Cueva de los Verdes, Lanzarote

4.3
#2 of 19 in Nature in Lanzarote
Marvel at unusual rock formations in a kaleidoscope of colors on a tour of Cueva de los Verdes, a volcanic cave system. Its formation is a result of the eruptive activity of the La Corona volcano around 3,000 years ago, which created an underground tunnel. Listen to guide explain the unusual geology of the cave, tell how it has served as a hiding place, and reveal its special secret. The 1 km (0.6 m) cave has uneven floors, many steps, and low ceilings. It may not be suitable for those with mobility problems. Sensible shoes are recommended. Put Cueva de los Verdes into our Lanzarote road trip planning tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This hike is really beautiful and characteristic. The route is accessible to children, some difficulty for those with walking difficulties. Beautifully maintained and enhanced, this site is definitely one of those to be put on the list if you visit the island. Beautiful experience! To avoid during the Central hours of the day.

  • Although the visit is perhaps amusing was that less was struck between which they did in Lanzarote. I had never been in a cave created by a volcano, but I've liked more others like the one of Nerja or the Soplao.

  • I recommend to wear shoes and comfortable clothes to do well the tour of the galleries. They warned me that it would take me a surprise and yes I took it and freaked out! Inside the cave the temperature is pleasant. Suitable to go with small children (strollers do not).

  • Just gorgeous! Try and go when there's something on, music in a cave must be pretty special. Near the coast, crashing waves and amazing flora maybe leave time for a walk. If it's a choice between this and the lava tube cave down the road go here. The other cave is cool but this is really beautiful and you can eat here too.
  • A great tour of a fantastic natural phenomenon! The tour guide is clear and informative. The lighting has been done expertly to add to the ambience and wow-factor. I just wish it was possible to explore the other few kilometres of tunnel!
  • Great experience, good tour guide. Not to be missed, but be prepared - wear sensible footwear and expect low head room and steps up and down. To hear a classical performance here would be amazing
  • Reasonably priced at €9:50 per adult. The guided tour is given in English and Spanish and takes around 50 minutes. You need to be able bodied for this tour as there are lots of steps up and down which require you to bend also where the ceiling height is low. There were areas where at 5ft4 I had to bend too. I absolutely loved being in the caves.
  • As caves go this is fairly poor with only the novelty of the pool of water and an underground concert hall to break the monotony The lighting was poor and on ore than one occasion I had to use my phone to see where to put my feet The guide was the worst part though - she walked very fast and didn't wait for all of the group to arrive before giving her speeches; I got the impression she was under pressure to get round in a given amount of time irrespective of who heard what she said (or didn't). I kept up so heard it all and the content was superficial; at no stage did she ask if anyobdy had any questions
