    Packing List - What's missing?

    Hi all, Long time reader, first time poster. I'll be walking my first Camino this June/July (Norte, Primitivo and Finisterre). I'm coming in around 7.5kgs skin-out weight before food/water, so about 5kg pack weight depending on what I'm wearing. The weight is okay for my size, but would love...

    Good/new guidebooks?

    Next spring I'm planning to walk from Santiago to Finisterre and then on to Muxia, slowly, allowing time to take things in. After a look around this forum and on Amazon, I can't find much to read over the long winter ... I'm aware of the John Brierley book, which covers that route along with...

    Finisterre Day Tour recommendation

    I'm finishing my Frances Camino first week in October and I'm looking for a recommendation for a tour for Day Trip to Finisterre. Can someone recommend a tour company or if you have used one of the tour companies, was it worthwhile? Can you recommend one company over another? Or is there a...

    Advice for Walking the Camino del Norte

    Last summer (2016) I walked the Camino del Norte, Camino Primitivo and Camino Finisterre. The beauty of the camino is that you never know where the path will take you. I set out with the sole intention of walking the entire del Norte, but though the advice of a priest, I took a detour into the...

    Muxia or Finisterre first?

    We are in Oliveira at the albergue staying overnight and have about 5km till we reach the split for Muxia or Finisterre. I'd originally planned to walk to Muxia first then along the coast to Finisterre. But looking at the map the gradient looks really steep out of Muxia and not something my...

    Best sections to skip from Santiago to Finisterre?

    My husband and I want to walk to Finisterre, but we may not have all five days (4 days of walking, then the bus back). Nor do we want to do killer 30-mile days. Is it possible to take a bus half-way there and walk the rest? And if so, which is better, the first half/quarter of the way, or the...

    Private Albergue (Searching for Julian)

    I stayed in a private albergue on the way to Finisterre run by this man called Julian. His hospitality was exceptional and I would like to stay there again this year when I walk the Camino from Lisbon to Finisterre with my wife. All that I can remember is that it was before we reached...

    How long to stay in Santiago?

    Hi all, Having got some great advice already I am back with a few more questions! How long do people typically stay in Santiago? I will be arriving on the afternoon of my last day's walk. If I left the following afternoon would that be too short or should I wait until that night? I want to head...

    Hello all, I'm wondering if there is a way to walk the Portuguese route and then head towards Finisterre from around Padron,skipping Santiago. We would go to Santiago afterwards, but I'd love to save it for after Finisterre this time. Are there any trails? Accommodations? Thank you!

    Finisterre to Taize

    I hope to be in Finisterre around October 6 and in Taize October 8 or 9. Would I be able to rent a car and drive up the coast? Is there a logical place to drop off the car and then train/bus to Taize? Also, is there a safe way to determine if anyone would like to ride share? This is my first...

    I am entering the last few days of my Camino to Santiago and have planned for 2 extra days that I won't need. I would like to walk some of the finisterre Camino; particularly Muxia to Finisterre. Is it possible to bus from Santiago to Muxia and get a credential in order to walk from Muxia to...
