The One Wiki to Rule Them All

The Undying Lands were a realm inhabited by Ainur and Eldar. The area included the continent of Aman and the island of Tol Eressëa. The ocean Belegaer separated the Undying Lands from the western shores of Middle-earth. With very few exceptions, only immortal beings were allowed to live in this realm, which gave rise to its name.

History[]

Eldar Days and Second Age[]

Originally, mortals were allowed to trade with those from Valinor in the Undying Lands, but were forbidden to sail west beyond the sight of Númenor. However, in SA 3319 (Second Age), Sauron deceived Ar-Pharazôn, the King of Númenor, that the ruler of the Undying Lands would be granted immortality. To prevent the king's invasion, Ilúvatar destroyed Númenor beneath the ocean and set the Undying Lands forever beyond the reach of mortal Men. Elves were still permitted to sail across the sea to the Undying Lands, if they chose to (which most did).[1]

Third Age[]

In TA 3021, Círdan the Shipwright accompanied Elrond, Galadriel, and Gandalf, the Keepers of the Rings, on a voyage to the Undying Lands, where they intended to remain. They were also joined by Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, Hobbits who were known for bearing the One Ring. They were among the very few mortal beings to be allowed passage to the Undying Lands.[2]

Fourth Age[]

Eventually, Samwise Gamgee, another Hobbit of the Shire, and the Dwarf Gimli along with his friend, Legolas, made the journey to the Undying Lands after the demises of Sauron and Saruman. It is unknown how Manwë took to Gimli’s arrival to Valinor, as he would have killed Eärendil for coming to there uninvited, and only spared him because he came on behalf of Elves and Men.
