Cueva de los Verdes, Lanzarote

#2 of 7 in Nature in Lanzarote
Cave Nature / Park
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. Make Cueva de los Verdes a part of your Lanzarote vacation plans using our Lanzarote tourist route planner.

  • The perfect place to visit if like me you cycled there on a hot day... lovely and cool! But even if you 'just' want to see and hear about a natural wonder it's definitely worth seeing. I wish they had had a live musician of some sort on in the last but one gallery though. It is set out for a performance and throughout the day there must have been hundreds of visitors.... Solo sax perhaps or Spanish guitar maybe?? The surprise at the end is beautiful and in my opinion worth the entrance fee alone 😀
  • Amazing caves and great tour. The caves are amazing and they have lit them well. The tour was great as well and it was spoken in both Spanish and English. I would recommend seeing these and if you going to take phones with an SLR, bring a tripod!
  • Very interesting experience. It is totally worth it. You can buy the tickets at the entrance and buy a multipass to visit other tourists attractions of the island. The only thing I could complain is that the guide did not speed up the visitors so we were always waiting for people. The visit is very nice, info is given in English and Spanish.
  • Visited yesterday and couldn't continue with the visit as I suffer from claustrophobia! Nowhere does it warn you that the initial decent downwards with restricted roof height and confined space, along with a large group if people,50 in total. Too much for me!
  • Absolutely worth visiting, nothing to do with the heavy environmental interventions of Cesar Manrique. You are guided through a large lava tunnel on easy paths designed by Jesus Soto. Nice stable temperature. Good for kids. Our guide, Carlos was amazingly funny and well prepared.
