CORREOS transfers your rucksack, suitcase or luggage along the Way so that you can walk unburdened and enjoy the routes and sections as much as possible.

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 video shows how our Paq Mochila and other pilgrim services work in the Camino de Santiago. For example, our Paq Peregrino to send your luggage and suitcases home or to any Correos office on the Camino, so that you can collect them once you reach, or our Locker service in Santiago, where you can leave your things before you go to the Cathedral.
We transfer your rucksack
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
Decide where you want to start the Camino and we will send your bicycle there from any of our Correos offices. Once you finish the Way you can again go to the nearest post office and send it back home. We send your bicycle neatly packaged and insured in a way that you need not disassemble it.
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.
Lockers in Santiago
So that you can freely visit the Cathedral or enjoy the city
Our Pilgrim's Office at Rúa do Franco, 150 metres from the Plaza del Obradoiro, has lockers. You can leave your rucksack, suitcase, bike, trekking pole... before you go into the Cathedral or to visit Santiago without having to worry about your luggage.
To help you with anything you may need
We have over 150 Correos offices along all the Caminos. We will be delighted to welcome you and help you with anything you need.
