DAY-TO-DAY ITINERARY

1st day: ARRIVAL IN  SARRIA.
Sarria is the main town between Ponferrada and Santiago de Compostela. The Romanesque Church of Our Saviour, with its Gothic façade, and the convent of Magdalena are well worth a visit, as are the Rua Maior main street and the ancient medieval castle tower.

2nd day - Walking Stage:  SARRIA - PORTOMARIN (23 Km/ 14 mi - difficulty 1/3)
Expect a peaceful walk in shady oak woods through pretty villages on quiet country roads. The village of Barbadelo (580m) has a beautiful Romanesque church that is worth a visit. The village of Ferreiros is also on route. When you arrive in Portomarin, you can chill out at one of the numerous outdoor cafés in the main square.

3rd day- Walking Stage:   PORTOMARIN - PALAS DE REI (25.6 Km /15 mi - difficulty 2/3)
The day starts by crossing over the Belesar dam footbridge, followed by a gradual climb ending in the village of Ligonde. This stage runs mainly along andaderos (paths), next to the road, or in some cases along paved trails. There are many signs indicating that we are on a pilgrim route, including the famous "cruceiros" (crucifixes). Check out the Cruceiro of Lameiros and the Monastery of Our Saviour of Vilar de Donas (2 km detour off the Camino).

4th day- Walking Stage:   PALAS DE REI - ARZUA (29.5 Km/18 mi- difficulty 2/3)
On this stage, you will move into the province of Corunna, where you will find expanses of eucalyptus and pine trees and numerous medieval bridges, such as those in Leboreiro and Furelos, as well as one of the most idyllic locations on the Camino in Ribadiso do Baixo near Arzua. Melide, which is famous for its octopus, is an obligatory stop for pilgrims and lovers of good food, whilst Arzua is famous for its designation of origin cheese
This long walking day can be split into two with an overnight stay in Melide (15km + 14km).

5th day- Walking Stage:  ARZUA - RUA (18.5 Km/11 mi- difficulty 1/3)
Today’s route is a nice and easy walk over gentle slopes through woodland, alternating with stretches near the road, we have to go through sometimes areas, ending in Rua (500 m before the village of Pedrouzo). Don't miss the beautiful sculpture of Saint James the Pilgrim in the Church of the same name in Boente.

6th day- Walking Stage:   RUA - SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA (18.5 + 4 km /11 + 2 mi - difficulty 1/3)
The last stage on your Camino de Santiago. The proximity of your goal will bring mixed feelings. On one hand, you will be eager to reach the desired end of the journey, yet on the downside, the feeling that comes to every pilgrim is that the journey is over. A stage of anxiety and joy, where distance does not matter, because you are “already there”. The route today is flat, except for the climb to San Marcos, from Lavacolla, passing Monte do Gozo and down to Santiago de Compostela. The entire city of Santiago de Compostela is magical, but especially its Cathedral, which deserves a special visit.
Here you'll  begin to cycle

7th day- Cycling Stage:  SANTIAGO - OLVEIROA (54 km - difficulty 2/3)
Today’s route will take you through small villages and across ancient Roman bridges. Your destination is the medieval town of Negreira where you will be able to visit Pazo do Cotón, the country house of the Cotón family, and the chapel next door, dedicated to St Mauro. From A Barcala, the Camino continues by the side of mountains and across the river Barcala. As you climb Monte Aro, you will enjoy great views of the Fervenza dam before you reach the wild Serra de Castelo mountain range and Xallas valley. Small hills and green pastures welcome you on your way.

8th day- Cycling Stage:   OLVEIROA - FINISTERRE (40 km - difficulty 2/3)
From Olveiroa the track follows the river to Logoso and goes past the hermitage of Nosa Señora (Our Lady). After this, the trail continues downhill through the pine groves of Alto do Cruzeiro da Armada. From here, you will get your first glimpse of the sea!
On your last day to Finisterre you will travel along a beautiful path, hugging the cliffs and coves along the coast. Your final destination is Cape Finisterre, where you will come to  the magnificent lighthouse. Watch the sun set at the ‘End of the World’.

9th day: FINISTERRE.
After breakfast, free time to return to Santiago- Transfer not included.
