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.

1. SEND YOUR BICYCLE TO START THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO:
If you want to send your bicycle to your starting point, please come to any of our post offices to book the Paq Bicicleta. There you shall be given our special packaging so that you can pack and send your bicycle and a tracking number you can use on our website www.correos.es.
You can send it to the Correos office of the place where you will be starting your Camino (we will store it for 15 days for free) and, if your Camino begins in Roncesvalles, we will send it to the hostel.
To ensure that your bicycle is there on time, please send it three or four working days before your planned start. If you need help or have any questions, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
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.
