Backpack courier service along Camino Portugues?

September 2019: first Camino, can only do partial this year due to recent knee replacement
We are starting out next week from Lisbon to walk the Camino Portuguese! But I am starting to wonder if there might be some days where we will feel incapable of carrying our bags, what is the alternative in Portugal? I know in Spain the correo service will take the bags for a small fee and deliver them to your next Albergue but is there anything like that in Portugal? And how do you find them?

Thank you Tincatinker - it looks like the service is only available from Porto onwards with Tuitrans, or only as part of the complete package with Camino Ways. We plan to carry our backpacks ourselves, but would just like to have some idea if an alternative is available should we need it. Looks like from Lisbon to Porto, we might have to get creative (and spend a bit more money) should the need arise; perhaps hire a taxi to carry our bags ahead?

No, you don't have to be a Camino Ways client to use Tuitrans


But I think that you are correct in your assessment of the stages before Porto.

Just thinking through the options, you could also strip all the non-essentials (yes, I know, hard to define) out of your luggage and send it via the Portuguese post office (known as CTT) on to your planned accommodation in Porto. Try to keep your packs as light as possible for Lisbon-Porto, which I've read features some long stretches without many accommodation options. Then use Tuitrans from Porto north.
