Tenerife: Mount Teide Tour with Cable Car Ticket & Transfer

1. Tenerife: Mount Teide Tour with Cable Car Ticket & Transfer

Join a day trip from Santa Cruz de Tenerife to Teide National Park, home to Mt. Teide, Spain’s tallest peak at 12,198 feet (3,718 meters). Following pickup from your hotel, head to the park, and explore its lunar landscapes. Take a cable car to the peak and enjoy time at leisure to soak up the views. After getting picked up in the selected location, visit the largest national park in the Canary Islands and experience a volcanic landscape of unrivaled beauty with your Mount Teide cable car ticket. Forget the car and contribute to a sustainable Teide. By choosing group transport, 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. 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.

What people are saying about El Medano

Very well organized. Bus picked us up on time and the trip up to the volcano was very interesting with the guide giving plenty of information on the way. We stopped at a small cafe on route to give everyone the chance to buy refreshments. The trip in the cable car was a good experience, and when up the top of teide the views were outstanding. The air was thin but fresh and the sky was so blue as we were above the clouds. Highly recommend this trip for a good day out.

The experience is worth it, although we were unlucky not to be able to go up the cable car due to bad weather, but they give us the equivalent money for that activity, the guide we had was super nice and friendly, I will repeat activities with them for sure, the application very complete and well explained, 10!

worthwhile. A little more time might be better, but nice views and good explanations. Excursion was trilingual English, Spanish and German. However, if you want to get to the summit, the time on the Teide is too short. Otherwise tight but sufficient.

Fantastic tour, very well organised and informative guide, scenic drive (calm driver unlike tours in other countries on windy roads(, nice cafe stop on the way up (try the barraquito coffee!) and stunning views at the top after the cable car

Well organised visit, giving lots of time at Teide summit to explore and enjoy. The guide Pedro was very considerate, helpful and informative. A great day out.
