To Carry or Not To Carry? The Luggage Transfer Dilemma.

Many people who consider a walking holiday along the Camino de Santiago often worry if they'll be weighed down with heavy bags or suitcases for the duration of their trip and wonder how they'd manage carrying a full load for over 20kms per day.  Surely the walking for long periods of time every day has to be chicken soup for the soul enough right?

This is where we come to the rescue and tell you about our full luggage transfer service

With our luggage transfer option you can have up to 15kg per person transported to your accommodation every day that you're walking. This means there is no need to carry more than a small backpack with just your essentials in it each day.  That's a load off, right!

This option is included with all our Camino Holidays and is available on its own for the chancers not choosing to book hotels in advance. Book your luggage transfers only here!

All you need to do is leave your suitcase labelled with your name at the hotel reception at 8:00am when you are heading off for the Camino.

It will be transferred and waiting prettily for you in your next hotel room. Voilà!

Dilemna solved!

Follow the Camino organises walking and cycling holidays in Europe for adventure seekers from all over the world. Since 2006, we’ve offered a great range of manageable walks and cycles for all age groups, in particular on the famous Camino de Santiago. We were the first ever tour operator to operate the Camino de Santiago by creating manageable sections along the main routes to Santiago de Compostela. We are often copied but never equalled!

To find out which route might be best for you, contact our Camino Planners through the form on the top-right-hand side of the page to get your free customised Camino itinerary.
