Mount Teide: Tour with Cable Car Ticket

1. Mount Teide: Tour with Cable Car Ticket

After picking you up in the selected location, you will visit the largest national park in the Canary Islands and experience a volcanic landscape of unrivalled beauty with your Mount Teide cable car ticket. Forget the car and contribute to a sustainable Teide. By choosing group transport, you’ll help to beat overcrowding in the vehicle parking zones inside the national park which, as a conservation measure, are small and unsuitable for expansion. From the base station, board the cable car for the 8-minute ride up to the highest peak in Spain. The cable car’s upper station, at 3,555 meters, is the point of departure for 3 interesting trails for hiking enthusiasts. There are paths to Pico Viejo Lookout and La Fortaleza Lookout, where you’ll have spectacular views of the north and south of the island, respectively. The Telesforo Bravo path leads to the highest point of the volcano, at an altitude of 3,718 meters. To visit the peak you must apply for a permit in advance.

5h trip to see cetaceans and Los gigantes. The catamaran is not huge, so the trip is more enjoyable. The afternoon we went there were only about thirty passengers. Including lunch. It is advisable to bring a sweatshirt or a kway in January, the wind can be annoying.

Great catamaran ride in which we managed to see dolphins and pilot whales during the journey. We were also able to take a bath in a bay and it fit the estimated time of 3 hours.

Good price-value ratio. We’ve seen dolphins, whales as close as it is possible. The drink and food was OK. We had a nice company, but the staff could’ve been friendlier.

Very nice. Many dolphins spotted. Friendly and helpful crew. The only flaw, crowded catamaran

Nice boat, friendly crew and excellent facilities. The food on board was very tasty!
