Excursions to the caves

Visit the main caves in Lanzarote

Going on the different excursions to the caves of Lanzarote means discovering some of the most incredible places on this island, which of course is incredible as a whole. We are speaking of visiting the Jameos del Agua or taking a trip to the Cueva de los Verdes, which are included among the many tourist routes through Lanzarote.

Both places are located to the north of the island, and both are very close together and close to the old Corona volcano. In reality, it was an eruption from this volcano that gave birth to these caves. This fact is very important and is something that the guides of these natural monuments, who accompany the groups, always make very clear, so that the visitor knows at all times that they are entering a volcanic tube. But don’t worry, it is not dangerous!

The guided tour to the Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de Verdes offers that experience of entering a tube that originated from an explosion of gas from within the volcano’s lava. These magnificent natural spaces were thus created, which even came to be situated below sea level, so the waters of the Atlantic Ocean are filtered here.

In short, with these caves in Lanzarote we offer nothing more than a visit to two of the most unique natural marvels. But there’s still more. The great advantage to coming to these places as part of our Lanzarote excursions is that the guides provide abundant information so that you can enjoy them even more. This is something greatly appreciated in such remote areas as these.

This way we can get to know the Cueva de los Verdes, one of the largest volcanic tubes on the planet, so rugged in appearance and sometimes even claustrophobic. It came to be an ideal shelter for the people of Lanzarote. In its more than 6 kilometres of depth, they sought refuge here when under siege or under attack by pirates.

And combining the visit to the Cueva de los Verdes with the entrance to the Jameos del Agua means a more complete experience, since both places have the same origin but completely different appearances. Why? Because César Manrique intervened in the Jameos del Agua, where he designed an indoor area with pools and an auditorium.

In short, if someone were capable of increasing the beauty of this natural cavity, where there is even a lake inhabited by the iconic jameitos (tiny albino crabs that never see the light of the sun), that would have to be the most illustrious Lanzarote. An artist of international prestige who left some of his most incredible creations on this land, like the Jameos del Agua.

In fact, much of the guided routes through Lanzarote show Manrique’s various works, and in this sense we would also include his construction of the Lagomar House in the cave category. It’s a building that in large part was an excavation into the belly of the earth, such that the house-cave is completely integrated into the landscape, but at the same time it has undeniable architectural value. During a trip to the island, Hollywood actor Omar Sharif saw it, fell in love with the house and bought it. Even though it did not spend much time in his ownership, this house, available on many of our itineraries through Lanzarote, is also known as the House of Omar Sharif.

In short, the guided tours of Lanzarote are always dominated by two factors. On the one hand is the island’s volcanic origin, and on the other, the works of César Manrique. Both elements are joined together on the visits to the caves of Lanzarote.

La mejor excursión que he hecho hasta ahora con diferencia. No se si tendrán algún tour para ir a La Graciosa que será mi próximo plan. Gracias chicos ha salido todo a la perfección.

Jameos is a true joy. I would have spent the entire day inside there, exploring and taking photos. I will recommend it to my daughter for the coming year.

He is a genius. On the peninsula he is not as well-known, at least not to me. I found out that Lanzarote owes everything to him.

Perfect. The views are lovely, as are the works of this artist. I highly recommend it.

We had a unique day away from the beaches. Lanzarote is amazing; it has historical works of art, a rich culture, and delicious cuisine. It’s a treat.

Unbeatable. The green lake is out of this world, unbelievable that I was there. Same with Jameos del Agua and the other areas we visited. I will never forget it!

A short but unforgettable holiday. It’s the first time that I’ve visited Lanzarote and I will definitely return. I was there for just a few days but it was very nice to visit the important places and to get a general overview of Lanzarote.

Low Cost tours are great. I have never been to a more amazing island.

Keep in mind that when you arrive at Jameos, you have to choose or enter there or at the Verdes cave, one or the other. I chose Jameos because I already knew what I would see more or less but it’s a shame to not be able to visit the cave and learn more about it.

It’s amazing, the entire island is surrounded by white houses and palm trees on all sides. I enjoyed seeing the scenery both on foot and by bus. There is never a moment when you lose view of the sea.

Very beautiful. I will recommend it to my friends back home. Great company.

Apparently the islanders owe a lot to the great César Manrique. He is quite an admired figure, and rightly so given everything that he has done for Lanzarote. Very worthwhile.

Good price and the quality of the excursion is better than expected.

The entire itinerary seemed very interesting to me, but especially the plantations and crops of cactus on the island where some kind of sticky substance is extracted and turned into dye. It was extraordinary.

So beautiful, Jameos is amazing in the way it coexists with nature and the works that seem more like a natural creation of the earth and its volcanos than of a man. I should say that I fancied a dip in that pool.

Essential. The National Park is spectacular and the Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes are marvels.

Wonderful. The three places impressed me, I don’t know which one I liked most because they were all spectacular.

Impressive. We loved the three places.

Essential excursion. If you go to Lanzarote it’s obligatory to do this excursion in order to get to know these three emblematic places on the island.

Good excursion. All of the visits were spectacular but we would have liked to go camel riding in Timanfaya.
