The Way from Santiago to Fisterra: 87 kilometers / 54 miles by foot (6 days)
Accommodation & breakfast in hotels + luggage transfer from hotel to hotel + Travel documents + Insurance
It is an ancient tradition that the pilgrims who often already had traveled hundreds or even thousands of kilometers in order to pay homage to the Apostle in Santiago, would then make a few kilometers more to reach the end of the world, "Finis Terrae". On the beach "Playa da Langosteira" they used to take a purifying bath, then would dress new clothes, burn the old ones, and witness the sunset. Now they could, spiritually cleaned, take the way back to Santiago de Compostela. Also today many pilgrims make the last stage to Finisterre to experience this spiritual cleaning.
On your way to Fisterra, during the foot marches, you will find a perfect service:
Luggage transfer: Your luggage (guideline: 1 suitcase/rucksack of max. 20 kg per person) will be transported from hotel to hotel, so you do not have to carry a heavy weight during the Way.
