The experience of visiting one of the largest lava tube in the world!! The Cueva del Viento-Sobrado underground complex is the largest lava tube in the European Union. It was created by lava flows from Pico Viejo, next to Mt. Teide.
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.
