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.

Scenery is unbelievable, 200km2 of vulcano natural Park, like being on the moon. The 3 hours walk was great to discover this, seeing the different kinds of lava, colors, landscapes, lichens. Really a must in my opinion as nothing comparable elsewhere. The guide Alejandro (?) was great, knowledgable, kind and easy going. Highly recommend.

Nos ha encantado,el trato,la amabilidad,la guía excelente,cariñosa,super atenta,y el chófer nos llevó con mucha seguridad, la zona donde nos llevaron increíbles, y la comida inmejorable, super controlado para que tuviéramos tiempo de almorzar con tranquilidad. Y muchos besos a la guía de los españoles Soledad y Francisco.

It was a very nice experience. 3h walk in the lava paths, and trails around the volcanoes. Such an incredible landscape. It feels like Mars. Alejandro our guide was very clear, he taught us a lot about the environment of the island. He came to pick us up at the hotel and drop us off.

Well organised, Guide was very knowledgeable. The experiments at the Volcano were fun and well as informative. A great way to learn more about volcanoes and the island of Lanzarote.

A hike in the heart of the natural park with good explanations on the formation of the landscape.
