Overview

Explore this historical route, also called the Jacobean Extension, Camino a Finisterre or Epilogue to the Camino de Santiago which, unlike the other pilgrimage routes, is the only one that originates from, and does not finish, in the city of Santiago de Compostela.

Cross through the villages of Negreira, Olveiroa, and Cee to Cape Finisterre, known as the "End of the World", a magical place with spiritual rites such as the "miracle of the sun". According to tradition, the legendary Ara Solis was located, the altar of sun worship.

  • Discover the village of Hospital, home to the Vaker or Monster of Hospital, devouring pilgrims.
  • Visit Corcubion and its old quarter, declared a historical-artistic site.
  • Watch the beautiful sunset and burn your walking clothes and shoes at Cape Finisterre.
  • Relax on the amazing beaches near Lires such as Lires or Nemina beaches.  
  • Visit the Virxe da Barca Sanctuary once you arrive in Muxia. 
  • Enjoy the beautiful views of the Costa da Morte, in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula.

Furthermore, by booking your Camino de Finisterre with Orbis Ways, you will stay in en suite rooms in charming hotels and country cottages and we will transfer your luggage between stages.

    FAQs

    Absolutely! Each traveller has included 1 piece of luggage that we will transfer between your accommodations. It's important that this piece of luggage meets the following criterias:

    • Maximum weight of 45 lbs (20 kg).
    • Must be only 1 piece of luggage without any attachments or accessories.
    • Should not contain valuables, fragile items, food or medications.
    • Must be correctly identified (booking reference of your trip and the full name of the trip holder).

    The approximate luggage delivery time will be at 4:00 PM.

    We recommend preparing 2 months before your trip with daily walks on similar terrain and, if desired, with cardio and endurance exercises.

    Any time between March and October will give you an amazing experience. May is undoubtedly one of the best months to complete the route, as the temperatures are moderate, as is the influx of pilgrims.

    In spring, mornings and evenings are usually cool and during the day, temperatures are pleasant, with a sun that is not as scorching as in summer. However, at this time and in autumn, especially in the north where the ocean climate predominates, there are frequent rains, so we suggest you check the weather forecast.

    You will love this route if you are passionate about pilgrimage walks with a penitential and spiritual sense, reminiscent of the European traditions of the 13th century, amid the natural and heritage beauty of Galician territory. 

    It is also ideal for you if you enjoy coastal landscapes, the oceanic climate and experiences with cultural diversity, while touring small rural villages, medieval bridges, numerous horreos (grain stores) and places full of history and legends.

    We recommend that you book as soon as you are sure about your dates, as accommodation can fill up very quickly in this area.

    Once you make your reservation we will send you all the detailed information about the specific equipment you need for this route, considering recommendations for shoes, boots, clothes and a day-to day backpack.

    The pilgrim's credential can be found upon arrival at your first accommodation.

    This credential must be stamped in churches, restaurants and hotels during your journey on the Camino de Santiago. At the end of the trip in the city of Santiago, you can obtain the Compostela that certifies you as a pilgrim.

    I travelled last week to Madeira with Orbis Ways and it has been an amazing experience. Accommodations were exceptional, and everything was explained very well, apart from that the Island is amazing, must be seen at least once in a lifetime. Dinners were very good, with local fresh homemade food! Very recomending!!!
    Excellent trip. Excellent communication with Orbis. Lovely accommodations. Luggage transfer was always done well and the overall trip was excellent. I cannot wait to do another walk in 2023 and will use Orbis ways 100%.
    Few days ago I finished Camino Francés. Orbis Ways planned the trip for me, arranged my routes and accommodations as well as luggage transfers. Everything went smoothly from the beginning in St Jean Pied du Port until the end in Santiago. Rooms with private bathrooms that they booked for me were comfortable and clean and luggage transfers underwent without mistakes. My daily routes were well planned. In 34 days I had only two problematic situations with accommodations and their 24 hours assistance team solved them in few minutes. I enjoyed every minute of my Way. I am planning to return and do some other route - Norte and Portugués gor sure. Orbis Ways will be my choice again.
    I did the wonderful walking holiday trip of 8 days Mont Blanc...the experience was incredible, from the beginning everything chosen in the dossier was beyond expectations, providing all the necessary information.I am very grateful for the wonderful and detailed attention of Jhonay. Also the accommodations chosen were very comfortable!I have no doubt that I will repeat as soon as I can, the routes are spectacular!
    Orbisways did an outstanding job of planning our trip along the Camino de Santiago. The provided voucher provided excellent information, the accommodations were awesome, never had any confusion regarding travel details and the staff I worked with prior to our trip were kind and very efficient. I highly recommend OrbisWays and will definitely be traveling with them again!!
