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.

The experience was exceptional. The slingshot car was providing quite high adrenaline sport drive feeling. The views of the surrounding volcanic landscape were mesmerizing, the beach and the green lake were nice highlights too. The guide Jonas was very helpful, fun and positive. The whole trip was well organized, even the manager came to talk to us when they found out we are from the same country :) We will definitely do it again on our next trip. Thank you Jonas and Moni :)
