Luggage transport from SJPP to a hotel in Estella or Los Arc


New Member
We only have 5-7 days this summer to start our first Camino, and have chosen to start in SJPP and get to Estella or Los Arcos (we prefer to come back in the future and finish the Camino versus just using our days to start in Sarria).

We really don't want to forward our other vacation luggage from stage to stage, but instead would like to just get it from SJPP to a hotel in Estella or Los Arcos and have it waiting there for us when we get there a week or so later. Has anyone done this, or do most people just forward their other luggage from town to town along the way?

Alternatively, we have a hotel booked in Pamplona that we will be checking into after our short Camino, so maybe it would be easier to have luggage sent directly there? Are hotels in Pamplona used to these type of arrangements?

Contact http://www.jacotrans.com/ and ask for an estimate. This is the type of service they provide and, as such, they maintain close contact with lodging owners all along the Camino. I suspect they may have dealt with this before. Their email is toni.transporte@gmail.com. or jacotrans@jacotrans.com.

That said, if you are only carrying a suitcase each it is about 5 Euros/day to transfer. If staying at private lodgings, consider daily transfer instead. Hope this helps. Buen Camino!
