Journey to Middle Earth, Lord of the Rings Tour

Do you believe in magic? Ever dreamed of following the footsteps of Frodo and his merry Fellowship?? Well, this Journey to Middle Earth, Lord of the Rings Tour will certainly immerse you in Tolkien’s fantasy land....

But of course, your journey will be a little easier than their's, my Precious...

Unlike Frodo and Sam, you won’t have to walk to Mordor disguised as orcs, you’ll be doing it in style! Flying into Auckland, you’ll be whisked to the village of Hobbiton where you can visit Bilbo Baggin’s house, “Bag End”, taste local Hobbit ale and bottle-feed bleating baby lambs! Over the next ten days, you’ll visit Peter Jackson’s WETA Studios workshop in Wellington, marvel at The Misty Mountains, experience Rohan, and enjoy a champagne picnic lunch in the magical Elven forest of Lothlorien.

And, as any Halfling will tell you, there's more to New Zealand than Hobbits!

After two luxurious nights at the Sofitel Auckland Harbour Hotel and exploring The City of Sails, it’s off to Hobbiton and Rotorua. In the Bay of Plenty, you’ll dolphin watch on a boat-trip before descending to the crater of New Zealand’s only active volcano.  Then it’s off to NZ’s capital, Wellington - and that’s only the North Island - there’s a whole other island to discover and we’ll fly you there… by eagle!

Landing in Christchurch, you’ll cross The Southern Alps, visit Edoras in a 4x4 with Kiwi tour guides and visit Lady Galadriel’s home of Lothlorien. And if that Hero’s Journey isn’t enough excitement for you, in Milford Sound, you can go ziplining or even take the Shotover Jet, Helicopter & WhiteWater Rafting Ultimate Adventure!

Any other adventure will surely dwarf in comparison to this Journey to Middle Earth, Lord of the Rings Tour. 

In Short:

  • Visit Hobbiton, Edoras, The Misty Mountains and Lorien
  • Attend Maori Culture and WETA Workshops
  • Descend to the crater of a volcano!
  • See Milford Sound by Shotover Jet, Helicopter & WhiteWater Rafting!
  • Journey to Middle Earth, Lord of the Rings Tour in luxury!
