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.
