Nice walk to finish off camino

If you can do the camino you can do the last bit! We walked to the end of the beach: it is rustic and big waves and we found three shark eggs on the beach. Go for it!

This was the third Camino that my friend and I have done together in the past 3 years. We started with Leon to Santiago, then Porto to Santiago and this year we decided on Santiago to Finisterre and then to Muxia. It is almost 120km long and it took us 7 days to complete. Even though we did this in... More

This part is so worth adding on to El Camino. To me, it felt really like the end of the journey, as opposed to my arrival in Santiago. If you really dont want to hike the extra 100+km, there are buses to there from Santiago. Dont forget to add in Muxia too. Stayed in Hotel Mar da Ardora in Fisterra-what... More

And it really feels like it. Definitely worth extending your Camino for the extra few days to come and visit the town, the cape and the lighthouse

Whilst we did not walk the extra km to the end it is a worth a bus trip to see "the end of the world". We stayed in a magnificent hotel, had great fun in an albergue and thoroughly enjoyed the town. Would highly recommend taking a bus, tour or train here.

Great walk with fantastic scenery ! Plus it is a walk to acknowledge the Sun God not the Evil Gods of the bible.

We drove all the way from Santiago to Finisterre. On our way we met pilgrims who after visiting St James Cathedral and continue their last part to Finisterre because in the earliest times they used to think that Finisterre is the end of the world. At Finisterre you'll find a lighthouse and many placards attached to the rocks leaving their... More

By no means was I the only pilgrim walking this 'post-Camino' route, but there were far, far fewer people than on the Camino Frances or Portuguese leading to Santiago. The scenery along the way is quintessential Galician countryside - rolling green hills, small farming communities, misty forest pathways and quaint fishing villages. There are a couple of sizeable towns along... More

Walked from Santiago to Finisterre in three days after walking from Porto to Santiago. Much of the walk is through massive agricultural land. Longer distances between cafes. Route is well marked.

It takes time, patients, and endurance but the hike from Lisbon to Santiago to Muxia to Finesteer is amazing. You will meet lots of folks all over the world coming and going. Everyone is very nice, albergue said are easy to find, it only requires you follow the way and it will lead you to your destinations. You can upgrade... More
