The Camino Finisterre is a logical and very satisfying topping to completing the Camino Francaise - or the Camino Portuguese. The three, or better: four, day hike from Santiago through Galicia is an experience that really complements the completion of "The Way". Scenery is beautiful, hiking traffic is way reduced on the Camino Finisterre; and completing the hike at Cape... More

Our goal was to keep going after we walked from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago and we were so glad we did. Reaching the coast after 800kms/7 weeks of walking every step. The smell of the Eucalyptus Forests added to the enjoyment of the walk. Not so busy with walkers it was worth it. Next time Continuing Finisterre... More

The Galicia coast is beautiful on a sunny day. Many small towns are around inlets, away from the open ocean.

We cycled the Camino from Santiago to Finisterre over 4 days. This was some of the most scenic parts of the Camino we had experienced after walking from Sarria and also the Portuguese Way from Tui. Much more quiet and scenic, beautiful paths and quiet roads passing dairy farms, woodland and hill tops dotted with wind turbines. Arriving in Finisterre... More

After walking from St Jean Pied de Port, my wife and I continued on to Finisterre then Muxia and back to Santiago de Compostela. The walk was very enjoyable like the main Camino. We happened to be there after heavy rains, and encountered to more rain along the way. Because of our timing, we stayed in Costello the first day... More

A beautiful hike after Santiago, much quieter than the French Way to Santiago, through quiet forest paths, and finally, approaching the sea, it was a lovely way to complete our Camino. We saw far fewer pilgrims, usually people more accustomed to walking farther distances with fewer amenities.

Impressive and historic, ending in Finisterre or in Muxia. Worth taking a tour to see it, a must activity.

We went on a day trip from Santiago De Compostella to Finisterre with Excursiones Galicia (Simply Travel) and it was very poor indeed. Don't get me wrong, the places we went to were beautiful and Finisterre itself is magnificent, but just go with another company. Our guide was supposed to talk in Spanish and English, but we got very little... More

We booked the day trip to Finisterre through EXCURSIONESPORGALICIA.COM. Lucas was our guide and gave the information in Spanish and English. His English was very good and he was very informative on a wide range of subjects. We visited the Costa da Morte, Finisterre, Muxia, Ezaro, Carnota, and the inlets of Coccubion, Muros and Noia. We also visited the only... More

Such a beautiful and wonderful experience. Be prepared for rain though. Good clean Albergues along the way. Not many places to eat when walking so bring supplies.
