Full description
After getting picked up from your hotel in Santiago de Compostela, begin your journey along the Galician coast. Your first stop will be at a traditional Galician village. Here, head to the top of a Roman bridge where you can admire breathtaking views of the river. Next, head to Muxia Lighthouse, where you can visit the famous sanctuary and head to the top of the lighthouse for a unique coastal experience. Continue your tour with a visit to the region's most important lighthouse, Finisterre. From atop of this picturesque lighthouse, admire panoramic views of what was considered by the Roman's to be the end of the earth. Break for lunch in the town of Finisterre before heading to the Ezaro Waterfall, the only waterfall that arrives directly into the ocean. Later, head to Carnota, where you can see the largest horréo, an old granary suspended by pillars, in existence. Finally, head to the village of Muros, a traditional coastal village. Enjoy some free time for a coffee or stroll around the main square before heading back to Santiago.

    Absolutely recommended experience. Personal, as well as prepared and available, super engaging. Really well organized tour to enjoy the best the Costa da Morte offers from every point of view: landscape, cultural and culinary, in total relaxation and with a few laughs that no doubt will be able to snatch the very nice Elvio.

    Bien planificado el recorrido, en general, los tiempos adecuados y muy buenas explicaciones del guía, Martín. Muy amables él y el conductor. Solamente creo que la empresa no debería vender todas las plazas del autobús, iba lleno de gente, sin ventilación natural y eso no podemos permitírnoslo en tiempos de pandemia, por seguridad de todos. Y que la música en el autobús no vaya a volumen tan alto. En cuanto a los sitios, casi imposible comer en Fisterra pueblo si uno va solo, no te atienden en los restaurantes porque prefieren darle prioridad a mesas con más comensales, mucho menos si no llevas reserva hecha. Como era la hora de la comida, todos estaban llenos o no admitían a los que íbamos en solitario. Una odisea buscar un sitio donde comer, que definitivamente no fue el mejor en cuanto a sabor pero sí en amabilidad y disposición en atender (El Capitán).
