Travel Itinerary

You will start the last four stages of the Way of the Lighthouses from the small fishing village of Arou, in the province of A Coruña. A small town that opens the doors to the heart of the Costa da Morte. Take a deep breath and familiarize yourself with the smell of the sea, as it will be your inseparable companion in this exciting adventure that has only just begun. Now it’s time to rest, because tomorrow you start your adventure to the End of the Earth.

The time has come… Let’s discover the mythical lighthouses of the Costa da Morte! With an affordable mileage, many ups and downs and various types of terrain we started the way from the small town of Arou to the village of Camariñas. There will be beaches, cliffs, dunes, strange rocks, and of course, lighthouses. This stage will always run parallel to the sea, and listening to the murmur of the Ocean, you will witness the bravery of its waters, which caused many shipwrecks throughout history, such as the episode of the British ship Serpent. After passing the Cabo Vilán lighthouse, the calm of the sheltered port of Camariñas awaits you, where you can rest after an exciting day of wild hiking.

The road is starting to get interesting, and today the longest but flattest stage of the route awaits you. You will enter the Camariñas estuary towards its estuary crossing small Galician villages, with their picturesque hórreos (granaries), pazos, cruceiros (stone crosses) and centenary churches. Lush forests hide beautiful beaches, and on your way back to the ocean you will meet pilgrims on their way to Muxía and the Punta de la Barca, a mythical place full of history and legends. Muxía is a perfect place to rest, with a seafaring and pilgrim atmosphere that will make you fall in love with it.

You may find it hard to leave Muxía: it has a “I-don’t-know-what” that hooks everyone. But your adventure must continue, and today a very interesting and demanding stage awaits you. Get your legs and your eyes ready, because after some ascents you will be able to contemplate fabulous panoramic views of the Costa da Morte, such as the Touriñán Lighthouse, in the westernmost point of peninsular Spain. From there you can relax, a gentle stroll will take you to Nemiña beach, one of the meccas of surfing and the end of your stage. Who knows, a little break on one of its beachfront terraces and maybe you’ll feel like “catching some waves” like a real West Coast surfer.

Don’t let the sadness of the last day discourage you: this is the queen stage, which ends at the mythical Faro de Finisterre. A magical place if ever there was one, for centuries it has been the destination of thousands of pilgrims who, having reached Santiago de Compostela and Muxía, continue on to Finisterre in search of their prized scallop shell. After wild beaches in constant battle with the sea, you will reach the sacred stones of the cape of the End of the World, where the sun that dies after the day will give you a sunset that you will never forget.

This last day you decide, you can go back home or enjoy some more days on the Costa da Morte. In Finisterre you can learn about the work of the seafarers in its port and fish market, as well as in the Fishing Museum in the Castle of San Carlos (18th century). The beautiful village of Corcubión invites you to stroll around it, with its noble buildings in its old historic quarter. In Ézaro you can see the only river in Europe that cascades into the sea, the Xallas River, with a fall of 30 meters; it is the famous Ézaro Waterfall, at the foot of the mythical Mount Pindo, considered the Olympus of the Celtic gods. And very close by, one of the longest beaches in Galicia, the beach of Carnota, whose village houses one of the longest hórreos in Galicia, the Hórreo de Carnota, which competes with the neighbouring Hórreo de Lira for this record. Ask us without obligation and let us make your holiday a great experience.
