Finally, end the tour with a stop at Jameos del Agua, a natural cave with a lake.
Montañas del Fuego/Timanfaya National Park
The Fire Mountains in Timanfaya National Park are a part of a vast area affected by the volcanic eruptions between 1730 and 1736. These long-lasting eruptions, among the most important and spectacular in the history of Earth’s volcanism, radically transformed the nature of the island. Experience amazing experiments with the existing geothermal energy and enjoy the breathtaking tour through the national park. Learn more about the history of this natural wonder and hear about the authentic records of a priest from Yaiza, which documented the volcanic eruptions in the 18th century, convey an impression of how people’s lives were determined by the force of nature.
Cueva de los Verdes
The visit to the cave “Cueva de los Verdes” is a true journey into the heart of the earth and promises a spectacular and unique experience. The lava tube, formed by the volcano La Corona, is one of the longest and most interesting in the world. The massive lava flows, which at the time flowed towards the sea, cooled rapidly at the surface while the magma below flowed further. When the eruptions ceased, the remains flowed out, leaving tunnels and cavities at different levels, which together reach a height of 40 meters and go far into the sea.
Jameos del Agua
See the two caves that are part of one of the longest lava tubes on earth. The artist Cesar Manrique creatively and tastefully designed this section of the tunnel to create a harmony between art and nature. Here, you will find a restaurant, a concert hall, and a small lake with a direct connection to the sea. The lake is also home to small white blind crabs, which can be seen with the naked eye and are usually found only in waters more than 2,000 meters below the sea.
