Explore two marvelous worlds of otherworldly sights in one day: the Waitomo Glowworm Caves and “Hobbiton”, one of the actual filming locations for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and the Hobbit Trilogy. Departing from Auckland, your first stop will be the famous Waitomo Glowworm Cave, a natural wonder that hundreds of thousands of tourists, both local and foreign, visit every year. Take that incredible boat ride that takes you through the cave, allowing you to view the splendid sight of thousands of native glow worms. Their bio-luminescent light lends an ethereal sight all over the cave. After enjoying the boat ride and your lunch in Waitomo, you head to the Shire Cafe and Hobbiton, where you'll enjoy a tour of the very same sets and scenery where the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit trilogies were filmed. Feel like a true native of Middle Earth as you visit the Hobbit holes and the charming scenery straight out of the books. Bring home incredible memories as you are safely transported back to your accommodations in Auckland at the end of your tour.
