Owner description: 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

Another must-do on the island - we bought tickets for here, together with Jameos Del Aqua and Jardin de Cactus.
Breathtaking natural lava caves, never seen anything like it. Fantastic guided experience.

Very good value and very interesting. It is a fully guided walk through a portion of a 6km lava tube with interesting rock formations. There are some steep stairways and low narrow passageways so would not be suitable for everyone but if you can manage it it is so worth a visit.
