Stop at the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves and traverse through the underground limestone caverns that are home to fascinating rock formations. You’ll then cruise through the dark caverns on a tranquil boat ride beneath the twinkling blue glow of a thousand glowworms.

The magic continues at Hobbiton, where you’ll get to walk in the footsteps of Frodo and Gandalf at the Shire. The moment you set foot on the verdant green hills of this carefully preserved movie set, you’ll feel instantly transported into Middle Earth. Tour through the colorful Hobbit holes and lush gardens of the Shire, marveling at the minute details that bring this movie set to life, as featured in the Lord of the Rings films.
