Green Isle

Tol Galen amid Adurant

The translated name of Tol Galen, the large river-island surrounded by the waters of the river Adurant at the southern end of Ossiriand. It was to this green island that Beren and Lúthien retired after their return from death, and during the time that they dwelt there it was known by the name Dor Firn-i-Guinar, the Land of the Dead that Live.
