Finisterre - Costa da Morte Day Tour from Santiago de Compostela
Walk 13 km along the new lighthouse to lighthouse Camino towards Cabo Finisterre & experience the Coast of Death on a 1 day excursion. The Camino to Finisterre pre-dates Christianity, as pagans would head to Fisterra (in Galician meaning the End of Land) on the Costa da Morte (Coast of Death - one of the most dangerous coast to sail) where they believed the sun died and the worlds of the dead and the living joined. When the Camino de Santiago became an important Christian pilgrimage, pilgrims started following this tradition and walking the 88 remaining kilometers to the Atlantic Ocean. Here, at the World's End, with the almost permanent mist and the fierce ocean, they would burn their clothes, pray and symbolically start a new purer life.
For those who do not have the time to walk 3 to 4 days into Finisterre from Santiago de Compostela, we organize private day tours along this route towards Finisterre and Muxia. This tour focuses on the relation with the ocean and the walk. With a local guide you will walk the remaining 13 km between Muxia and Finisterre along the new Faro a Faro route (lighthouse to lighthouse). This route is relatively new but absolutely stunning. The Camino from Finisterre to Muxia goes inland but the coast around us is amazing so we recommend walking on the beaches, by the cliffs, feeling the wind and the salty air. Arriving onto the lighthouse of Finisterre at the End of the World will be an experience to cherish.
On request, we can stop to visit Ézaro, which is the only place in Europe where a waterfall flows into the sea, the old town of Finisterre, and Muxia with it's Virxe da Barca (Virgin of the Boat) sanctuary.
