A fantastic mix of some of NZ’s most popular attractions which give this country its exceptional appeal for travelers: beautiful, untouched nature and wildlife at Sanctuary Mountain plus the most famous film location of “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” movies combined into one exciting, privately guided day tour!

After pick-up in Auckland at 8am and a beautiful drive from Auckland to Maungatautari / Sanctuary Mountain in the Waikato region of the North Island, let us show you another world of New Zealand’s environment in this magnificent ancient forest. It is the country’s most ambitious conservation project. The 3,400 hectare volcano, surrounded by the world’s longest predator-proof fence, contains a land as close to the pre-human New Zealand environment as is possible to find. We may listen to the birds’ songs and experience native wildlife in their natural habitat during an enriching guided bush walk.

After this highly-interesting walking tour, your journey continues to the Hobbiton Movie Set. An original setting of Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” movies lies in idyllic countryside with rolling green hills, sheep farms and wonderful views towards the Kaimai Ranges to the east. You will learn all about why this location was chosen as the location for Hobbiton, how it was made and which scenes were filmed here. You get to see the Hobbit Holes and Bag End, the Green Dragon Inn, the Mill and the famous Party Tree.

Return to Auckland after experiencing two very different but equally fascinating attractions all in one inspiring day.
