Cueva de los Verdes Lanzarote

This tour is the perfect complement if you have already taken a trip to Timanfaya National Park.

The first stop of the tour will be at the Nieves Viewpoint, the highest point in Lanzarote. From the viewpoint, admire Famara Beach and the Chinijo archipelago, formed by the islets of La Graciosa, Roque del Este, Roque del Oeste, and Alegranza.

During our journey to the two main gems of the tour, observe the Corona Volcano, whose eruption over 4000 years ago led to the volcanic tubes that formed Jameos del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes.

In our visit to Cueva de los Verdes, we will explore the most visible area of ​​this great volcanic tube, which is more than 8 km long. We will cross approximately 1 km of galleries up to 50 meters high, that are interconnected and superimposed.

Cueva de los Verdes - Green Cave

We will not leave the Green Caves without revealing its great secret, a secret hidden in this image representing the cave. Like all great secrets, you will not be able to reveal it either.

Cueva de los Verdes

At Jameos del Agua, very close to Cueva de los Verdes, you will discover an extraordinary place, Lanzarote’s second great tourist attraction.

Nature and art merge in this place thanks to the creativity of the brilliant Lanzarote artist César Manrique, who transformed this natural space, located near the coast and below sea level, into a unique spot.

Jameos del Agua

The water of the interior lake formed in Jameo Grande comes from the sea, filtering until reaching the cave. Moreover, if you get close to the water, you will see some small albino and blind crabs, endemic to the cave, popularly known as “jameitos”.


The artificial pool is located outside, in an area covered with lava and volcanic stones, amidst large volcanic rock walls.

At Jameos del Agua, thanks to the magnificent acoustics found inside the volcanic tube, you will also find a natural auditorium with a capacity for more than 500 people.

We also recommend taking precautions against dizziness since the road is very curvy and some people, by not being used to it, can get dizzy on the road.

How much will it be between being picked up and when the tour starts?
Faced with the option of creating a single meeting point for our convenience or of defining several collection points so you can be picked up at your accommodation or close to it, we have chosen to offer the second option for your convenience. The service is slower, but it will be much more comfortable.

It should be considered that the areas further away from the starting point of the tour are normally the first pick-up areas and the last ones to be dropped off.

Can the described route vary?
On special occasions the routes may vary. Due to road closures and other types of force majeure situations, the itinerary may be modified. In these cases, we’ll try to inform you as far in advance as possible.

We will make a long stop to eat. Throughout the excursion, the guide will inform you about the restaurant and mealtimes, as well as the different menus that you can reserve.
