The Post Office offers a transport service for backpacks and bags to make the Way easier for pilgrims.
For pilgrims who prefer to travel as comfortably as possible on the Way of St James, unburdened by their rucksack, Correos will transport their rucksack between most of their pilgrimage stages:
Paq Mochila is an option offered by CORREOS for transporting your rucksack and suitcases to your chosen accommodation along the Way of St James. It will collect your items first thing in the morning at the accommodation stated and deliver them before 2.30 pm to your chosen hostel, hotel or lodging for the next stage. That way you can travel along the Way of St James unburdened by your luggage.
