There aren’t many places that gather as many areas of interest for the cultural and natural heritage of Lanzarote as Cueva de los Verdes, a unique mythological-looking cave, full of legends and extraordinary landscape and beauty. It came about after the eruption of the Volcán de la Corona, and it’s one of the most impressive hidden wonders in the depths of Lanzarote. It was used as a hideout by the locals who needed shelter to protect themselves from invasions and attacks of pirates coming from the north of Africa during the 16th and 17th Centuries. In the 19th Century, it became a must for travellers, experts and European scientists due to the uniqueness of this volcanic territory, named after a family that kept their cattle in the area, the story goes

Amazing visit to the heart of volcano tunnels. Visit start im groupes every 30 mim. You will be guided in the history and caves of the volcano. Visiting this part of the island is worthy.

This is a guided tour underground which lasts less than an hour. It is not suitable for wheelchairs/buggies etc... and you need to be able to bend down very low while walking as some of the ceilings are very low and jagged. It is surprisingly...More

It's a great contrast to Jameos del Agua just down the road - it's great to see them both in quick succession. Excellent multi-lingual guide (she was actually Belgian!). The groups are bigger than ideal but I guess that can't be helped. And the surprise...More

All our family enjoyed this trip. This place surprised us but we're not telling with what exactly. It's a surprise. It's amazing to go through place which is 3000 years old. We highly recommend it as part of travelling through the North of Lanzarote island.

So last minute trip b4 we left island but a MUST if u visit. Guided tour which lasts about 55 minutes. NOT suitable for disabled due to the nature of the terrain. The secret is a must however 🙃

Nice and interesting tour, we really enjoyed the guided tour. By the way, some track were rather narrow so if you suffer from claustrophobia this tour may not be really ideal for you.

Within 15-20 minutes you've seen everything in this lava cave. Which is really nice to see, so I can recommend to go there, but only if you plan other sight seeing in that area. Reason for only three stars: I expected a much longer cave,...More

This was our 4th visit to Lanzarote and had never done the caves. They are so interesting and we had a great guide. We went quite early in the morning so it was fairly quiet. Would definitely recommend

Great place to visit. Go later in the day to avoid the crowds and queues. However you will have to wait until the group size is quite large! Guide very good. Translated into English also. Tour approx 40 mins long and a distance of 1km....More
