Hi I'm thinking of walking to Finisterre are albergues open, this time of year? I'm here in Santiago many are already closed?

Any pointers would be helpful?

Too many and too often!
The Xunta albergues are open all year but private albergues may be closed.

Gronze.com includes open/close dates on the albergue listings.

Or, easier is to download the Buen Camino app. On the page listing accommodations for each town you can see right away which ones are open year round. Here's the page for Negreira - I've put a red check mark next to those open all year.
