Day One: Santiago Check into hotel in Santiago de Compostela.
 
Day Two: Negreira Your Camino trip starts in Santiago de Compostela, a vibrant University city. Explore Santiago’s UNESCO-listed old town and its wonders before you embark on your journey to the ‘End of the World’!
Day Three: Abeleiroas From A Barcala, the Fisterra Camino continues along a mountain and across the river Barcala. As you climb Monte Aro, you will enjoy great views of Fervenza’s dam before you enter the wild Serra de Castelo and the Xallas valley. Small hills and green pastures welcome you on your way.
 
Day Four: Cee From Abeleiroas, you will continue along the Finisterre Way to Olveiroa. From there, the Camino follows the river to Logoso and takes pilgrims past the Nosa Señora Chapel (Our Lady). After the chapel, the trail continues downhill through the pine groves of Alto do Cruceiro da Armada, where you will get a first glimpse of the sea! The coastal town of Cee is your stop for the night.
 
Day Five: Finisterre A beautiful path awaits for your walking day to Fisterra, hugging the cliffs and coves of the bay. Your final destination is Cape Fisterra (or Finisterre in Spanish) and its striking lighthouse. Watch the sun set right at the ‘End of the World’.
 
Day Six: Lires The ocean views along this section of the Camino are splendid. The village of Lires is home to pristine sandy beaches, perfect for a refreshing swim in hot summer days. 
 
Day Seven: Muxia Go for a swim at Praia de Lourido. The quaint fishing village of Muxía is your final destination. Make sure to visit the sanctuary of Nosa Señora da Barca right by the Atlantic Ocean and its holy stones, said to have curative powers: the rocking stone and the ‘Kidney stone’. The fishing village of Muxía will charm you with its mix of pagan and religious traditions. Visit the Virxe da Barca sanctuary and its famous ‘rocking stones’ overlooking the Atlantic. According to tradition, you have to walk 9 times under the ‘Pedra dos Cadrís’ to cure all your back ailments. And don’t forget to taste some of Galicia’s famous seafood.
 
Day Eight: Santiago de Compostela Transfer from Muxia Hotel to Santiago de Compostela Hotel
