Discover the movie magic at Hobbiton Movie Set featured in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies on a day tour from Auckland. Continue your day trip after lunch, with a visit to the world-famous Waitomo Caves, illuminated by thousands of glowworms. On arrival at the Hobbiton Movie Set, take a 2.5-hour guided walking tour of the movie set to see locations from the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, including the Hobbit Hole doors in the hillside. End your Hobbiton tour with a visit to The Green Dragon Inn including a complimentary beverage. After Hobbiton, drive to Waitomo where you’ll stop at Waitomo Homestead for lunch before continuing to Waitomo Caves. Known as one of New Zealand’s best natural attractions, take a boat ride through the glowworm grotto, marvel at thousands of magical glowworms, and become part of over 130 years of cultural and natural history. Discover an ancient world 30 million years in the making and marvel at Mother Nature’s light display. Explore the cave by foot before a boat ride, gliding silently through the starry wonderland of the Glowworm Grotto. Experience the serene ambiance as you enter this galaxy of tiny living lights. The glowworm (Arachnocampa Luminosa) is unique to New Zealand, making the Waitomo Glowworm Caves an absolute must-do. See thousands of these tiny creatures as they radiate their unmistakable luminescent light in a subterranean world. The Waitomo Glowworm Caves are made up of two levels. The upper chamber is dry and decorated with stunning, delicate cave formations, and the lower level consists of stream passages, glowworms, and the Cathedral, the tallest chamber in the cave. At the end of the day, your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Auckland hotel.
