Hobbiton New Zealand | Movie Set Tour

Today we had the opportunity to visit the Hobbiton New Zealand movie set. Kara and I are both BIG Lord of the Rings and Hobbit fans so when we started to plan our trip to New Zealand we knew we wanted to visit Hobbiton! While RVing around New Zealand we stopped close to the town of Cambridge, New Zealand where the Hobbiton movie set is located.

The entire area around Hobbiton makes you feel like you're in the movies! Hobbiton is surround by green rolling hills dotted with sheep. We were lucky enough to camp only a few minutes away from the movie set. It literally felt like we were camping in the Hobbiton movie set! After staying the night only a couple minutes down the road, we woke up early to take one of the first tours around the Hobbiton movie set. We usually don't pay for tours like this… However, the tour around the Hobbiton movie set was totally worth it!! If you're on the North Island of New Zealand you should definitely take the time to take a tour around Hobbiton!

Dinner at Hobbiton - New Zealand's Biggest Gap Year – Backpacker Guide New Zealand

Day 15: Today we are having dinner at Hobbiton, New Zealand! Join us on this night tour of Hobbiton to see Hobbiton by night as part of New Zealand’s Biggest Gap Year!

Yesterday - Day 14 -

Tomorrow – Day 16 –

About this video:

It’s Day 15 of New Zealand’s Biggest Gap Year where we are doing 365 days of 365 activities in New Zealand! Today’s activity is having dinner at Hobbiton as part of a night tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set!

We make our way to Matamata, a town in the Waikato region of New Zealand, where The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit was filmed. We arrive in Hobbiton and the Hobbiton Night Tour begins! We have a look at the Hobbit Holes and learn all the behind-the-scenes secrets of The Lord of the Rings movies on this tour around Hobbiton village.

Once we arrive at the famous Green Dragon Tavern in Hobbiton it is time to feast like a Hobbit! We have dinner at Hobbiton by sitting down to a grand banquet. However, Robin ends up over-doing it, so when we do the night segment of our Hobbiton Night tour, Robin is burping and farting his way around Hobbiton... Nevertheless, we get to see the magic of Hobbiton by night, which is pretty darn special.

Hi! We grew up on opposite ends of the United States in Texas and Ohio. Later in college, we met and got married in August of 2016. As poor newly weds and recent college grads, we moved to New York City to begin what we thought would be our long careers in finance. Only one year later, after accumulating over 2 million miles and points through travel hacking, we booked round-the-world business class tickets to over 40 countries for free. We quit our jobs, sold everything we owned, and began this once-in-a-lifetime adventure on August 27, 2018. Chad has always loved creating home videos to hold onto the memories we share while traveling, so we started this YouTube channel as a place to share our adventures with friends and family. We hope you'll join our journey to exciting countries and experiences around the world!
