Get Down to Middle Earth at the Quaint Prancing Pony Pub!
Visitors to Bree would be remiss without a stay in this charming, inexpensive bed-and-micro-brewery. With hostel-style accommodations that are only occasionally hostile, you'll find yourself right at home with theme rooms like, "Rustic Relaxation," "Prostitute's Paradise," "Barn Beauty," and the "Storage Stateroom." Enjoy home-brewed libations in pint and-- for our height-challenged guests-- half-pint sizes, the true micro-brew.
Enrich Your Artistic Side with the Rivendell Architecture Tour!
Explore gracious sinewy palaces, gazebos, and porticoes in this tour of this breathtaking Elven city. It's like nothing you've ever seen before. And yes, we know it bears a remarkable resemblance to the art nouveau artistic period around early 1900s Europe. But the Elves did it first. No, really.... Really.
Hike the Misty Mountains!
Looking for awesome views and a little action? You won't want to miss hiking Hithaeglir! Also called the Misty Mountains, here you'll encounter a wide variety of terrains and get a birds-eye view of the Great River, Anduin. Have fun in the snow with assorted winter sports. Picnic lunch is provided. Guests will need to bring their own second-breakfast.
Get Deep with the Mines of Moria!
While in the Misty Mountains, you'd be remiss to not to make this Mine yours for a few hours. Explore historic tombs of important dwarf leaders. Enjoy a brisk run through scenic underground palaces. Check out Durin's Bridge and meet hot locals just burning to share a sizzling good time. Maybe even lose yourself-- or your traveling companions-- for a while. Guaranteed, you'll never forget it!
