Hobbiton New Zealand

New Zealand is the only place on the planet where Middle-earth literally comes to life. Visitors can see that the rich scenes from the movies are actually real places waiting to be visited and experienced first hand.

From lush green farmland and volcanic mountains, to snowy peaks and blue alpine lakes, Middle-earth is all real and Air New Zealand flies there daily.
