Explore the untamed beauty of the Galician coastline

  • One of Europe’s most magnificent unspoilt coastlines
  • Experience spectacular wild capes and rugged scenery
  • Incredible vantage points over the Atlantic
  • Experience Galicia’s vibrant gastronomic scene
  • Journey to Finisterre, the “end of the world”
  • Discover the distinctive lighthouses of the Costa del Morte

Also known as the ‘Camiño dos Faros’, this walk around the coast of Galicia in Northern Spain connects the distinctive lighthouses of the Costa del Morte, a route that combines green, rolling hills with the coursing Atlantic at your side to the West. The region takes its name from an ancient Celtic people, and evidence of those origins can be felt in Galicia’s landscape, independent culture and the Iron Age fortifications found among its cliffs, hills and mountains. These are just some of the many features of Galicia that make it so particular to Spain, with its lush green hilltops, mountains and a rugged coastline that rises and falls with the sloping clifftops. Being located on the Atlantic, Galicia experiences a milder climate than continental Spain, with an Oceanic climate through winter and a much dryer climate over the summer.

Your path begins with a route over the cliffs past the Sisargas archipelago, Beo beach and the chapel of St.Adrián. Here, the route takes you over the hills surrounding the shoreline, past windmills to the first lighthouse at Punta Nariga. The footpath then leads over the sweeping stretch of sands at Niñons on a circular walk from Barizo. From here, your route diverts inland up and over the rolling hillside before bringing you out to Roncudo Cape and its lighthouse. Follow the sandy trail into Ponreceso, wherefrom your accommodation in Laxe, the path takes you over Traba beach towards Camelle harbour. The tour then leads you on a mountainous route from the village of Arou, past small beaches and then on a circular route round Mourin, where you’ll see the Cabo Vilán lighthouse. From Ponte de Cereixo, walk along Lago beach as you enter the village of Muxia en-route to the westernmost lighthouse of this walk at Cabo
Touriñan. The route finishes in Finisterre with a coastal walk around the Cabo Finisterre.

Across your journey you’ll return each night to one of our hand-picked rural retreats, typically small rustic B&Bs, some of which have been converted from old farmhouses or hotels near the sea, great bases for exploring the wider, local area. Galician accommodation is often quite simple in design, but comfortable and traditionally styled. You can expect all modern amenities, as well as warm welcome on arrival in a region well-known for its hospitality. Accommodation can range from near access to shops, bars and restaurants to much quieter places set out in the countryside. This route’s proximity to the sea, as well as Galicia’s reputation for fine, local produce means that you can expect traditional seafood dishes on the menu either at your accommodation or a recommended restaurant nearby.
