Camino de Santiago

A network of paths leading to a church holding the remains of St. James (Santo Iago), the patron saint of Spain...

Reviewed By davidsJ5671XD

We had booked a self-guided tour on the Portuguese Camino with Walks in Spain for September 2020 having been very happy with the arrangements they made for our 2008 Sarria to Santiago trip. My wife and I are both in our 70’s and have become very anxious with the Coronavirus about travelling. I called Paul to express our concerns expecting to at least forfeit our deposit and was pleasantly surprised when after explaining that we couldn’t rebook for next year he offered to return our deposit. I am impressed with the integrity and professionalism of this company, thank you Paul.

O Camino dos Faros

O Camino dos Faros (The Way of Lighthouses) is a 200-km hiking route in Galicia (Spain) that links Malpica with Finisterre along the coastline. A route that runs by all the Lighthouses and the most important landmarks in A Costa da Morte, where definitely, it is the sea the one that plays the main role. O Camino dos Faros that runs through loads of different landscapes always looking at the sea towards the West. Lighthouses, beaches, dunes, rivers, cliffs, forests, estuaries with a great variety of birds, "castros" ("hill-forts"), dolmens, fishing villages, viewpoints from where to enjoy how the sea breaks in all ways possible, sunsets and so on. A hiking route different from the others that will take the hiker to a world full of unique sensations only enjoyable in this Costa da Morte. We, "Os Trasnos", are a group of friends that one day started thinking that it was possible to link Malpica with Finisterre by using a route along the coastline. We left Malpica and we did arrive to the end, by using different routes and other paths that linked different points along this coast, named, "A Costa da Morte" ("the coast of death"). Eventually, by linking all the points we created a breathtaking hiking route. We were so overwhelmed by what we felt and by what we lived that we made up our mind to tell everybody our experience. Since then, loads of other Trasnos have followed us transforming this route into a collaborative project where everybody is welcomed and where there is only one goal: to make this Camino dos Faros be a reality so that people can make it with the maximum respect for nature. O Camino dos Faros does not belong to the Trasnos, it is the heritage of a Costa da Morte. We strongly encourage you to follow us in this adventure and help us to create this common heritage by/for the people.

Camino de Finisterre

Reviewed By viaUAA - Ljubljana, Slovenia

After finishing one of the Caminos (Frances, Portugal, Norte, Primitvo, etc.) it is worth to extend your trip to Fisterra if you have enough time. Galicia with green hills and forrests is just amazing and worth to extend your way to Fisterra. I walked in the beginning of September and there were not as much as pilgrims along the way compared to last 100-150 kilometers before Santiago. However, the bars and albergues along the way were almost full since there is not as much capacities in the section Santiago-Fisterra. But you are able to meet many new pilgrims that you had not meet before, because they come to Santiago on some other way. And when reaching beach in Finisterra - do not forget to find St. James shell - this used to be the prove that you walk Camino several centuries ago.
