tour and learn how this working farm was transformed into The Shire from Middle-earth. Your guide will show you Hobbit holes, the Green Dragon Inn, the Mill and many other structures from the movies. After your Hobbiton Movie Set tour, continue your journey to Auckland.
