Receive custom virtual postcards when you reach certain milestones along the route.

Each postcard contains interesting information about the location. 10 postcards are waiting for you along the Journey Through Middle Earth route.


Plant real trees as you progress

Climate change is harming our planet, but if we all make a small change, we can make a big impact. By taking part in our challenges, we will plant a real tree for every 25% of the Journey Through Middle Earth challenge you complete, helping sequester carbon dioxide in the future.

By the end of the challenge, you will have planted 4 trees. Imagine what we can achieve as a community!
