Flying to the Shire

Fly My Sky have announced package deals from Auckland to Hobbiton using their BN Islanders to fly passengers from Auckland to Matamata whereupon they are met by a shuttle and taken to Hobbiton for the tour before being returned to Matamata airport for the return flight to Auckland. The return package costs $399 for the return fare including flight, shuttle and tour. 

Fly My Sky's website describe as follows; 

Your magical and classic aircraft flight across the beautiful natural New Zealand landscape will take you to Hobbiton in just over 30 minutes from Auckland Airport. Your flight is in a UK built Britten Norman Islander, it has two engines and has continued to be built over 60 years to fly to country and island areas around the world. Upon arriving at Matamata airport, you will be taken on a private shuttle to Hobbiton™ where your guided tour will start. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be taken by private shuttle to Matamata airport and flown back to Auckland.

From Matamata, you’ll travel through a landscape of lush farms and then take a guided tour of the 12-acre (4.8-ha.) Hobbiton™ Movie Set, exploring everything from hobbit holes to gardens and the Green Dragon Inn. With free time to shop and explore, this tour includes all transport between Auckland Airport and Hobbiton™ and is limited to 10 people per flight to ensure personalized service.

Our safe aircraft will fly you to and from Hobbiton™, comfortably low to see the sights of natural New Zealand, beating the traffic and lengthy bus rides, meaning you will be back in Auckland in time to enjoy the rest of your day, rather than confined on a bus all afternoon!

Our package tours run twice daily departing from Auckland airport. Please note: pre-booking your tour is essential. Our tours can sell-out well in advance so please pre-book to avoid disappointment.
