Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata, North Island of New Zealand

Share/Bookmark

New Zealand has become synonymous with the Middle-earth of JRR Tolkien’s famous books since the release of the blockbuster Lord of the Rings film trilogy, directed by New Zealander Sir Peter Jackson. On the most picturesque private farmland you can visit the Hobbiton Movie Set from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies in a fascinating two-hour guided tour. Due to copyright, all the intricately constructed movie sets around the country were dismantled after filming, but Hobbiton’s owners negotiated to keep their hobbit holes, which have been completely rebuilt for the filming of The Hobbit.
