6 DAY FINISTERRE WAY (SELF GUIDED)
SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA – FINISTERRE
Running from Santiago de Compostela to the Cape of Finisterre or ‘the end of the world’ as it was known in medieval times. It is a land of ancestral legends, a hidden gem waiting to be seen by those looking to understand the essence of ‘green’ Galicia.
This 6 day walking experience takes in just under 90km through the infamous eucalyptus trails of Galicia. This route leaves the historical city of Santiago and meanders west through the medieval town of Negreira, the rural village of Olveiroa, on to the stunningly beautiful coastal towns of Corcubión and Finisterre to end at Cape Finisterre; which is regarded to be one of the most beautiful sunset locations in the world.
The flat gradients, woodland, eucalyptus trails and coastal paths allow you to become completely absorbed in the route between Santiago and Finisterre. It encapsulates the untouched cultural heritage and wild, untamed nature of northwest Spain.
Further benefits of this trip include: luggage transfers and hand-chosen hotels. Detailed walking notes are also included as is 24hr telephone assistance taking the stress out of attempting this trip independently.
Alongside the sense of achievement and numerous chances to taste the local Galician food, this walking trip also allows you to qualify for the pilgrim’s certificate for the Finisterre Way.
