Not too long after you announced your vows to each other, follow Bilbo Baggins and his dwarf companions through the breathtaking and tumultuous beauty of the real Middle Earth on this 9-day honeymoon adventure of New Zealand’s North and South Islands. From the lush valleys and emerald rivers, to the monstrous mountaintops, join the famous hobbit adventure through the real Middle Earth, found in indelible New Zealand.
Auckland – The City of Sails
Today you arrive in Auckland ready for an unforgettable adventure through New Zealand’s, rightfully, famous terrain. As you walk along the city’s edge the opulent water is calm from the sand’s edge to the horizon. The various harbors decorate the shoreline giving Auckland its nickname the “City of Sails.” Boats fill the vast ocean, their sails raised tall in the open sky catching the wind, gliding along the water, the welcoming scent of the cold sea rising in the air. The water splashes around the speeding boats, including some yachts used in the America’s Cup races. As the sun sets over the western shore you will settle in to a dining experience that everyone, including a hobbit, can enjoy.
