Camiño dos Faros – The Lighthouse Way
Camiño dos Faros – The Lighthouse Way is a hiking route of around 200 kilometers. It connects Malpica with Finisterre. A path where the sea plays a leading role and where we can admire all the lighthouses and monuments of the Costa da Morte.
It is divided into eight stages. The calculation of the times for each individual stage is an estimated, approximate figure without taking intermediate stops into account. It usually takes longer because it is difficult not to stop at every step to admire and enjoy the paradise that surrounds us. This tour is not about arriving quickly, is about enjoying the experience. We recommend doing this without rushing.
Route and landscape. A paradise full of myths and legends.
O Camiño dos Faros – The Lighthouse Way is a route that runs along the sea. Although we will see dozens of beaches, we have to keep in mind that they run along a steep coast. On this route along the Costa da Morte there are many differences in altitude, ascents and descents.
Virgin beaches and a wild coast make the Camiño dos Faros – The Lighthouse Way an unforgettable trip. We come through the area where the best “percebes” in the world are captured. These are grown by the powerful waves of the sea, which constantly hit the rocks. We will pass through places like O Roncudo, where the “percebeiros” (fishermen who collect percebes) literally risk their lives to get this treasure of Galician gastronomy.
During the eight days of the tour we will get to know places of great historical importance such as the English cemetery in Camariñas or the Santuario da Virxe da Barca and its enigmatic “pedra de abalar”.
We can enjoy the wonderful nature of the area, not only the beaches, dunes, cliffs and forests, but also estuaries where we have the opportunity to spot large numbers of native birds.
Our destination, Cape Fisterra, considered the end of the world for centuries and reached by Décimo Junio Bruto in the 16th century, is a magical place where the Celts honored the sun and from which we have a magnificent view of the Atlantic as well as enjoying the rugged Galician coast.
Cape Fisterra is also considered the very end of the Camino de Santiago.
As we know today, it’s not the real end of the world, but it’s an unbeatable destination for our nine day hike through the natural paradise of the Costa da Morte, the mythical Coast of Death.
