What's included

Access to El Soplao cave
Guided tour in Spanish
  • Enter El Soplao, a unique cave in the heart of Cantabria, northern Spain
  • Discover minerals and structures that seem to come from another world
  • Walk through the different galleries that house an exceptional heritage of mining archaeology

Discovered by Cantabrian miners in 1908, the El Soplao cave offers one of the most impressive speleological sights in Europe. A wonder of geology, you’ll have the chance to see eccentrics, stalactites, stalagmites, lava flows, columns, pearls of the caverns, and dog-tooth crystals.

Named after the blowing air that is felt when a tunnel with less oxygen perforates another, El Soplao is an essential visit for anyone in the region. This subterranean theatre is a spectacle of sensations, with a play of shadow and light, and an abundance of color that will leave you fascinated by the potential of nature.

  • Swap your smartphone ticket for a paper ticket at the entrance
  • Please arrive at the entrance 30 minutes before the selected time (the road to El Soplao has many curves, so plan your journey to arrive on time). Failure to show up on time and outside the established time periods will result in the loss of entry rights
  • Currently, the road leading up to the facilities, exit 258 (Lamadrid, Roiz, Caviedes) from the A-8 motorway will be closed. The official exit is from the A-8 Santander-Oviedo motorway, exit 269 (Los Tánagos-Pesués-Puente Nansa).
