Again, soon as possible!
Or how about Finisterre - Muxia - Santiago? I think it is quite easy. You may have already walked this though.

Then you will know that it is the Camino Frances from Sarria. No serious hills, no tricky navigation, more accommodation and refreshment opportunities than anyone could possibly need and it is "official".
Thank you for your reply Yes I agree I am trying to get my wife to do it but she dont do hills.

There are a couple of quite steep, rocky stretches on the Tui to Santiago Camino but you could arrange for your wife's rucksack to be transported then those stretches will be more manageable.

Portuguese 2016/ coastal portugeuse April 2018
Just returned from walking the coastal from Porto 270kms. But by doing the walk from Vigo you can get your Compostela and it's a lovily walk . I don't do hills either very well but managed this . If I can do it so can your wife. It was my second camino and my husband's 5th.

I don´t remember any big uphills from Tui onwards... Easy walk and great food :)
Although I enjoyed the Portuguese side of this trail more (between Porto and Valenca).

Frances Sept/Oct 2019
Having just completed the Frances from SJPDP, there are plenty of hills from Sarria. It is essentially all hills. Now, they may seem minor to those who did the Pyrenees, Foncebadón and O Cebreiro. But for those starting in Sarria without that perspective, they may seem daunting.

We were at lunch the other day. A 20 something, tall, fit young man from London was sitting at the table next to us talking about how hard that last part was right before we got to the lunch site. The three of us in our late 50s and 60s honestly had no idea of what he exactly he was pointing to is being so difficult. Just saying.

Yup, it's all relative!

Camino Portuguese Porto to Santiago Sept/ Oct (2019)
I finished the Camino Portuguese inland route from Porto on 9 October. I recall that the steepest highest, rocky hill (405m) was between Ponte de Lima and Rubiaes. From Tui I found the small hills very easy. I am 69 and apart from a few long training walks in the previous few months, had not walked with a backpack since military training 50 years ago.

Why don't you check the etapas of the Portugese on Gronze.com ;). I just looked them up, from Tui - as far as I could see - the highest height difference was about 250 meters.

When I left for the Frances this summer, I did the same - height differences were of course a bit different - and found comparables routes in my area which I walked to assure myself that I could do the Frances, because I was sort of afraid that I wouldn't be able to do some parts.

That was a good test as well as warm-up for me and I was fine on the Frances. Maybe you and your wife could do the same.

Can anybody tell me of the easiest walk that will get the compastella and yes I have walked the Francis three times.
Last year I walked the Camino Portugues from Tuy to Santiago in 5 days. Normally it's a 6 day day Camino but we were under time pressure so we did Tuy to Redondela (33km) on the first day, which was a bit of a slog in 33 degrees C. Other than the 4 km climb into Redondela it was a pretty flat walk. It was very well signed and the albergues on the way were really good. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
