Camino Finisterre Guided Tour.

Walk the Camino Finisterre Guided Tour to the beautiful Atlantic Coast of Galicia, the ‘Edge of the World’! The quiet Finisterre Camino is a unique route as it is the only one starting in Santiago de Compostela. This Camino trail is said to be older than Christianity with pre-Christian pilgrims following the trail to where the sun ‘dies’ and the land ends.

This fantastic Camino Finisterre Guided Tour tour takes your group to small villages and hamlets, across remote farmland and unspoiled landscapes. You will walk to the sea cliffs of the westernmost point in Spain, to Cape Fisterra (Finisterre in Spanish).

This beautiful region is known as the ‘Costa da Morte’, a land full of fascinating traditions, rich heritage, delicious seafood, and spectacular scenery.From Fisterra, the group will continue their Camino journey to the fishing village of Muxia, home to the picturesque sanctuary of ‘Our Lady of the Boat’. Craggy coves and pristine sandy beaches will amaze you on this trail along the stunning coastline of Atlantic Galicia.

In this article, you can read more about Muxia and its history and traditions.

Get your ‘Finisterrana’ pilgrim certificate in Fisterra and your ‘Muxiana’ pilgrim certificate when you arrive in Muxía.

Elmarie, South Africa - March
"I made use of Camino Ways for organizing at least four hikes or parts of the Camino de Santiago that I have completed during the past few years. All of the arrangements were done excellently and nothing unexpected happened. It really contributed to me having the best time of my life."
Luna, United States - September
Luna, USA - Show up and walk/bike - Everything else was done! My tour was custom designed by the lovely folks at Camino Ways. I went solo and together we crafted the number of kilometres I wanted to walk, what villages to stay in, and to top it off - a bike rental for 3 days to chill out at Finisterra & Muxia (by the sea). The plan worked out very smoothly and effectively. One of the best features was that the overnights were always centrally located and the best in the area. Very impressed!
Jessie, Canada - July
Thank you Caminoways for providing us with the opportunity to experience the Camino and all the treasures it offers. We met the most wonderful people-pilgrims and citizens alike. The memories of walking through the towns and countryside visit me daily still and I hope to return one day. Everything Caminoways organized was so well done; the accommodations were varied and yet always comfortable and clean, the luggage transfer worked out perfectly and the staff were helpful and friendly. It was certainly a Buen Camino!
Catherine, UK - July 2016
"To celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary we walked from Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre in early July. When we arrived in Santiago de Compostela, I remarked to my husband that a lot of people were limping. By the weekend it was me who was limping into the cathedral but after a wonderful five days walking with Caminoways, I had no regrets. Only on the first day we took food with us and subsequently we realised that there were bars and cafes all along the route and it was nicer to eat freshly prepared local food. We did carry water but it's not really necessary as fountains and cafes were readily available. It was a big plus not carrying our bags as the baggage transfer worked perfectly. The hotels booked for us by Caminoways were all great with friendly staff who despite our lack of Spanish went out of their way to help us with anything. Meals and pick ups all worked perfectly. It was nice to have the walking notes so we could read ahead and know what to expect but they weren't really necessary as the route was so well marked and locals always helped out if the way wasn't clear. This was a very special experience and I look forward to walking again Caminoways."
