Obviously we did not travel that far, but it certainly felt at times like that, although we were apparently never much more than 5m underground.
We started out with a very informative 15 - 20 minute briefing about types of lava (Karla our guide gave an interesting description - I am not going to divulge it here though) and lava caves in general and specifics about the tubes in Tenerife.
After a short drive followed by a walk to the tubes, we entered the underground system to explore, see and experience, what we learned above ground. There is just nothing compared to feeling and seeing this first hand. We stopped at important points of interest and were given sufficient opportunities for photographs.
The team is very keen to ensure that the tourists get a good insight into the volcanic history of Tenerife and the lava tube system, but they do keep visits to small groups to limit the environmental impact.
Do follow the website’s advice and come prepared, eg warm clothing and proper footwear, you will need it.
Thank you Karla for giving us such a knowledge tour.
