When I walked the Wainwright's Coast to Coast a few years ago we arranged for a company called the "White Knights" (mainly retired gentlemen) to transport our luggage from one B&B to the next - leaving us free to carry just a day-pack.
I have read many camino related FAQ which advise that pilgrims who transport their backpacks can't stay at the pilgrim refuges. This is not entirely correct. Many commercial, private albergues (including most of the Red de Albergues) accept reservations and pilgrims with transported luggage. It is mainly the church and municipal sponsored albergues that won't accept pilgrims who have vehicle backup.
You can use the local taxis to take your luggage from one place to the next - or you can use one of these services:

http://www.jacotrans.com/ingles/iquienes.htm : Carry backpacks, bikes, hire equipment.
Express Bourricot will transport your luggage as far as Logrono - apcaroline@hotmail.com
Pamplona to Burgos - Globetrotter Transportes will carry bicycles as well as rucksacks and other equipment Rucksacks cost €7 each per stage.

There is something for everyone on the camino - which is what makes it such a special trail.
Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.


We are a group walking from Najera to Burgos at the end of April 2008.
I want to contact globetrotters transporte but don't know how. Can you help?
I don't speak Spanish.


Guby :
The CSJ were told about Globetrotters by Australian pilgrims. Perhaps this group can help?

I run a travel company in Australia & through a personal interest & our specialistation in walking & cycling holidays in Europe & we have developed a new program for the full Camino route from Le Puy in France to Santiago.
Having watched the many walkers struggling under weighty packs & rushing for the last few places at a (not so free) hostel I thought there must be a better way.
So we have established a system to book the Camino week by week over 11 weeks whether you start in Le Puy, Conques, St Jean, Leon or any of the major starting points.
What we offer is pre-booked accommodation (usually 1 or 2-star hotels, baggage transfers (yes we move your bag from hotel to hotel) breakfast & a simple dinner most nights plus some background info on the route, maps etc. We also have a local 'help' service, based in the Pyrenees, so that if you need assistance someone can be called to help - speaking English, French or Spanish.
Yes, I appreciate this is a commercial venture that might not suit genuine pilgrims but for an increasing number of walkers who don't have the time for the weeks that the walk can take this is a way of doing the trip piece by piece, holiday after holiday.
It also helps the enormous number of more elderly walkers who can't carry a pack & who need a minimum level of confort & the security of a confirmed bed & bathroom each night. We help travellers from Australia or anywhere else in the world & our trips can depart on any day (from April to October) with no minimum or maximum numbers. Minimum duration is 1 week (7-nights)
You can get us by email or through our website http://www.outdoortravel.com.au
I & my staff are committed walkers & I have travelled this area extensively so we are happy to offer assistance or advice to anyone planning a more organise trip.
We also have a free colour brochure that I can post to you.
Let me know if we can help
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
There is a company in Madrid that provides short and long term secure storage in central Madrid for excess luggage.

Someone asked about Globetrotters Transport on this forum?

I was looking at a map of St Jean for a pilgrim yesterday and found a link to Globetrotters on the map. It is in the block on the top left corner of the map. You will find the map at:
