Explore two of the most well-known places in New Zealand in one day! After leaving your Auckland hotel you will travel by minibus to the south of the island. During this day of discovery you can enjoy the following activities:

  1. Waitomo Cave visit

First you will reach Waitomo to embark on a guided tour of the inside of the region's stunning caves. Then hop aboard a small boat for the best view of the magnificent ceiling which twinkles with the lights of thousands of glow-worms which live in caves. This natural spectacle is a truly magical moment!

  1. Hobbiton, Hobbit village from Lord of the Rings

We continue the guided tour through the green hills of New Zealand, and arrive in Hobbiton, one of the best-known film sets in the world! You are immediately plunged into the world of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. With 44 Hobbit holes, The Mill, double arch bridge, Party Tree, and Green Dragon Inn, this Hobbit village is world famous!

This authentic film set allows you to experience life in The Shire, before we return you back to your hotel in Auckland.
