InterCity Hobbiton and Waitomo Day Tour
2 of recent Zealand's preferred attractions are often found within the Central North Island: the Hobbiton picture Set and therefore the superb Waitomo Caves. currently, you'll see each of them at some point on one nice price InterCity day tour from the metropolis!
Sit back and revel in the plush rural scenery as you head south from Auckland central to a charming Middle-earth location: the non-public farm outside Matamata that has become known worldwide because of the motion-picture photography location for Hobbiton in Sir Peter Jackson's victory Lord of the Rings and imaginary creature picture trilogies.
Take a radio-controlled tour of the imaginary creature on the picture Set and find out about how this exciting film set was created in spectacular detail. You'll see Hobbit Holes (including Bilbo's house at Bag End), the Party Tree, and the inexperienced Dragon hostel, and listen to under-the-table secrets from filming.
when your tour, sit all the way down to lunch at the inexperienced Dragon Inn (included in your tour) and revel in a feast warranting Bilbo's birthday party!
Then cross the country to the territorial division of Waitomo and head underground into a world of stalactites, stalagmites, and twinkling lights: the Waitomo firefly Caves.
throughout your 45-minute tour of this natural wonder, you'll travel through underground tunnels and see large caverns made up of unimaginable stone formations. find out about how the caves were created over immeasurable years, and knowledge of the magic of an underground boat ride through the firefly grot - soaring mutely through the darkness whereas glowworms twinkle overhead.
when your Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves day tour, come back to the metropolis or still Rotorua.
