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.

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!

Hobbiton - New Zealand

This authentic Lord of the Rings location allows you to dream away and become a hobbit for a day. The ever present New Zealand sheep are natural size, though...

Hobbiton New Zealand Movie Set Tour // Day 13 Honeymoon

Day 13 of Honeymoon and we made a super last minute decision to take the drive up north in our Wilderness campervan to visit Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata New Zealand. It was absolutely one of the best random road trips we could have taken. Learning how they built and up kept this piece of land for the movies Lord of the rings and the Hobbit, to now a tourist location is amazing. Definitely a must see.

'Hobbit Land', New Zealand's North Island

New Zealand's rugged scenery was the location for much of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit films, but it was a 1,250 acre working sheep farm on North Island that became Hobbiton, the home of the hobbits in JRR Tolkien's fantasy land, Middle Earth.
A guided tour takes fans around the village, home to Bilbo Baggins, Frodo and Samwise Gamgee. Fans can peer into Hobbit holes and see the Hobbits' favourite drinking hole, the Green Dragon Inn, where Bilbo Baggins meets Thorin Oakenshield before they set off on their adventure to reclaim the ring.
The transformation from farmland to fictional village for Peter Jackson's film adaptation wasn't an easy one. For example, the old oak tree that overlooks Bag End (Bilbo Baggins's house) was brought in from Matamata, an hour's drive away, each branch numbered and furnished with artificial leaves (imported from Taiwan). There are plenty more secrets to be revealed along the way.

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!

❤️Aubrey was a Speech-Language Pathologist, Donnie was graphic designer, but we both had a dream to travel the world and experience cultures. After three years of being married and dreaming about if something like this great adventure would be possible, we decided to quit the rat race and take on the world. We sold everything we had, quit our jobs, and took off! We don't know how long we will get to do this, and we do have a goal of getting jobs in the UK eventually, but we are going to live it to the fullest while we can!

Air New Zealand Photoshoot on the Hobbiton Movie Set - Behind the Scenes

How did the art director feel about me using a mirrorless camera? What kind of problems did I have on set with costuming? What happened when one of the hobbit-kids freaked out because of the prosthetic feet? What were the challenges in the post-processing?

Join me on the Hobbiton Movie Set in New Zealand as I do a photo shoot campaign for Air New Zealand. I almost never do client work, but since NZ is my new home, I made an exception. Besides, I like Air New Zealand!
