Finisterre Day Trip From Santiago

Traditionally, pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago would finish their journey at Cape Fisterra, once thought to be the end of the world. Here they would burn their clothes, swim in the ocean and admire the sunset over the Atlantic ocean – a wonderful way to mark the end of an incredible journey.

Luckily, there is a more comfortable way to visit this gorgeous coastline and it doesn’t require a new set of clothes by the journey’s end. As part of your holiday with CaminoWays, you can book a day trip from Santiago to Finisterre (Fisterra in Galician).
