Top 10 Movie Mistakes - The Lord of the Rings
What the coolest locations used in 'The Lord of the Rings' look like in real life
The entire Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, as imagined by Peter Jackson in the film adaption of the books , serves as a highly effective tourism advert for New Zealand. Having seen all the films, and being a bit of a Tolkien fan, it was inevitable that New Zealand would make it onto my list of places I must visit. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed all around New Zealand. Over real-world locations were used for key scenes, including Mordor, Hobbiton, Rivendell and more. The trilogy was filmed between October and December , with all three films shot at the same time over a period of over days. Many of the locations are still easily recognisable from the films, especially those heavily featuring the landscapes of the country. Others, especially those with a lot of digital effects, are much harder to recognise — plus, the passage of time has altered the appearance of landscapes as well.
As soon as you start to leave the cities in New Zealand it is completely obvious that this is Middle-earth. Any of the rolling green hills could be The Shire. Then you are in for some spectacular Lord of the Rings scenery as you approach the grand mountains and forests in the South Island. Now you can visit these locations on a road trip around New Zealand. We have only listed the Lord of the Rings locations that you can get to via hiking track, gravel road or sealed road, otherwise, you would need a helicopter to get to some of the more remote places.

Middle-earth is the fictional setting of much of British writer J. Tolkien 's legendarium. The term is equivalent to the term Midgard of Norse mythology , describing the human-inhabited world , that is, the central continent of the Earth in Tolkien's imagined mythological past. Tolkien's most widely read works, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings , take place entirely in Middle-earth, and Middle-earth has also become a short-hand to refer to the legendarium and Tolkien's fictional take on the world. Middle-earth is the north continent of Earth Arda in an imaginary period of the Earth's past    Tolkien placed the end of the Third Age at about 6, years before his own time ,    in the sense of a "secondary or sub-creational reality ". Tolkien's Middle-earth stories mostly focus on the north-west of the continent.
In writing his tales, Tolkien created an alternative mythic history for our own world. Here are the most important locations in the The Lord of the Rings and its backstory. At first Arda was flat, encircled by a great sea. Just east of Aman lies the elves' island of Tol Eressea. Middle-earth The realm of mortals. The name "Middle-earth" is a translation of the Old English "Middangeard"—the world beneath heaven and above hell. Most of the events in Tolkien's work take place in the northwestern region of Middle-earth.
