    If you decide that you want to be on the Way without your rucksack so that you do not have to carry too much weight, or to have some extra things with you, CORREOS sends you your rucksack or suitcase every day (Sundays and holidays too) from section to section to the hostels or accommodation you tell us. 

   With out PAQ MOCHILA, we collect your luggage in the morning from the accommodation you tell us, and take it to your next hostel, hotel or boarding house before 14: 30 of the same day, so that you have all your things with you when you finish the section. 

 This section-to-section rucksack transfer service is available for the French Way from Roncesvalles, the Portuguese Way from Tui, the  Original or Primitive Way from Oviedo, the Northern Way from Llanes (via Gijón or Avilés), the  English Way  from Ferrol and A Coruña, the Sanabria Way from A Gudiña  and the  Fisterra Way.

 Our rucksack and suitcase transfer service is available for all these Ways from 1st April until 31st October and all year round from O Cebreiro to Santiago de Compostela (except for the 24th, 25th and 31st of December and 1st January).

 

How does the Paq Mochila work? It is actually very simple! 

 

  • You may book your PAQ MOCHILA from CORREOS in three very simple ways: on-line, per e-mail o by phone. The easiest way is using this on-line form. You can fill it with all the information that we need to transfer your luggage. We need to know, at least, which Camino you are going to be doing, when, how many Sections you want to book and the details of your first accommodation. In this way, you can arrange for, book and pay for the service (by credit card or through Paypal) in one go. If you already know the details of all the accommodations for your Camino, you may also give us this information and you can arrange your luggage transfer for the whole trip. If you do not have this information, do not worry, you can tell us later, even while you are doing the Camino. Please beware we will only take bookings up until 21:00 hours of the day prior to the luggage transfer you want to book. Once you complete your booking, we will send you an e-mail with all the details and the password you will need to make any changes to your reservation.

 

Booking

 

  •  You can also send us an e-mail at paqmochila@correos.com or send a WhatsApp or call +34 683 44 00 22. You need to tell us about the dates and Sections you want us to take the rucksack for you and then follow the instructions to complete the booking and payment (direct payment or bank transfer).

Once you complete your reservation, we start up! 

 

 

                                 

 

  1. Once you complete your reservation, we will arrange for the luggage pick-up and delivery using the information you have submitted (starting date, hostels, hotels or boarding houses where you will stay..). Your rucksack or suitcase will be assigned a tracking number to ensure proper transportation.
  2. The day you start your Camino, we will be ready to pick-up your rucksack or suitcase from the place you have indicated in the form. You just have to get up and leave your luggage at the reception before 08:00 and you can start your Camino. The first day you need to leave our Paq Mochila envelope on top of your rucksack or suitcase so that we can identify it. You will find these envelopes in any accommodation on the Camino, but you can also download them here. Our postmen and women will collect your rucksack, place a tag with a tracking number on it and they will transfer it for the rest of the journey.
  3. While you walk unburdened, our postmen and women will take your rucksack or suitcase to the next accommodation on your list before 14.30, so that you can have all your things with you once you finish each section.

 

For any question or queries, you can read our FAQs or send us an email at paqmochila@correos.com or call +34 683 44 00 22 (also using WhatsApp) from 8:30 to 21:00 hours.

So that you can travel light along the Way

 

We transfer your rucksack or suitcase from accommodation to accommodation!! In this way, you can walk more comfortably, unburdened, and enjoying every step of the Way. We will take your luggage every day to your next hostel or hotel.

 

Bicycle transportation services 

We send your bicycle to your starting or finishing point

Luggage transfer

For everything you want in or out of your rucksack 

 

With our Paq Peregrino you can send suitcases or parcels to any point in the Camino -hostel, hotel, Correos office, etc. - so that your stuff is there when you arrive. This way you can have extra clothes or other items and not only the ones you take for your walk. You can also send back whatever you may have in your rucksack for the Camino that you no longer need.

 

Prepaid Card

So that you have nothing to worry about other than just enjoying the Camino 

 

In Correos we have a prepaid card that is not linked to any bank account. In this way, you can do the Camino without taking your credit or debit cards with you. You will only have to top it up with the money you need and then top up again if you run out of balance. This is a simple, safe and comfortable way of taking your money along the Camino.

 

 

Stamping Your Credencial

So that you have the best stamps on your Pilgrim's Passport 

Correos offices along the Way stamp your Credencial or Pilgrim's Passport with our special stamps. Many of them display a significant tourist attraction of that particular place for you to keep as a souvenir.

 

 

Sending parcels on the Camino de Santiago 
 

Send your parcels without having to come to our Correos offices!

 

You can send a parcel from any of the over one-hundred CORREOS offices located along the Way and from some of our “Tiendas Amigas del Camino”, a network of shops and accommodations from where you can send parcels any time you want. This service will help you get rid of the content of your luggage that you no longer need, buy some souvenirs, typical products... without having to worry about carrying them with you. 
 

 

 

Lockers in Santiago

So that you can freely visit the Cathedral or enjoy the city
