Bicycle transportation services on the Camino de Santiago

 

CORREOS transfers your own bicycle along the Camino. We send it to your starting point and back once you finish. 

 

  If you have decided to cycle the Route, please consider that Correos can send your bicycle to your designated starting or finishing point. Our full bicycle transportation service, the PAQ BICICLETA, can be booked for Spain or Europe at any Correos office. We send your bicycle neatly packaged and insured in a way that you need not fully disassemble it.
