CYCLE CAMINO DE FINISTERRE AND MUXIA(Self-guided)

Finisterre and Muxia Camino

A mythical and symbolic Camino to the end of the world

The Fisterra Camino is most faithful depiction of the historical cry of the pilgrim, who exclaimed “Ultreia!” (Still further!). And it really is further than the goal in Compostela — after having venerated the remains of the apostle St. James — when many pilgrims decide to discover the end of the world, and do not hesitate to overcome the sacrifices of the harsh days behind them to walk some more days.
Until the end of the Middle Ages, the "Costa da Morte" (“Death Coast”) was the furthest stronghold of land known, the place where pre-Roman peoples believed that souls ascended to heaven. A mythical and symbolic space that left the Roman conquerors open-mouthed when they saw the sun disappearing into the immense ocean. Since then, Cape Fisterra has magnetised every visitor in the same way.

Arrival

Free day in Santiago.
Accommodation: Hotel 3*

Stage 1: Santiago - Negreira (22 km / 13,7 miles)

As you leave Santiago behind, look back for picture postcard views of the city. Spend the rest of the day amid the greenery of forests and fields interspersed with small villages. Cross a Roman bridge in the charming town of Ponte Maceira then end the day in the town of Negreira.
Accommodation: Country Hotel (3*)

Stage 2: Negreira - Olveiroa (34 km / 21 miles)

Start early as this is a full day’s walk with a gradual but long uphill climb out of Negreira. Enjoy the enchanting walled forest paths, quiet country lanes and beautiful scenery from the ridge. You have one more hill to climb to Monte Aro before descending into the village of Oliveiroa.
Accommodation: Country Hotel (2*)

Stage 3: Olveiroa - Finisterre (35 km / 21,7 miles)

Today’s terrain is much flatter and especially picturesque as you walk amid mountains, windmills and forest then get your first glimpse of the ocean and Cape Finisterre in the distance. After an initial climb through Concorbión, the Way drops back down to the beach and mostly follows the coastline and the long, sandy Langosteira beach to Finisterre, with tantalising views of the cape. The lighthouse that marks the ‘end of the world’ is another 3 km from the fishing village.
Accommodation: Country Hotel (3*)

Stage 4: Finisterre - Muxia (31 km / 19,2 miles)

The extension to Muxia begins at the Baixar Cross in Finisterre and takes you through unspoiled, peaceful countryside with views of the Costa da Morte and plenty of instances of rural lifestyles. End the stage in the lovely town of Muxia and the church of the Virgin of A Barca on the rocky promontory at the other ‘end of the Earth’.
Accommodation: Hotel (3*)
