Horse Ride Camino Finisterre

Horse Ride Camino Finisterre map

Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre.

Finisterre was known by the Romans as the End of the World and for many pilgrims even today is the ultimate ending to their Camino journey.  This package will allow you to travel on horseback to the End of the World experiencing the unique and wondrous landscape of this coastal region of Galicia.

Camino on Horseback is all inclusive! 

Dates will be determined by demand.  Can be a continuation of the Camino Frances or Camino Portuguese horseback trips.

Who will come with us?
The manager and organizer of the specific route are going to lead the way on the lead horses. With an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) carrying your luggage and everything you need, you can rest assured you will have a comfortable trip.

The Horses
The Horses are well suited to the terrain, mostly native breeds. You need not be an expert rider, but some experience in horse riding is advised.

Day 2
13km

Santiago de Compostela
to
Negreira

The first ride on this trip is a relatively short ride.  Leaving behind Santiago we will head initially north up to the small mountain village of Trasmonte.  From here we will then descend to Ponte Maceira to cross the Tambre River on the beautiful Roman Bridge to arrive at our destination for the day Negreira.  This is the largest town between Santiago and Finisterre.

Day 3
30km

Negreira
to
Olveiroa

Today you will pass through the oldest medieval town of Portugal, Ponte de Lima and cross the Lima River.  Moving closer to the Finisterree border with Spain you will witness the landscape getting hillier and greener.  You are now in the heart of the Mino region.  Tonight you will stop over in Calherios staying in the palace of a Count.

Day 4
26km

Olveiroa
to
Muxia

The ups and downs of today will take you through villages where the ever increasing small of the sea will entice you on.  The arrival to Muxia is truly beautiful along beaches and over dunes to reach the promenade.  In Muxia you can visit the church, A Virxen da Barca which is on the foot of a cliff.  We will relax over dinner and spend the night in this fishing village.

Day 5
29km

Muxia
to
Finisterre

This final day you will make your way along the irregular Costa de Morte with its many caves and estuaries that have been formed by the power of the Atlantic Ocean.  Firstly reaching the town of Fisterre we will continue out to the Cape of Finisterre.  A mixture of sandy beaches and large rock formations will take us to the lighthouse and where pilgrims in the past would have taken leave of their fears and sorrows, burning their old clothes to purify themselves.  After visiting here we will return to Brion-Los Angeles where we started.

We can assist with arranging transfers from here to Santiago Airport or even a night in Santiago so don?t hesitate to ask you Camino consultant about this.
