Calum's Cabin, Camino Finisterre Trek 2024

23rd - 30th September 2024

A 5-day, 100km spectacular trek to the ‘end of the world’!

Finisterre translates as the “end of the world” and for many pilgrims they feel that their journey is only complete when they can walk no more— hence the walk from Santiago to Finisterre on the Atlantic Coast.

Starting from the magnificent cathedral in Santiago, we walk for 5 days through the Galician countryside and medieval villages to finish up at the Atlantic ocean.

It is here that pilgrims would traditionally burn their boots after completing their pilgrimage. Only the hardiest of pilgrims complete this quieter route and for this reason, the sense of camaraderie is incredible!
