Camino de Santiago to Finisterre

The Camino de Santiago to Finisterre is a route that departs from Santiago de Compostela to reach the Finisterre lighthouse, a place known in antiquity as the end of the world. This 6-day, 5-night journey is ideal for all those people who, after reaching Santiago de Compostela, want to continue walking or for all those who, without having made a previous pilgrimage, want to discover on foot, the impressive Costa da Morte.

The Camino de Finisterre is a route full of tradition and magic, whose origins predate Christianity itself. That is why, on the tour, in addition to enjoying the Atlantic Ocean and the intense green landscape of Galicia, you will have the opportunity to discover numerous legends and traditions considered pagan.

Upon your arrival in Finisterre you will be able to apply for the Fisterrana, the official certification that you have reached the “End of the World”.

    Day 1
    Arrival in Santiago de Compostela
    On the day of your arrival in Santiago de Compostela, a city listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, you will find many plans and places to visit. The visit to the Cathedral of Santiago, and the squares that surround it, is essential, although we also recommend other places such as the Mercado de Abastos and the Alameda.

    Another fantastic plan is to wander through the historic centre of Santiago. In its small streets you will find a wide range of traditional taverns, where you can enjoy Galician food and its exquisite seafood and wines.

    If you want to have time to enjoy all that the capital of Galicia has to offer, the ideal thing to do is that you spend two nights in the city. If you want, you can add an additional night in Santiago to your trip. Contact us for more information.

    Accommodation: Overnight in Santiago de Compostela.

    Day 2
    From Santiago de Compostela to Negreira
    The tour departs from the Plaza del Obradoiro, next to the Cathedral of Santiago. From there, you will advance through a natural environment of great beauty full of eucalyptus trees and pine trees.

    Along the way you will have the opportunity to visit various charming villages such as Sarela da Baixo, where you will find a viewpoint from which you can enjoy an excellent panorama with the towers of the Cathedral of Santiago in the background, or Trasmonte.
    The stage ends in Negreira, where you can visit the Pazo de Coton and the Chapel of San Mauro. We also encourage you to discover the legend behind the shield of the town hall building.

    Distance: 22 kilometres.

    Accommodation: Overnight in Negreira.

    Day 3
    From Negreira to Olveiroa
    Today you will enjoy one of the most beautiful days on the Camino de Finisterre. The tour will be immersed in thick oak and chestnut forests that extend through the valley of the River Xallas.

    At the end of the day, Monte Aro will give you beautiful views of this region of Galicia and the Fervenza Reservoir. The stage ends in the medieval village of Olveiroa, where you will find granaries more than 100 years old and some other places of interest such as the Church of Santiago or the Chapel of Santa Lucia.

    Distance: 33 kilometres.

    Accommodation: Overnight in Olveiroa.

    Day 4
    From Olveiroa to Cee
    This stage is especially emblematic because before your eyes will appear for the first time the wild Atlantic Ocean that bathes the Galician coast. Shortly after you start walking, in the village of Hospital, you will find the fork that separates the route that goes to Muxia and the one that goes to Finisterre.

    You must take the route that goes to Finisterre, to conclude this stage in Cee. The end of this day takes place in an old whaling town, where you will find two beaches to enjoy a pleasant afternoon on the Costa da Morte.

    Distance: 19 kilometres.

    Accommodation: Overnight in Cee.

    Day 5
    From Cee to Finisterre
    Today you will enjoy a pleasant day, walking by the sea. Along stretches dotted with pine trees and some cliffs on the route you can visit various fishing villages such as Corcubion or Sardineiro.

    The Camino de Finisterre ends at Cape Finisterre, where kilometre 0 is located. Therefore, as tradition dictates, once you arrive at the town, you must go to the precise point where the Romans thought the sun was dying. We suggest matching that moment with sunset, because the sunset from the cape is one of nature’s great spectacles.

    Distance: 16 kilometres.

    Accommodation: Overnight in Finisterre.

    Day 6
    Your last day of travel, you can take advantage to relax on the beach of Finisterre and to enjoy a tasty seafood dish. In the town, you will also find some recommended places of visit such as the End of the Earth Cemetery and the Castle of San Carlos.

    If you want to enjoy more days in this pleasant town you can add additional nights to your trip. You should also know that, without having to go back on the same road, from Finisterre you can continue to Muxia, another of the great pilgrimage destinations on the Costa da Morte.
