Tour Description

Walk the Finisterre Way from Santiago to Finisterre & discover the End of the World

Santiago de Compostela can be the final stage of the Camino de Santiago, or the beginning of a new route towards the sea. The Finisterre Way, or Camino de Finisterre (known as “Fisterra” in Galician language) is much more than a simple prolongation of the Camino de Santiago, as this route comes from the Roman and Celtic tradition.  During these periods, Finisterre was considered to be the End of the World. In fact, this is the origin of the term: Finis (end) terre (world).

Check in Santiago de Compostela

Santiago - Negreira 21 km

Today you will leave Santiago and, on your way to Negreira, you will walk through pine and eucaliptus forests, small hamlets and roman bridges. It is considered to be one of the less strenuous walking days.

Negreira - Santa Mariña 21 km

You will walk around Serra de Castelo and Monte do Aro, amazing landscapes to photograph

Santa Mariña - O Logoso 16 km

This is the most special stage. Why? Because of the sea view in the distance, for the first time!

O Logoso - Cee 18 km

Walk across the San Pedro Mártir Hill and don´t forget to visit its small chapel and its water fountain with healing properties for rheumatism, foot and wart pain.

Cee - Finisterre 12 km (+3km de subida al faro)

The Camino in this stage takes you along the Atlantic coast while enjoying the high cliffs that give its name to its coast, the wild beaches and the incredible views it offers. What to do when you get to Finisterre? Undoubtedly, visit the Lighthouse, where it is considered the End of the World. Enjoying the sunset with the views it offers is the greatest pleasure of all this Camino!

Standard category

1* and 2* hotels

These hotels offer private rooms with private bathrooms as well as other additional services that may vary depending on the type of category: restaurant service, television, room service, dry cleaning, ironing service, etc. It is common to stay in this type of hotels in the cities along the Camino.

Hostels and pensions

These accommodations have the necessary services to cover the basic needs of cleanliness and rest at a more moderate price than the hotels . Officially, hostels and guesthouses are 1-star accommodations. However, this rating should not be taken into account when evaluating the level of comfort and quality of their services.

Superior category

3*, 4* and 5* Hotels

Typical in the large cities along the El Camino. They can be family hotels or international hotel chains. They are perhaps the most expensive alternative, although you can find different price levels according to the category and services they offer.

Hoteles Boutique

These are small accommodations characterized by having few rooms and providing personalized attention. They are hotel concepts with a modern style and their own character. They can be between 1* and 5*.

National Paradores of Spain

This is a public hotel chain that manages a network of almost 100 charming hotels distributed throughout the Iberian Peninsula. The establishments are located in buildings of cultural interest and great historical value, and stand out for their scenic, artistic or natural interest (including ancient palaces, monasteries, fortresses, convents, fortresses…).

Rural tourism lodgings

Rural houses, pazos, inns, rectories, castles, monasteries, farmhouses… These are historic buildings of great architectural and patrimonial value. So much so, that this characteristic sometimes gives them the status of “luxury accommodation” despite of the fact that they are often rustic constructions in which natural stone and wood predominate.
