We paid our money and waited about fifteen minutes for the previous tour to finish. The tour guide then came to collect fifty of us. He took us down some steps into the caves. The guide spoke in Spanish and then English. His accent was very strong so we had to listen carefully. It was all interesting enough. The highlight perhaps was the concert area down there. It's the last place you'd expect to find one.

There is a lot of walking involved but it's very organised and the tour guide was great. He must do that tour many times a day but his manner was enthusiastic.

We were there about an hour all in.

I went with my Grandson. It’s quite a drive from playa Blanca but was worth it. The colours and levels and twists and turn was great for taking pictures.

Sadly the number of people in each tour guides Group is around 50 people and it was busy so we had to hurry through and it would have been nice to stop and take more pictures.

The walk would not be suitable for people who find it difficult to climb steps Nd bend low.

Otherwise it’s ok for all.

Dear jdiepend,

Thank you for spending part of your time writing to tell us about your experience at La Cueva de los Verdes.

Formed as a result of the eruptive activity of the Corona Volcano, it is one of the most amazing wonders that hide the bowels of Lanzarote. Used as a hiding place for the population against the attacks and invasions of pirates from North Africa during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, in the nineteenth century it became a must for travelers, scholars and European scientists fascinated by this unique volcanic formation that, Paradoxically, he owes his name to the family name of a family that kept his cattle in the surroundings, as they say.

In the 60s of the last century, the Cabildo de Lanzarote turned to the majorero artist Jesús Soto, who would eventually become a close collaborator of Manrique, for the adaptation of this natural sanctuary of volcanic origin that has become the focus of attraction for thousands of visitors who yearn to discover their secret. Soto ordered the visit and displayed all his knowledge of the treatment of light and shadow to extract the luminosity of the stone and enhance the capricious forms that lava was leaving behind in its devastating path.

The color range of ocher, gray, black and reddish reign in this paradise of darkness and blend in by the effect of light to draw grotesque landscapes and spectacular rock structures that surprise visitors. Entering the Cave of the Greens is, without a doubt, making an initiatory journey to the center of the earth.

We regret not having met your expectations, we hope you enjoy the rest of the island.
a cordial greeting

Brilliant tour of the cave, made more exciting by our excellent guide.

For us, this was the highlight of the islands attractions. Interesting rock formations and lava flow, an acoustic auditorium in the middle of the cave, greenery and water features. A must see for anyone coming to Lanzarote.

The tour lasts around 40 mins and it covers around 1km of the cave system which has been made accessible to tourists (there are over 7km in total!). Worthwhile adding this one to your group ticket discount.

This is one of the best caves I have seen. A superb guided tour takes you into the depths of the mountain. Although only a part is open this is 45mins of amazement. wonderfully lit it is very atmospheric. A lot of steps up and down and a very low roof in parts. A hat would be useful! ( In the UK you would probably be kitted out with a hard hat) Deep down you can see a solidified lava stream. In the middle is the most stunning phenomena which has to be seen to believe. You have to be their to see it as banned from telling. Well worth the entry fee of €9.5
