     How does the Rucksack transfer service along the Camino de Santiago work?  


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



If you decide that you want to walk the Way without your rucksack so that you don't have to carry too much weight, or you want to have some extra things with you, CORREOS will transport your rucksack or suitcase every day (Sundays and Bank Holidays included) from stage to stage to the hostels or any accommodation you indicate. 

With our PAQ MOCHILA, we collect your luggage early in the morning from your booked accommodation, and take it to your next hostel or hotel before 2:30 the same day, so that you have all your things with you when you finish the stage. 

This stage to stage rucksack transfer service is available along the Camino Francés (The French Way) from Roncesvalles and from Somport*, along the Camino Portugués (The Portuguese Way) from Tui, along the Camino Primitivo (The Original or Primitive Way) from Oviedo, along the Camino del Norte (The Northern Wayfrom Irún, along the Camino Inglés (The English Way) from Ferrol, along the Camino Sanabrés (The Sanabria Way) from Ourense and along the Camino a Fisterra y Muxía (The Way to Fisterra).

Our rucksack and suitcase transfer service is available along all these Caminos 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).

*Please check the availability of our rucksack transferring services on the French Way from Somport sending a mail to paqmochila@correos.com or calling +34 683 44 00 22 (you can also use Whatsapp).


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

  • There are three very simple ways to  book your PAQ MOCHILA with CORREOS: on-line, by e-mail or by phone. The easiest way is using this on-line form. Please fill in 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 stages 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 of your accommodation for your Camino, you may also give us this information and you can arrange your luggage transfer for the whole trip. If you don't have this information, don't worry. You can let us know later as you are walking your Camino. Please beware we will only take bookings up until 21:00 pm 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.




  • 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 let us know the dates and stages you want us to transport your rucksack and then follow the instructions to complete the booking and payment (direct payment or bank transfer).


You can hire our PAQ MOCHILA from 4 Euros per stage if you hire 5 or more stages *
You can also hire the service for a single stage. In this case, the price is 5 Euros per stage*  

         * The price includes a single bag of max. 20 kg (44 pounds) and shipping for stages of less than 25 kilometres (15,5 miles). Maximum distance for routes on bicycle is 60 km/day.      


Once you complete your reservation, we will do the rest! 

                                 Paq Mochila for rucksack transfer on the Camino de Santiago


  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 or hotels where you will stay). Your rucksack or suitcase will be assigned a tracking number.
  2. The day you start your Camino, we will be ready to pick-up your rucksack or suitcase from the place you have indicated on the form. You just have to get up and leave your luggage at reception before 08:00 am 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 can pick up these envelopes in all of the accommodation along the Camino, but you can also download them here. Our postal staff 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 postal staff will take your rucksack or suitcase to the next accommodation on your list before 2:30 pm, so that you can have all your things with you once you finish each stage.
