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.
