Finisterre Day Trip How it Works

lighthouse-finisterre-day-trip-camino-de-santiago-caminowaysTraditionally, Camino de Santiago pilgrims finished their journey by the Atlantic Ocean, at Cape Fisterra. Here they would burn their clothes, swim in the ocean and admire the sun set having completed their pilgrimage to Santiago and then to the ‘end of the world’. If you rather get to Finisterre in comfort, after your walk to Santiago, you can book a Finisterre day trip (Fisterra in Galician) instead, as part of your Camino de Santiago holiday with CaminoWays.com.

The Finisterre day trip will take you to the fishing village of Fisterra and its famous Cape and lighthouse; believed to be the end of the world by the Romans and local settlers before their arrival. You will also visit stunning parts of this area of great natural beauty called Costa da Morte, including the Ézaro waterfall (the only river in Europe reaching the sea as a waterfall), Carnota (home to the biggest granary and the largest sandy beach in Galicia) and the fishing village of Muxía, and its famous sanctuary overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

    Hi Lisa, the day trip to Fisterra has a good number of stops during the day which will allow the group to go for bathroom breaks, see full details here (click on itinerary tab): http://caminoways.com/ways/santiago-de-compostela-camino-day-tour/finisterre-day-trip

    Hi Marylin, our customer care team will be in touch with details. You could definitely book a walk while you are in Florence. You can find dates for our guided tours here: http://francigenaways.com/our-services/via-francigena-guided-tours. Our self-guided tours can depart any time. If you’d prefer to go self-guided, we’d recommend section 14 of the Via Francigena, starting in San Miniato to Siena: http://francigenaways.com/ways/via-francigena/via-francigena-section-14, so you would be walking an average of approximately 15kms (9-10miles) per day over 5 walking days. Let us know if you need more information. Kind regards.
