Overview

Camino Finisterre

From Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre in 6 days

During your Camino Finisterre you walk in 4 stages from Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre. Ideal for when you want to smell the pilgrim’s life or if you have not worn enough kilometers after Santiago. The total number of kilometers is 90 and the stages are about 25 km per day. Finisterre, which literally means the end of the world in Latin, was where the Apostle James first allegedly set foot on the Iberian Peninsula. When they arrive here, they often ritually burn their clothes, a tradition that is still alive today. That is to say, burning is no longer permitted in connection with the risk of forest fires. Instead there is a place where you can leave something of your pilgrimage route.

The sunset at the westernmost point of Europe is truly magical. We definitely recommend that you visit one of the many beaches of Finisterre. There are also several boats going out to sea every night. To watch the sunset from there. A unique and unforgettable experience to end your camino with.

Do you want to extend your camino to Finisterre and continue to Muxia? Then do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to arrange it for you!

FROM DAY TO DAY

Day 1 Arrival in Santiago de Compostela

After arriving at the airport, transfer to your accommodation in Santiago de Compostela. You may have some time to attend the daily pilgrim mass at the cathedral. The cathedral is located in a historic city center that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From here the next day you start Camino Finisterre, your pilgrimage to the end of the world.

Day 2 Stage Santiago de Compostela – Negreira 22 km

You start your pilgrimage with the stage from Santiago to Negreira, about 22 km. Your camino starts at the cathedral in the heart of Santiago de Compostela. From there you walk out of the city and get to know the countryside of Galicia. Along the way you will see several villages and the eucalyptus forests for which Galicia is so famous. Ponte Maceira, with its Romanesque bridge, is definitely worth a stop. The picturesque city of Negreira is the end of this stage.

Day 3 Stage Negreira – Olveiroa 32 km

(this stage can be split up)

Today you will leave Negreira behind and you will be on your way to your next destination, Olveiroa. However, the Finisterre camino allows you to climb the first Monte de Aro. There you have a beautiful view over the green hills of the province. On the way you pass small hamlets. And when the large reservoir of Ferrenza comes into view, you know that your final destination today is not far away.

Day 4 Stage Olveiroa – Cee 19 km

Today is finally the day, the coast is in sight. Your Finisterre camino starts today in Olveiroa and ends in the fishing village of Cee. On the way you will come to a fork. Pilgrims choose the route to Muxia or to Finisterre. Of course you follow the yellow arrows to Finisterre. A last section to the sea allows you to enjoy the beautiful views over the Costa del Morte. When you are downstairs you will soon arrive in Cee. Your final destination for today. Your feet can cool off in the sea …

Day 5 Stage Cee – Finisterre 16 km

Today already the last leg of the Camino Finisterre. Your day on the way to the end of the world starts in Cee. Along the bay of the village you go up again to the cliffs. The vistas are all breathtaking. Along the way you pass several beach bars for a fresh drink. And then the lighthouse of Finisterre looms in the distance. When you reach Finisterre you are not there yet. The camino will lead you about 3 km, slightly rising, to kilometer marker 0.0 at the Finisterre lighthouse. And there you can see with your own eyes why they call this the end of the world …

Day 6 Return journey

After breakfast you can enjoy Finisterre before your journey home. If you want to extend your Camino Finisterre with an extra day in Finisterre or Santiago de Compostela, let us know. It’s definitely worth it!
