HOBBITON MOVIE SET TOUR

Join us and experience the real Middle-earth™ at the Hobbiton™ Movie Set, where, in the heart of the Waikato region, you can step into the lush pastures of the Shire™, as seen in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Fall in love with the Alexander family sheep farm, just as acclaimed director Sir Peter Jackson did, as you journey through the unequivocal beauty of the land, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance. Your guide will then escort you around the set, showing the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made. You will be fully guided around the 12 acre set; past Hobbit Holes™, the Mill and into the world-famous Green Dragon™ Inn, where you will be presented with a complimentary, exclusive Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverage to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure. Transport to Hobbiton is not included.

This is the ultimate craft beer experience over a leisurely afternoon. Starting your tour with a scrumptious beer and food pairing that will leave your taste buds tingling. You will get an exclusive behind the scenes look at a local working brewery and hear from the craft master. Not only that but three other craft breweries or brew bars await ready and willing to showcase their most popular beers. The common denominator is plenty of free tastings! At your final destination of the day you are welcome to hunker down for a hearty meal (not included in tour cost) or return to base.

WAIKATO KAYAK GLOWWORM TOUR
Paddle along the southern edge of Lake Karapiro, over the old submerged Horahora Dam that produced electricity for the early Waihi goldfields. Learn the history of the Horahora village and enjoy the twilight and silence of being on the water as the day draws to an end. As night arrives over the lake , paddle slowly up the Pokaiwhenua Stream and through the canyon carved out by water over many hundreds of years. Native ferns & trees drape over you, bird life is all around. When darkness falls we float silently back downstream, being guided by the glow worms on either side sparkling like Christmas lights.
