The wild coastline of Galicia.
This north-western corner of the Iberian peninsula is pounded by the Atlantic Ocean, creating a dangerous coastline but also a spectacular travel experience. The new Lighthouse Way walking route from Malpica to Fisterra provides a sensory feast, exposing the visitor to charming local people, an interesting language and amazing seafood, along with mesmerising natural landscapes.

Maritime history on the Costa da Morte
The Lighthouse Way route exposes the intrepid walker to the dangerous Costa da Morte - the ‘Coast of Death’ - where the full force of the Atlantic Ocean pounds the Galician coastline. Many shipwrecks lie close to the rocks, and we used drone photography to give an idea of the inherent dangers and to show an aerial view of the English Cemetery, a memorial from local residents to the 172 crew members of the English battleship The Serpent who died here in 1890.
Seafood lover’s paradise
You’ll have the opportunity to eat some of the best seafood in the world whilst walking The Lighthouse Way. We filmed harbours and ports along the way, and at a local restaurant and the fish market in Fisterra, but along the entire route you can dine on treasure from the sea. The Galician speciality is ‘percebes’ - goose barnacles - which are expensive, reflecting the risks local fishermen take to catch them at their freshest, on dangerous rocks.
We interviewed an On Foot client who had just completed the entire Lighthouse Way route. They enjoyed the whole experience - nature encountered along the way, wild flowers, the people, the food - and will definitely come back from Canada to enjoy more On Foot holidays in Europe.
