Full description

See some of the highlights of Spain's northeasterly coastline and the Serra da Capelada mountain on a one-day excursion from Santiago de Compostela. Admire the area's most iconic sights with your guide, including the Vixía Herbeira cliffs, San Andrés de Teixido, and Cape Ortegal.

First stop on Galicia's coast is the charming fishing village of Cedeira. Then you'll ascend to the top of the Serra da Capelada mountain on your tour bus and see how the majestic landscape opens up into forests and meadows scattered with wild horses and isolated villages.

Explore the ancient village of San Andrés de Teixido, home to the sanctuary of San Andrés, a place of worship dating back to Celtic times. After this unique visit, stop to marvel at the panorama from the soaring cliffs of Vixía Herbeira, the highest in Continental Europe.

After descending, finish your trip by exploring Cape Ortegal, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Cantabrian Sea. Here, you can admire the oldest rocks of the Iberian peninsula and see a picturesque lighthouse perched on top of the stunning natural environment.
