Day trip to Finisterre

End of the Earth landscape view

Many times, after walking the Camino, travelers don’t want their experience to end. They can also feel overwhelmed with the crowds and people in Santiago and they long for the quiet trail of the Camino.

One way to extend the trip and have a reflective experience is by taking a day trip to Finisterre, translated as “The End of the Earth”.

This beautiful town is about an hour West of Santiago and is right on the Northern Coast of Spain. It’s a quiet little fishing village that has local shops and great seafood. The highlight of this town is the magical peak that looks out over the sea. You can take a car or walk up the sleep slope that ends in a rocky cliff. The views from up here are amazing. It really does look like the world just drops off. It’s the perfect place to sit and reflect upon the journey you’ve taken. A day trip to Finisterre can be added on to your Hike the Way trip.
