Enjoy a day at the end of the world.
  • Scenic drive.

  • Amazing landscape.

  • Part of the Lighthouse Route.

  • The end of the world.


Discover the coast of Death, named long ago by British sailors due to the many shipwrecks that happened in this part of the Galician coast. During this excursion you will discover amazing coastal landscapes and understand why in former times this stretch of coast was so dangerous for sailing ships. In a windy day, the experience is not to be missed! 

We will stop at Cape Touriñan, the westernmost headland in Spain and one of the westernmost places in mainland Europe. We will then follow the Coast of Death towards Cape Fisterra,  the Finis Terrae of the Roman world. The cape is also the end of the journey for many pilgrims on the Way of St James, who after visiting Santiago de Compostela continue walking to End of the World. The views of the Ocean from the lighthouse and the feeling of Land’s End are one of the highlights of Galicia.
