Hello! I am planning on starting in Sarria and finishing in Muxia/Finisterre in late september. I was wondering if anyone had info on which airports to fly in and out of for this. Thank you so much.

Best,

Happy planning/dreaming

It would be easiest to fly into Santiago and then take a train to Sarria. At the end of your camino take a bus back from Finisterre or Muxia to SdC and then fly out.

Wow thank you all so much. Sounds like a plan! If I fly out on September 15 from Los Angeles and fly out of Santiago de Compostela on September 30 do you think that is enough time do all I want to accomplish or should I try to get a few more days in there so it’s not rushed?

I want to fly into Madrid, train to Sarria, walk to Santiago, then continue on to Muxia and Finisterre, then bus back to Santiago for my flight on 9/30. I may be able to leave on 9/12 instead of 9/15 if you think that’s a good idea.

Also, once I have my plane flights, what are the next steps? Do you recommend just browsing through all the threads here to prepare or a particular guidebook? Sorry for all the questions. Thank you so much.

Zach,
More time would allow you to relax/recover a bit before starting to walk.

Many pilgrims do indeed start from Sarria . Reading various threads here on the forum would certainly help with your planning.

Also check out this

It's always better to have more time! There's lots to see and do in Spain. You won't regret having extra time.
