Distance Frodo & Sam Walked Compared To US/Europe

May 27, 2015


This is a visual comparison of the approximately 1,350-mile (~2,172 km) trek Sam and Frodo traveled from Hobbiton to Mount Doom with the equivalent distances on maps of the United States and Europe. In the US, the same 1,350-mile journey would take you from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas. In Europe, the 440-hours of walking could get you from London to Niš in Serbia. For reference, I would not be able to walk that far. If it was my job to destroy the One Ring and I had to walk even ten miles I would dig a shallow hole in the woods and bury the ring, then call Gandalf and tell him the job was done.
