Finisterre Day Trip From Santiago

Traditionally, pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago would finish their journey at Cape Fisterra, once thought to be the world’s end. Here, they would swim in the ocean, admire the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean, and reflect on their Camino—a fantastic way to mark the end of an incredible journey.

Luckily, there is a more comfortable way to visit this gorgeous coastline. As part of your holiday with CaminoWays, you can book a day trip from Santiago to Finisterre (Fisterra in Galician).
