Loved the walk from Santiago to Finisterre. Had previously done the walk from Sarria to Santiago. Much less peregrinos on this section of the camino and great scenery, particularly on the last 30 kms, as you get nearer FInisterre. Long stretches on trails through corn...More

After finishing the Camino de Santiago it would be a mistake not to finish in Finistere. It was much more than I had expected. Breath taking views and meaningful end to a trip of a lifetime. Make sure you hire a good driver for the...More

Don't stop at Santiago. The extra few days to Finisterre is well worth it. The walk to the lighthouse is amazing, along with a great sense of achievement. It is a beautiful picturesque town.

I walked this after doing the Camino Francais. It was possibly my favourite part of my whole trip - beautiful scenery, quiet after the Sarria onslaught and great people. Would definitely recommend doing this.

We thought we would finish in Santiago de Compostela, then we thought we would finish in Finisterre but it wasn't. Yes the zero km marker is here, and yes many people who walk to SDC continue to Finisterre. Yes the certificate from the Xunta Albergue...More

If you can do the camino you can do the last bit! We walked to the end of the beach: it is rustic and big waves and we found three shark eggs on the beach. Go for it!

This part is so worth adding on to El Camino. To me, it felt really like the end of the journey, as opposed to my arrival in Santiago. If you really dont want to hike the extra 100+km, there are buses to there from Santiago....More

And it really feels like it. Definitely worth extending your Camino for the extra few days to come and visit the town, the cape and the lighthouse

Whilst we did not walk the extra km to the end it is a worth a bus trip to see "the end of the world". We stayed in a magnificent hotel, had great fun in an albergue and thoroughly enjoyed the town. Would highly recommend...More

Yes it does, but the arrows and shells are not always easy to see.
