Planned Camino Frances in May 2023
We are walking the Camino Portuguese heading north from Tomar . A friend walking with us desperately needs to buy hiking poles. Where can we find a store on the Camino that sells poles? Thanks for any assistance
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

€83,-
Lots of Decathlons in Portugal. Not sure what route you are following, but they are in most of the larger cities (but sadly, not Tomar).
 
...and ship it to Santiago for storage. You pick it up once in Santiago. Service offered by Casa Ivar (we use DHL for transportation).
decathlon, or ask at airport as people leave poles there as not allowed on flights
 
I always buy inexpensive poles when I arrive to walk the Caminos. I always used to go to Decathlon to purchase them; sometimes walking quite a distance to get there. I now check on Google maps for China Bazaars in the city and there are usually a couple to choose from for a similar price of 7-9 euros each, and the location is often closer to where I am staying.
