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.

The trip to the coast shouldn’t be missed! Great stops and great views along the way, along with some very interesting information about Galacia. Worth it even on a cloudy/rainy day! Don’t let the weather stop you from going! Our tour had mostly Spanish speaking people on it so the guide focused much of her talk in Spanish. Still did some in English, but not as much.

The group size is very big (full large bus). You are at the mercy of your group for timely departure at each stop. Recommend the operator to indicate group size before booking - we would have opted for a smaller tour, even at a higher price. The last stop seemed unnecessary with nothing to see. Galician delights mentioned in the trip description did not seem to be a stop. Would have liked more information on this trip. A paper with QR codes was provided, but considering the travel by bus, this can make people “car sick” to read.
