Cave hike – Jameo de la Gente – Puerta Falsa

Note: We have to apply for a permit from the Cabildo in advance for this tour. Therefore, we can only offer this tour with a corresponding lead time (4 weeks). So please book in time.

We dive into a part of the lava tunnels of “Monte Corona” in the north of the island, one of the longest lava tunnel systems on earth, which is about 13,000 – 15,000 years old.

Even those who can claim to have already learned, hiked and seen a lot about the fascinating world of the volcanoes in Lanzarote will surely experience something completely new and absolutely spectacular here.

We enter the lava tunnel of volcano Monte Corona. The second longest lava tunnel system of the earth and approximately 13.000 – 15.000 years old. We walk and/or climb, partly through a section of this tunnel of a length of approximately 2 km, which in other parts also accommodates the Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua.

In the lava tunnel at Monte Corona – another world.

This world without (natural) light, in the bosom of lava will offer you an unforgettable experience “Lanzarote-Feeling” at it’s best.
