"To celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary we walked from Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre in early July. When we arrived in Santiago de Compostela, I remarked to my husband that a lot of people were limping. By the weekend it was me who was limping into the cathedral but after a wonderful five days walking with Caminoways, I had no regrets. Only on the first day we took food with us and subsequently we realised that there were bars and cafes all along the route and it was nicer to eat freshly prepared local food. We did carry water but it's not really necessary as fountains and cafes were readily available. It was a big plus not carrying our bags as the baggage transfer worked perfectly. The hotels booked for us by Caminoways were all great with friendly staff who despite our lack of Spanish went out of their way to help us with anything. Meals and pick ups all worked perfectly. It was nice to have the walking notes so we could read ahead and know what to expect but they weren't really necessary as the route was so well marked and locals always helped out if the way wasn't clear. This was a very special experience and I look forward to walking again Caminoways."

"This September I did my second trip with Camino Ways. My husband and I walked for 16 days. We started in Porto, Portugal and walked to Santiago (12 days) and then on to Finisterre (4 days.) I highly recommend Camino Ways! They handled the accommodations, which included breakfast every day and dinner 12 nights. This Camino is not nearly as popular as the French Way, but it is very lovely. I took hundreds of pictures. Each day was an exciting adventure. The luggage transfers worked perfectly. What a pleasure to only carry your day back and have your luggage shuttled to the next destination."

All the accommodations were wonderful, especially in Finisterra. The bags were delivered as promised each day. The preparation and instructions were very helpful and I appreciated being able to ask all the questions before hand and receiving prompt replys. I would recommend Camino Ways to anyone thinking about making this pilgrimage on the Camino. Having Camino Ways as our support made the “walk” enjoyable and worry free.

The ease and comfort of having your baggage safely moved from hotel to hotel was a great luxury. The food and lodgings were another added comfort at the end of each walking day. But more important, was having communication with very friendly and hospitable Camino staff prior to our trip. Emails and phone calls answered all questions to complete my planning. And just a few days before my departure, I got another call, just to check in with me. All this reassured me that Camino Ways has the pilgrims concerns at the highest priority!! I’ll be booking again with Camino Ways! Buen Camino!”

Walk to the Atlantic Coast, along the Finisterre Way or Camino de Fisterra to the ‘End or Edge of the World’! The quiet Finisterre Way of the Camino de Santiago is the only route starting in Santiago. This unique Camino passes quiet villages, remote farmland and unspoiled landscapes; finally reaching the sea cliffs of the westernmost point in Spain, at Cape Fisterra (Finisterre in Spanish).

After Fisterra, the trail follows the stunning craggy coastline of Atlantic Galicia to the fishing village of Muxía. This beautiful region of Galicia is known as the ‘Coast of Death’ and Fisterra (Finis Terrae) was once considered to be the end of the world! It is a land full of fascinating traditions, delicious seafood and spectacular scenery.

This tour will allow you to claim your ‘Finisterrana’ pilgrim certificate in Fisterra and a ‘Muxiana’ pilgrim certificate when you get to Muxía.

The guided tour departs on specific dates only and the next tour is 15th September 2018. You will have to select this start date when booking.
