Camino Finisterre - to Finisterre, Muxía and 24 hours in A Coruña

Update - Almost sold out - Limited places available!

This is one of the most varied itineraries of any Camino week – a little bit of everything thrown in!

Starting from the cathedral in Santiago, we will walk for 4 days to reach Finisterre, with the option then of walking an extra day to Muxía on the Costa da Morte (or just relax in Finisterre!).

To add an extra flavour to the week, we will spend 24 hours in Coruña, allowing time to unwind and experience the city of the Torre de Hercules. Explore the old town or stroll on the Riazor beach – it’s a city with a little bit of everything!

Sunday, Oct 1st, Day 3

  • From  about 4km of Cée, you get your first look at the Atlantic Ocean, a sign that you are approaching the end of the world.
Tuesday, Oct 3rd, Day 5
  • Walk 13km to Finisterre. Your entire day is spent getting views of journey’s end, the headland of Finisterre. The beaches at Estorde and Sardiñeiro whet your appetite for the beautiful beach of Langosteira which brings you all the way to the fishing town of Finisterre. 
  • A 6km round trip to the lighthouse allows you to watch the sun go down over the end of the world. You might even avail of a trip out to sea for the sunset.
Wednesday, Oct 4th, Day 6
  • Walk 29km to Muxía. Muxía is a quiet Camino jewel – many finish walking in Finisterre and don’t know what they are missing! Explore the wild Atlantic crashing against the shore and admire the Señora de la Barca church standing proud against the Atlantic.  Remember that the beautiful Costa da Morte gets its name for good reason – don’t stray too close to the water!
  • Some choose to finish their walking in Finisterre - you can relax and take a taxi up to Muxía at any point of the day if so (or walk half the day, using the pretty village of Lires as your half-way point).
