If you’re looking for fantastic places to visit, follow the trail to some of film’s most epic journeys. One of the things that makes adventure films great is getting introduced to fantastic places you would otherwise not have known about. Films have taken us from the deep recesses of Earth to the outermost areas of space using green screens and other advanced technological techniques employed by filmmakers. However, there are films that used real places as a backdrop to some of the most epic film journeys ever made. Consider visiting these unbelievably amazing places on your next vacation:

Middle Earth

January 3 of each year celebrates the birth of one of the most prominent literary figures of high fantasy, John Ronald Ruel Tolkien, more commonly known as J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and The Silmarillon, among other books concerning the epic story of Middle Earth. Follow in the footsteps of the fellowship of the ring when you visit various places in New Zealand. Explore Kaitoke Regional Park, the enchanting land of Rivendell where Arwen Evenstar dwells, or pass solemnly by Mount Owen, recognized by Gimli son of Glóin as Dimrill Dale, where the fellowship rested after their escape from Moria where Gandalf the Grey fell in battle against the Balrog.

When the holidays come rushing in, the travel bug bites and gnaws on our imaginations. The usual options for travelers at this time generally revolve around two choices: the Siren’s call of the rolling waves on white sand beaches for those who prefer the heat and the temptation of fresh powder for the adrenaline-pumping, winter sports enthusiasts. If you want a break from the usual vacation spots, here are some wonderfully weird but ultimately exciting activities and travel destinations:

If you prefer warm places, you might enjoy traveling to hell and back. Located in Turkmenistan, the 60-meter wide and 20-meter deep Darvaza Gas Crater, also known as Hell’s Door, attracts tourists from all over the world. You won’t find devils carrying their tridents around the crater, though, because this attraction was accidentally made by Soviet geologists back in 1971. They discovered that this cavern was rich in natural gas, and to prevent the poisonous gas from escaping, they decided to light up the crater until the gas burned out – the crater hasn’t stopped burning since.
