Otherwise if choosen the vehicle rental option, we will pick up the car at the indicated place (airport or train station) and then we will go to the accommodation.
Depending on the arrival time, you can take a break or directly visit A ​​Coruña.
 
This first day will be completely dedicated to visiting the city. We will have a first contact enjoying a visit with an official guide to see the most emblematic places of the city. We recommend visiting the Tower of Hercules where you can enjoy the magnificent Roman lighthouse and its surroundings on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. We will walk through its sculpture park and we will recreate in its views. We will visit the Plaza de María Pita with its emblematic Town Hall and we will take a tour of the old town where we will find places of beauty such as the Romantic Garden of San Carlos, San Antón Castle, the Collegiate Church of Santa María del Campo or the Plaza de the Barbarians.

Day 2.  A Coruña - Betanzos - Pontedeume - Fragas do Eume - Ferrol

Breakfast at the accommodation in A Coruña to go to Betanzos. In Betanzos we will visit its impressive historic center with Ponte Vella, the Agustinas Recoletas Convent, the medieval walls and the constitution square among many areas of its declared historical-artistic complex. We depart from Betanzos to Pontedeume where along the way we can find the Mariñan pazo where we can walk through its gardens.
 
Once we are in Puentedeume we will see the very long stone bridge that crosses the Eume River and the Torreón dos Andrade. Here we will decide according to the time we have to eat in Ferrol directly or go see Fragas de Eume first.
 
If we have time to see it, Fragas de Eume is a magical place with an exceptional degree of conservation of flora and fauna. It is a thermophilic Atlantic Forest considered one of the best examples on the continent. In Ferrol we will take the opportunity to taste its exquisite cuisine. In the city we can visit its old town, the Naval Museum, the castle of San Felipe or its beautiful main square. Before returning to Coruña and having time we can pass through Castelo de Andrade where we will see a small, but in great condition, castle that dominates the entire valley in the Leboreiro rock.

We have breakfast at the accommodation and go towards the first stop, Malpica. We are going to take the opportunity to make a route along the famous Costa da Morte. We will find ourselves by road along the entire coast, seeing villages, cliffs and capes where even the best sailors of each era had trouble not being shipwrecked.
 
Malpica de Bergantiños is a coastal town where you can enjoy its port and beaches, but mainly we stopped here to enjoy the Miradoiro de Santo Adrián with its views towards the Sisargas Islands or go to the foot of the Punta Nariga lighthouse. Before going to Camariñas we will stop to see another lighthouse, the Roncudo Lighthouse. In this case the Lighthouse is not the main attraction,  but the spectacle is the environment where the waters violently break its cliffs and the views of the Ría de Corme and Laxe fill your eyes with fascination.
 
Towards the south we will go to Camariñas, we will see the town in a quiet walk and we will approach the Cabo de Vilán lighthouse. This lighthouse is very interesting because of its surroundings, the landscapes are as beautiful as they are cruel since they have witnessed several shipwrecks, including the sinking of the Serpent.
 
Once we are ready to hit back the road, we will go to Muxía where we will check-in. We can eat in town and calmly take a walk and visit the Muxía lighthouse and the Santuario da Virxe da Barca. At the end of day we will end up sleeping in the indicated hotel.

In the direction of Finisterre before arriving it is recommended to stop at the viewpoint of Fisterra where you can see an incredible landscape of the town.

Once we get to the town of Fisterra we will approach its lighthouse where we will contemplate the old “Finis Terrae”, that is, the end of the world. We can contemplate the place where it was thought that the sun went out in its waters.

It is a place of legends, fantasy and fascination. If after this landscape you are able to recover from this experience and if we have enough time, we can head towards the wonderful Ézaro Waterfall or eat in Finisterre, if we choose to follow the route on the way back we can stop at Cee and eat nearby its beaches or in its charming town.

La Cascáda de Ézaro is a place where we can enjoy tranquility walking along its wooden paths and looking at all its splendor in the viewpoints. It is a place where Kayaks are usually rented to get closer to the waterfall.

After this visit on the way back we have the option, if time allows, to go to Caldeiras Do Castro, a perfect place to relax and bathe in cold waters of natural pools. We can visit its Chapel and the picnic area.

When we get to Muros we can make a stop to see this beautiful fishing village with beaches, one of the most interesting is Area Maior where we can see a beach with practically no buildings with Mount Louro in the background.

We will see its port and fish market and we will head towards Noya. If we do not mind taking a detour through the area, we can go through the Ponte Nafonso and approach the Tambre hydroelectric power station also called the hydroelectric Cathedral, see its fishermen's refuge and go through its suspension bridge to see the landscape.

When we get to Noya we can take a walk through the town and see the parish of San Martín de Noia and the Plaza da Constitución. This town specializes in shellfish, especially cockle and clams. It is a good place to take a break and try its gastronomy.
