It may be a fantasy on screen, but in New Zealand, Middle-earth is far from fiction. When you travel through the heart of the country, you'll discover a picturesque world of emerald hills, rugged mountains, and magical forests.
Looking for a Tolkien-themed vacation? You're in luck. We're celebrating 15 years of Middle Earth travel with a list of 20 hobbit haunts you should visit.
Fitting all these destinations into your itinerary is a formidable challenge. But the sheer number of places Frodo, Biilbo & co have been mean a taste of Middle Earth can and should be added to just about any NZ journey. Talk to an experienced journey planner about how much of Middle Earth you want to experience while you're in New Zealand.
