Camino Bag transport, A Helping Hand

Bag transport while on the Camino is important because sometimes you need to lighten your load, and not carry your bag.  Whether it be as a result of injury, fatigue, or desire.  You may discover along the way that you don’t need as many things as you brought, or don’t want to carry them the entire route.

There are two very helpful options to keep in mind along the way if you feel you might need to lighten your load a bit.

There are private bag transport companies that will transport your baggage to the next stage and the Correos (post office) offers bag transport and postal services.

Mail services to accommodate so many needs.

  • Bag transport to your next albergue.
  • Mail ahead raingear, vitamins, luxury items, etc so you can have them at the city you choose.
  • Pick up items you mailed ahead. Assess if you’ll need to carry them for another week or so.  If not ship them ahead again.  Eg: raingear, makeup, nice clothes for city exploring, razors etc.
  • Mail items ahead to Santiago you realized you don’t need as a result of overpacking. Mail your extra luggage ahead to Santiago and pick it up there when you are finished with the Camino.
