Accomodation and credencial from Santiago to Finisterre only


New Member

my name is Renato and together with my girlfriend we are planning to hike next week from Santiago to Finisterre only before going to Portugal.

A couple of questions about accomodation:

- if we plan to stay at refugios, we need the credencial. Is it possible to have it even if we hike from Santiago to Finisterre and have it in Santiago at short notice?

- if not possible, what are the options for camping in the area? Is it worth to take the tent with us?

We are flying off to Santiago on Wednesday, thanks for any feedback and suggestion.

The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
