How Far Frodo And Sam Actually Walked In "The Lord Of The Rings" Trilogy

Turns out it was pretty damn far.

Imgur user mattsawizard worked out the distance Frodo and Sam travelled to get from Bag End all the way to Mount Doom.

Comparing the distance with locations in our world gives a sense of how just how far the duo travelled. Here's the breakdown:

Hobbiton to Bree

Bree to Rivendell

Rivendell to Moria

Lorien to Amon Hen

Amon Hen to the Black Gate

Black Gate to Minas Morgul

Cirith Ungol to Mount Doom

With a total distance of 1,350 miles and 440 hours of walking time, that's the same as trekking from London to Niš, Serbia.

And for Americans, that's the equivalent of walking from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas.

They must have been extra grateful for that lift home.
