Here’s ultimate adventure for those that love to play and explore together, or just those who believe in Hobbits! Middle Earth’s Treetops Lodge & Estate up-grades you to a Treetops Luxury Villa for three nights. Then includes two award winning Signature Experiences in their 2500 acres of native wilderness, and a gourmet picnic lunch at the stunning Bridal Veil Falls. Plus, a thrilling private two-hour guided tour of nearby Hobbiton, the amazing movie set created for the J.R.R. Tolkien Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogy. 

Treetops famed hospitality means that every day there’s an invitation to pre-dinner drink and canapés followed by a five-course menu; outstanding breakfasts, of course – and organic and 100% pesticide free where possible. The first two on-site adventures included in daily schedules is typically a 4-WD Estate Safari to see Treetops’ wide range of wild and farmed animals and produce, or, perhaps, the Maori Food Trail or Wild Food Cooking School, an amazing insight into how Maori use native plants, flowers and how to use them for flavour or medicinal purposes.

Then it’s off to the bucolic setting of The Shire in Middle Earth. After a drive through a picturesque sheep farm with spectacular views across to the Kaimai Ranges, there’s private guidance through the 12-acre Hobbiton Village site, recounting fascinating details about how its quaint houses and other buildings were designed and constructed. Hobbit Holes, The Mill and the Green Dragon Inn are included in this special full tour of the iconic site: transfers are not included but can be by Treetops helicopter, chauffeur or self-drive.

There’s more included. One day, Treetops provides Gourmet picnic lunches and guidance for a gentle family hike to the estate’s astonishing Bridal Veil Waterfall. For a supplement, there’s even lessons in archery, fly-fishing and a helicopter flight to see a genuine live volcano.  

Two children under 12 can stay and eat free if sharing in parent’s villa: the option of adding an interconnecting villa for up to 2 people is just 50% of the standard winter Treetops Luxury Villa rate (Spring Escape)*
