At the Camino Post Office, we work every day to improve our services and offer you, the pilgrim, what you need during the Camino de Santiago. That's why today we're very happy and proud to announce that it is now possible to get the Paq Mochila through our website! Something that you've requested and that we hope helps you organise your Camino.

You can see how it came about and its release HERE. 


With this new form of procurement, we're making sure you have all possible alternatives to make reservations the way you want. But, don't worry, if you still don't know about the Paq Mochila, we've prepared an entire article that will explain everything you need to know about this service, which will make the Camino much more simple and with which you'll be able to enjoy the Jacobean route more comfortably. Keep on reading to learn more.

What is the Paq Mochila?

The Paq Mochila is one of the main services we offer daily to pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago. We transport your backpack or luggage from the beginning of one stage until the next, from accommodation to accommodation. This way you can travel your stage much more comfortably and will also allow you to take more things on the Camino, much more than you can carry ;)

How does Paq Mochila work?

It’s really easy! All you have to do is tell us when and where you want us to pick up your backpack and where to leave it. You don't have go to a Post Office to do it: we go to the hostel or hotel that you indicate, where you begin your stage, and we leave it at your accommodation at the end of your journey.

You can reserve all stages of your Camino or just one, and if you already know your hostels or hotels, you can give us this information in advance and we can prepare everything before you begin your Camino. If you still don't know, no problem! You have until 8:00 pm. the day before the transfer of your backpack or suitcase to let us know where to pick up your luggage.


Once the service is reserved, the first day you'll hang our Paq Mochila envelope on your backpack or suitcase so that we can identify it (you can also find these envelopes at your accommodation). Then you just have to leave your luggage at reception at the hostel or hotel before 8 am on the day of the transfer. We will arrange for you to have it at your destination accommodation before 2:30pm.

How do I make the reservation?

We want your Camino to be as comfortable as possible, that’s why there are different ways to reserve PaqMochila:

To make a reservation, you just have to know the dates and stages where you want us to make the transport and then follow the directions that we give you for reservation and payment (by card or PayPal if you do it online and with cash or bank transfer if you reserve by telephone or mail).

How does the new online reservation work?

Making your Paq Mochila reservation online is extremely simple and intuitive. The first thing you should select is the Camino that you want to travel; it can be a Camino that's already predefined (From Sarria, Oviedo, Leon, etc.) or you can design your own Camino, indicating the start and finish you've chosen.

If you already know all of the hotels or hostels where you'll stay on your Camino, let us know and have all of your transfers organised. If you still don't know, don't worry; you can let us know later, even while travelling the Camino, but always before 8:00pm. the day before transport. When you've finished your online reservation, we will send you an email with all of the reservation information and with the access code to make changes.


Where do we offer this service?

Paq Mochila is offered on the Camino Francés from Roncesvalles, on the Camino Portugués from Tui and A Guarda and along Variante Espiritual, on the Camino Primitivo from Oviedo, on the Camino del Norte from Irun, on the Camino Inglés from Ferrol, on the Camino Sanabrés from Ourense and on the  Camino to Fisterra and Muxía.

Hola. I have paid the flat rate for the transfers. I am trying to put in my itinerary but I need to change my start date and the form won't let me. Please let me know how to change my start date so I can put in my accommodations for pick up and drop off for my camino. Thank you.

I have reserved paq mochila from espinal to Santiago. I am confused how to start the stages. I will be leaving El Espinal on September September 26 and walking to Larrasona arriving there September 27. My stage 1 has this information including the hostels --the stage has the date 27/09/2023--is that the date it will arrive in Larrasona or is that the date it will be picked up in El Espinal? Thanks for a quick response

I can only choose dates up until October 5th. So the website is only allowing booking from one month ahead of time. I have tried three different browsers (Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome) to be clear, I'm trying to ship 2 pieces of luggage (15kg each) on October 12th from Hotel Camarote in Leon to Santiago to pick up at the end of the walk.

If you want to send luggage directly to Santiago, you must contract the Paq Peregrino. The Paq Mochila is a luggage transport service from stage to stage and from lodging to lodging. You can hire Paq Peregrino here: .

Hello! I am trying to book a luggage transfer from my hotel in Leon direct to the post office in Santiago for October 12, 2023. I will pick it up after my walk. The website will not allow me to choose any date in October. Can you help?!

Hi, Nancy. You should have no problem booking before November 1st, when availability of the backpack transport service is limited to The French Way from Sarria to Santiago. Please, try again. ¡Buen Camino!

Hi! Sorry but by the moment we offer our #PaqMochila in 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. If you are walking the Via de la Plata and you continue to Galicia by the Sanabria Way, we could transport you rucksacks since A Gudiña. If you connect with the French Way, there we also could transport them.

Is there any possibility of using Paq Mochila on the Via de la Plata, going northwards out of Sevilla? I have used your service to transfer my bici from Murcia to various places on the Via and have found it an excellent service. This year, I had been hoping I could use the paq mochila service, as I'm a senior citizen, but still cycling.
