Can I take the bus to Finisterre?


The question was:

I wanna know if there are any bus services I can avail from Santiago to Finisterre? And how much time does it take to reach there by bus? Can I reach Finisterre, spend some time and get back to Santiago in the same day?

    Yes, there are buses for Finisterre but it takes 3 and 1/2 hours to get there. But you can do the the trip in one day if you start at 9 from Santiago. The last bus to come back (if I remeber correctly) start at 5 p.m.

      Hmm, walk the whole part in one day, or by bus? Walking is quite optimistic since it is 90k. Most people walk this part in three days, and I can really recommend it. Leaving the busy city behind you and walk in one of the most quiet and beautiful stages!

    There are two bus operators ; the one covers a coastal route and the other through the interior. Make very sure that the coastal route has a bus returning at a time convenient for you before you buy a return ticket – we were a couple of people who had to by a second ticket with the other bus operator as we had to get back to Santiago for a flight and the Coastal bus did not have a trip back until the next day.
