Has anyone information on sending a bag to Santiago from Lisbon? I am especially keen to find out the name of a courier company that might do this? We are travelling in Spain after walking the Camino Portugues and will need things other than our walking gear. Thanks for your help. Joanne

An easy option is to go to the post office and send to Ivar here on the site - for instructions, go to Camino Resources (top of page) then select Ivar from LHS, and '
Ship things ahead to Santiago, I will store it for 60 days (or more)’

Thanks - I've been in touch with Ivar and will get the bags sent to him for storage. I suppose we were wondering if there were any other options than using the postal service - which in some countries is not particularly reliable. We'll just have to trust that the bags will get there I think!

Hi, Joanne,
You could use a shipping company. I spent an academic year in Lisbon a few years ago and we had stuff shipped home with DHL, which seems to be the most popular shipping company in Europe, more than Fed Ex or UPS (though I have had things shipped to me in Portugal via UPS, so I'm sure they have offices there, too).

Joanne K, I've used the Portuguese postal service to send my extra travelling cloths to Ivar on both occasions when I walked from Porto without any problems and found the workers at the post office very helpful.
Bom Camino

Good to know, Vasco. It sounds like the problems Ivar reported were only with people who used the Portuguese postal service to mail things to general delivery at the Santiago Post Office. It suggests that people sending stuff to Santiago from Portugal should send them to Ivar! Bom caminho, Laurie

Thanks Vasco. Your recent good experience with the postal service on the Portuguese Camino makes me lean towards that option. Joanne
