Pilgrimage Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrival at Santiago Airport and Introduction to Guides
Monday 29th August
Check-in at Dublin airport for your direct Aer Lingus flight to Santiago de Compostela departing at 13:10 and arriving in Santiago de Compostela at 16:25. On arrival, you will be met by your guide and transferred to the Hotel Gelmirez in Santiago, and check in for 3 nights. This Camino route is unique as it is the only one to begin in the great historic city of Santiago. After dinner in the hotel take a leisurely stroll through the busy streets and plazas of the old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site or kick back in a lively café or bar.

Day 2 – Santiago – Negreira (21km)
Tuesday 30th August
Time to set off. Leave the historic centre of Santiago de Compostela and head northwards. Once you cross the beautiful medieval bridge of Ponto Maceira, you will encounter wooded paths, rustic villages and rolling farmlands. The days greatest challenge is the short but steep climb to Alto do Mar. The stage ends in the medieval town of Negreira. Transfer back to our hotel in Santiago

Day 3 – Negreira to Olveiroa (33km)
Wednesday 31st August
During today’s long stage you will come across bucolic green landscapes dotted with pastures and small villages. As you climb Monte Aro you will be greeted with lovely views of the Fervenza Dam before you enter the wild Serra de Castelo and the Xallas Valley. The town of Olveiroa in the Xallas Valley offers some fine examples of Galician pastoral architecture. Transfer back to our hotel in Santiago (apprx. 50mins)

Day 4 – Olveiroa to Corcubión (22km)
Thursday 1st September
Transfer to Olveiroa (approx. 25min). Today you walk along a stunning path lined with chapels, stone crosses and hermitages.The trail culminates at the southern end in legendary Costa da Morte (Coast of Death), which gets its name from the many shipwrecks along its rugged shore. After spending so much time contemplating the colours of the land, your first view of the blue Atlantic Ocean will be unforgettable. After our walk, we will be transferred to the 4 Hotel AC Coruña in Coruña where we will check in for 2 nights.

Day 5 – Corcubión to Finisterre (13km)
Friday 2nd September
Follow a pleasant coastal trail that takes you along pretty cliffs and coves until your arrival at the seaside village of Finisterre, an authentic Galician fishing community where it is possible to sample some of the best seafood dishes in all of Spain. After lunch we will continue on to Cape Finisterre. Cape Finisterre was the last stopover for pilgrims who made a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. The Lighthouse of Finisterre stands at the westernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula at Cape Finisterre, on the west coast of Galicia, Spain. The renowned lighthouse is considered to be one of the most powerful lighthouses in Europe. To add to the wonder, the wild and treacherous Cape Finisterre is said to be the ‘End of the World’ since medieval times.

Day 6 – Finsterre to Muxía (29km)
Saturday 3rd September
A long but beautiful stage that follows an unspoilt coastline and ends in the lovely fishing village of Muxía. There you can visit the Sanctuary of Nuestra Senora de la Barca where the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared in a stone boat to offer solace and encouragement to the Apostle James. You can also visit the famous ‘Rocking Stones’ overlooking the Atlantic. After our walk, we will be transferred back to Santiago de Compostela to the Hotel Gelmirez where we will check in for our final night.

Day 7 – transfer to Santiago Airport
Sunday 4th September
Our flight departs Santiago at 17.30 allowing time in the morning to pick up last minute souvenirs or to visit the cathedral again. There will be a transfer to the airport from the hotel in the afternoon.

*It is our intention to follow the itinerary as outlined above, however due to many factors like local holidays, traffic or weather conditions it may be necessary to make changes to the order of events or even the cancelation of certain events.
