This Is How Far Sam And Frodo Walked In 'Lord Of The Rings' Trilogy
If the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy is about one thing, it's about walking.
That's all anyone ever does in those movies. Sure, there are some battles and heartfelt moments from time to time, but it's mostly a couple of short, hairy dudes strolling through Middle-earth.
Seriously, rewatch "The Two Towers" and tell me, with the exception of Helm's Deep, that whole damn movie isn't about putting one foot in front of the other.
If you don't believe me, take Randall's word for it.
Since there were no Fitbits in the Shire, someone to decided to figure out exactly how much walking Frodo and Sam did in the three films.
All in all, the whole journey is estimated to have been 1,350 miles. That amounts to 440 hours of walking.
No wonder Gollum had a nervous breakdown after only a portion of all that walking.
