Camino de Finisterre

The final part of the Camino de Santiago journey. Since ancient times pilgrims have been making their way beyond Santiago to Finisterre (Fisterra in Galician) literally the ‘end of the world’. It is the most westerly point in Europe and a fitting end to the epic Camino walk. Four days of walking brings you to the sea and the rugged coastal landscapes of Galicia.

The origins of worship here date back to pre-Christian pagan times, it was also a place of worship for the Romans and thereafter Christians undertaking the Camino as far back as 1000 years ago.

The path leaves Santiago from the Praza do Obradoira taking you out past the stately homes of San Lourenz. You soon enter the country lanes and oak woodland areas. After 6 km in the small hamlet of Sarela de Abaxio you have an amazing view back over Santiago with the cathedral silhouetted against the skyline. The route continues through small villages, on quiet roads and on country paths. From Mar de Ovellas you will be rewarded with magnificent views over the valleys below. Cross the magnificent 14th century bridge Ponte Maceira over the River Tambre and enjoy this beautiful hamlet in Galicia. From here the Camino takes you to Negreira, home to the medieval fortress of Pazo de Coton.


From Negreira the path leads through small picturesque villages, dairy and corn farms while gently rising to the highest point of the Camino de Finisterre at Monte Aro where you can enjoy a panoramic view over the region. The local architecture of the region’s numerous granaries are on display as the route winds its way through this rich agricultural area.

Today the trail continues along the high plateau of Terre de Xallas passing through Hospital before finally descending to the Ponte Olveiroa where you cross the Xallas River. A 10 km gravel path through open fields and plantations is both scenic and quiet where solitude can truly be enjoyed before tackling the steep descent down to Cee while enjoying the first view of Finisterre and the bay in the distance.

Meals: B


A short journey today takes you from Cee to Corcubion and on to Finisterre. Take time to enjoy the old heritage listed area in Corcubion. Along the way enjoy views over the bay and Cape Finisterre with the town nestled below. As you come to the shore, leave the road and take to the sand with your approach to the “End of the World” along the beach of A Langosteira. Another 4 km along the path beside the road leads to the lighthouse and the end of your journey before you return to Finisterre and your overnight accommodation.

Santiago de Compostela

Santiago de Compostela is a wonderful historic city. At its heart is Praza do Obradoiro and the ancient Cathedral, where the remains of St James are allegedly buried. Take a stroll through the cobbled streets and discover the many enticing tapas bars and restaurants. It’s from this city that many pilgrims make their way to Finisterre, literally the ‘end of the world’.


The sleepy and beautiful village of Negreira, 22km from Santiago, is nestled in a valley, masked by hills and mountains on all sides. Its streets are wide and straight and there are plenty of bars and shops. Don’t miss the imposing medieval fortress of Pazo de Coton, the Chapel of San Mauro and the arched Ponte Maceira that straddles the river Tambre.


As you make your way to the tiny hamlet of Abeleiroas you’ll pass numerous granaries as the route winds its way through this rich agricultural area. You’ll gently rise to the highest point of the Camino de Finisterre at Monte Aro where you can enjoy a panoramic view over the region.



The charming seaside town of Cee has a strong fishing heritage. You can often witness the daily activities of fishermen as they bring in their catches. The beautiful sandy beaches, such as Playa de Estorde and Playa de Corcubión, are popular for swimming and sunbathing.


Finisterre translates to ‘End of the Earth’ in Spanish. It was historically believed to be the westernmost point of land in Europe, giving it a certain mystique and making it an important location for pilgrims. The town is set against a backdrop of dramatic cliffs, rugged coastline, and pristine beaches. The Costa da Morte (Coast of Death) begins here, and the powerful Atlantic Ocean has shaped the landscape, creating breathtaking natural beauty. Fisterra Lighthouse (Faro de Fisterra) stands prominently on the cliffs and provides spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding area.

My walk out to the North Atlantic was magical. At 6:00 a.m. the morning I left my room, the pitch dark and “starkers” I plunged myself into the frigid waters below my hotel. The word that came to mind was ‘jubilant’.

Overall the trip was fabulous. The planning and knowledge from RAW was faultless and we were really happy with the trip. We have already recommended RAW to others. For the most part, the accommodation was fantastic and the overall itinerary was great. We did need to contact Daniel in Spain a few times and he was great.

Customer Testimonials

This was a fantastic experience overall made easy with having everything being pre-booked and the luggage transferred. Everything was well organised and hassle free for me and the bag transfers was a seamless process. It was easy to find our hotels each day and I appreciated that most of them were on or very near to the Camino. I also want to mention how fantastic your Spanish employee Daniel is. He was approachable and helped us out with our one problem. Nothing was too much trouble and he is an asset to your team. I would travel with RAW travel again, everything was hassle free and well organised.
