    Walk the Atlantic Way, from Ferrol to Finisterre

    Experience the magic of the Camino de Santiago from coast to coast. From Ferrol to Finisterre, passing through Santiago de Compostela. 

    The Atlantic Way combines two of the most emblematic Xacobean routes: the English Way and the Finisterre Way. Through this itinerary you will be able to obtain the two certificates of the Way: the Compostela and the Finisterriana. 

    You will discover the Way that medieval pilgrims traveled overseas, crossing the sea until they reached Ferrol. In addition, you will end up back in the ocean at its most iconic point: the Finisterre Lighthouse, symbol of the Celtic, Roman and Xacobean tradition. 

    An unforgettable experience, full of history, traditions, spirituality and legends that take us into the culture of Galicia. From Galiwonders we will design an unforgettable trip for you.

    Day 1: Arrival

    Arrival in Ferrol, starting point of the English Way.

    Day 2: Ferrol – Pontedeume (30 km)

    The first stage is the longest, so it is possible to divide it in two and stay in Neda.
    We recommend a visit to the port of Ferrol before starting the route, as it is one of the most emblematic of Galicia. On the other hand, already on the Camino, we recommend a stop at the Monastery of San Martiño de Neda.

    Day 3: Pontedeume – Betanzos (21 km)

    This is a coastal stretch, with very pleasant views.
    Before reaching Betanzos, we recommend a stop at the Church of San Pantaleón de las Viñas, one of the most iconic points of the English Way.

    Day 4: Betanzos – Bruma-Mesón do Vento (28 km)

    This is a quiet stage, through rural areas. Some sections run parallel to the river.
    The road combines asphalted areas with forest tracks.

    Day 5: Bruma-Mesón do Vento – Sigüeiro (24 km)

    The route will take us through small rural areas, leaving behind chapels and crosses.

    Day 6: Sigüeiro – Santiago (16 km)

    The last stage is the shortest, only 12 km. This will allow us to reach Santiago with enough time to enjoy the city. From Sigüeiro you can already feel the presence of the capital in the distance.
    Once in Santiago, do not forget to go to the Pilgrim’s Office with your Credential to request the Compostela.

    Day 7: Santiago - Negreira (21 km)

    The first stage of this trail has little difficulty. On your way to Negreira, you will walk through pine and eucalyptus forests, small villages and Roman bridges.

    Day 8: Negreira - Olveiroa (33 km)

    As it is the longest route (32 km), we offer you the possibility of a transfer for the last 10 km. This way, you will walk through the Serra do Castelo and Monte do Aro, incredible landscapes to photograph.

    Day 9: Olveiroa - Cee (18 km)

    This stage is the most special one. Why? You can see the sea in the distance, for the first time!

    The route goes through rural areas until you reach Cee, one of the fishing villages of the Costa da Morte.

    Day 10: Cee - Finisterre (15 km)

    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!

    Day 11: Finisterre

    Departure from the hotel in Finisterre and end of services.
