Cueva del Viento

Cueva del Viento or translated, The Cave of the Wind is the largest lava tube in Europe.

The tube was created by lava flowing from the Pico Viejo which is just along side the more well known Mount Teide which itself is the highest point in the whole of Spain.

A visit to Cueva del Viento gives you an insight into the role of lava flows in a volcanic eruption, and offers you the chance to see the whimsical forms sculpted by the lava in the bowels of the earth. Is a fine example of the complexity of geology. There are three different passage levels in the more than 17 kilometres of tubes, together with beautiful geo-morphological phenomenon like chasms, terraces and other lava formations.

Directions and reservation information can be found on the Cueva del Viento website. It is advisable to reserve at least one day before your visit.
