Back in medieval times, many pilgrims would already hike to cape Fisterra after reaching Santiago, which back then was considered the end of the world (lat. Finis Terrae). They were drawn to this mystical region and to see the Atlantic Ocean, as it was the first time for many of them. Also, for many, it had the symbolic meaning of starting a new life once arriving there. Then just like today, it is certainly magical and the spectacular sunsets are worth the hike alone. We will follow their steps on this ancient path to the wild and beautiful Atlantic.
The Camino Fisterra will lead us over rolling hills just behind Santiago, then running through an increasingly flat landscape of lush plateaus and finally along the rough coast of the ocean until the famous lighthouse of Fisterra marks the end of the road for that leg of the way.
Picturesque Fisterra is perfect for a rest day to relax at the beach and eat great seafood. On sunny days pilgrims might want to take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean.
Departing for Muxía takes us into one of the most stunning parts of the Camino. First, through the dense and vivid forests that dominate this region, the Camino later takes you back to the coast. We spend the night in the radiant seaside town Lires - what a place to watch the sunset on the beach with a cold beverage in our hands.
The next morning we will travel towards our final destination Muxía, a remote town surrounded by the Ocean. From here, we return to Santiago by bus.
Every morning we offer a daily impulse to the whole group. This can be a short text or a poem that will hopefully inspire you and give you some light input for your time on the way.
