Experience

Highlights
  • Hike to the sumit from the cable car's upper station
  • Take in spectacular vistas of the national park and the neighboring islands
  • Enjoy the services of an official guide who will prepare you for the hike
Full description
Take a 3-hour guided hike along one or more of the 30 trails on Mount Teide. The great variety and levels of difficulty make it easy for visitors to choose their ideal route with the recommendations of the guide.

The trails with the most spectacular vistas are on the summit of Mount Teide (3,718 meters) and they can be reached from the La Rambleta starting point (accessible by cable car) followed by trail number 10. 

Without a doubt the most popular trail is the one leading to the volcano's peak, but there are limits on how many people can visit that area of Teide.

You will be provided with an official guide, who will prepare you for the hike and accompany you along the route to provide commentary on the spectacular natural landscapes.

Very good coordination before the hike, setting up timing and location for the early morning pickup. We made a couple of stops on the way to the cable cars, to see the largest pine tree in the islands and to have a coffee. Dario was our guide, and he was very knowledgeable. His English is excellent. Great commentary in the tour bus and also as we made our way up the trail. Only drawback was that the trail to the volcano top was closed due to icy conditions. I highly recommend this tour if you want to see El Teide.

Spectacular experience well worth the effort to get to the top.

Spectacular landscape and climb from the top station to the summit. Our guide was amazing with a wealth of knowledge and great sense of humor. We couldn’t have asked for better weather with a breathtaking view of not only the caldera, and Tenerife italef bit of the neighbouring islands and even El Hierro in the distance. Well worth the effort to get to the top. The walk to the viewing point of Pico Viejo was excellent to. A beautiful crater. Highly recommended

Great experience, our guide Jose was very knowledgeable.

I was the oldest person in this group. Coming from low flat land I had a definite disadvantage with the altitude and steep path. Jose was very patient and encouraging with me. I really appreciated this, especially his escorting me back down the path. The steep steps with no side rails or rocks to hang onto were a little daunting to this Canadian. Thank you for a great experience - Ann
