Epilogue Cycling: Santiago to Finisterre and Muxía (self-guided)

A unique Camino de Santiago extension (4 days) that leads you to the stunning Galician coast
Description

For those wanting to continue their pilgrimage up to the coast, there is this nice epilogue that departs directly from Santiago pursuing the sunset. 

This unspoiled extension takes you through astonishing and varied sceneries: pine and eucalyptus forests, rolling hills, green fields, small rural villages and last but not least, the wild Atlantic coast. A peaceful route through 122 km that leads you to the end of the known world in Roman times: Finisterre (Fisterra in Galician).  

*This tour is sold as an extension, and can be booked together with other cycling pilgrimages that end in Santiago; for that reason, this package does not include a first night in Santiago. However, we can book additional nights in Santiago under request. 

 

  • Day: 1 - Santiago - A Picota/Olveiroa (53 km/33 miles)

    Continue your Camino cycling directly from Plaza del Obradoiro, leaving behind Santiago de Compostela to get into the rural Galicia. You will pass through eucalyptus forests and small villages before crossing the stone bridge Ponte Maceira and reaching Negreira. Continue cycling out Negreira through its Mediaeval gate; a gentle ascent awaits you up to A Pena, where the dense forests will change into green farmlands. Enjoy the views over the Embalse da Fervenza before reaching the small village of A Picota/Olveiroa.

  • Day: 2 - A Picota/Abeleiroas - Fisterra (48 km/30 miles)

    This stage leads you to the well-known Cape Finisterre. Cycle along quiet secondary roads and beautiful paths through pine woods. You will pass the Nuestra Señora de las Nieves Chapel; the benches outside invites you to rest for a while, enjoying the tranquility of the nature that surrounds you. A few km after, you will get a first glimpse of the sea. After a pronounced descent you arrive in Cee, one of the biggest towns along the Costa da Morte. Only 16 km separate you from the lighthouse, and you will have more than one chance to take a swim at the beach. Make sure you arrive on time to watch the setting sun over the sea from Cape Finisterre, a really gratifying experience to end the day! 

  • Day: 3 - Finisterre - Muxía (30 km/19 miles)

    This last stage heads to the North on quiet paths offering some stunning views over the coast. Passing Lires, a small village located halfway between Finisterre and Muxía, there is a gentle ascent that lasts 8,5 km; after that, from Facho de Lourido the path goes downhill through the pine groves. Stop for a refreshing swim at Lourido beach before reaching the quaint village of Muxía, and do not forget to visit the impressive Sanctuary Nosa Señora da Barca.

  • Day: 4 - Return

    Your tour finishes after breakfast. You can book extra nights in Muxía or in Santiago.
