When someone says New Zealand, many people think “Lord of the Rings”, and if you are visiting the  North Island, you can get up close and personal with the magical world of Hobbiton. Hobbiton, located in Matamata, is the movie set for The Shire in the Lord of the Rings franchise.Book your private transfer to Hobbiton Movie Set and get lead into the magical world that serves as a backdrop for the beginning of the movies, driving through classic New Zealand farmland, looking out over the Kaimai Ranges, exploring the iconic house of Bilbo Baggins, and having a drink in the Green Dragon Inn. These tours are an absolute must if you are a fan of the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies, but even people who have not seen the movies or read the books will be inspired by the lush green landscape and movie set that blurs the lines between reality and fiction.
