A Hobbiton Movie Set Tour will transport you to the peaceful region of Middle-Earth where Bilbo Baggins lived and that famous quest for the ring began.
Imagine your first glimpse of the Shire is from the air, looking down at the carpet of rolling green pasture dotted with sheep and cattle, then the hobbit holes and laneways of the picturesque little village unfold below you. It's the perfect way to discover the magic of Hobbiton.
Aerius Helicopters will fly you to the Hobbiton Movie Set as one of the many extraordinary experiences they offer. Leaving from Tauranga, it's a convenient half-day trip and you get to enjoy spectacular mountain and forest views on the way.
From the moment we land, you'll be blown away by the attention to detail on the Hobbiton set, from the brightly painted doors, carved letterboxes and garden tools to the old oak Party Tree standing in the Party Field. It's all there. Sandyman's Mill stands on the edge of the pond near the double arched bridge and you must visit Bag End, home to the heroic yet humble Baggins family.
Be sure to partake of a hobbit brew at the Green Dragon Inn before you leave. Carefully recreated, it's the perfect spot to relax by the fire, drink in hand and soak up the Hobbiton atmosphere.
The guides are really well informed with all the movie trivia a fan could want so together with the beautiful setting, it's no wonder Hobbiton remains one of our most popular, must-see attractions. Contact us at Aerius Helucopters any time for more Hobbiton movie set tour information.
