 6.  Caving

Fancy taking a stroll through a lava cave formed more than 27,000 years ago? Tenerife is home to ‘Cueva del Viento’, the largest volcanic tunnel in Europe. It was created by a huge lava tube that cooled quickly on the outside whilst the molten lava continued to flow inside. This created a 17 km (11 mile) tunnel beneath the earth.

Cueva Del Viento Cave Tenerife

Cueva del Viento-Sobrado is located in the town of Icod de los Vinos, in north-east Tenerife. It isbelieved to be the fifth largest volcanic tunnel in the world, whilst four bigger tunnels can be found in Hawaii. Its various underground passages cover more than 17 kilometres (11 miles).

The tour begins at the visitor centre by vehicle, which drops off close to the tunnel entrance. The tour then continues on foot through picturesque farmland, pine forests and even an old royal road. The route includes bilingual information panels, which together with commentary from your guide, will provide all the information you need to know about the cave and the resident wildlife inside.

This tour is of medium difficulty and takes approximately two hours from start to finish. The tour spends approximately 45 minutes inside the cave itself.
