Enjoy stories and titbits of filming from the Hobbit movie from people who were actually part of those epic days of filming! Step into experiences of the actors and hear the stories of what really happened!

  • stand on the shore of Laketown in the footsteps of the actors surrounded by the stunning scenery of Middle-earth scenery
  • Use Official Hobbit replica swords .
  • Experience the physical effort that actors and extras had to put in.
  • Re enact Hobbit scenes for epic photos
  • First hand stories of people who were there.
  • Gourmet Picnic Lunch(special dietary needs catered for)

As with our Lord of the Rings Tours, our local guide will use your camera from our secret photo spot to get fantastic photo or video of you so you can directly compare your experience with scenes in the movie. This great value tour will give you an insight into making a motion picture.
