Santiago Day Tour to Finisterre

From Santiago to the end of the world! Santiago Day Tour to Finisterre. Traditionally, pilgrims used to finish their Camino journey in Cape Fisterra, where they burned their clothes and admired the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean. If you rather get to the end of the world in comfort, we have the perfect Finisterre day trip for you (Fisterra in Galician).

Our Finisterre day trip will take you from Santiago de Compostela to the fishing village and Cape, stopping along stunning parts of the Costa da Morte, such as the village of Pontemaceira, the Ézaro waterfall (the only river in Europe reaching the sea as a waterfall) the Castle of Vimianzo and the village of Muxía, famous for its charming sanctuary by the Atlantic.

This Santiago Day Tour to Finisterre is available to book with all our Camino de Santiago Routes finishing in Santiago

Our English-speaking guide will meet the group in Santiago’s Old Town at 9 am for a fantastic day out!

This tour was a great way to see the coast and countryside, along the way. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We were in Santiago de Compostela for 2 full days and this was a highlight for everyone in our group."
