150 km from Ponteseco to Finisterre along the Costa de la Muerte
The Camino dos Faros (Lighthouse Way) is a lovely hiking route in Galicia that links Malpica with Finisterre along the coastline, a route that includes all the lighthouses and most important landmarks in A Costa daLa Costa de la Muerte Morte (Coast of Death), where it is definitely the sea that plays the main role.
This Camino Dos Faros is not a pilgrimage route, per se, as its name might imply, but it is the perfect route for all those who want to experience La Costa da Morte (Coast of Death). You can walk this route from March / April to October.
Spain is More organizes this trip from Ponteceso due to the infrastructure of the route: 150 km of sensations ahead of you to reach Finisterre. If you wish to extend the trip with two additional hiking stages, it's possible (respectively 21 and 27 km). Due to a lack of accommodation options, you will be transported to the starting point of each stage during those two days.
The Camino dos Faros runs through a myriad of different landscapes while always looking out West towards the sea. Lighthouses, beaches, dunes, rivers, cliffs, forests, estuaries with a great variety of birds, “castros” (“hill-forts”), dolmens, fishing villages, viewpoints from where one can enjoy the sea breaking from every vantage, sunsets and more.
This is a hiking route different from any other, and one that will take the hiker into a world full of unique sensations only enjoyable on this Costa da Morte.
