We started our activity on a Friday morning in March. It was a beautiful sunny morning, however we did not know until last moment if the weather would permit ascending the peak. In the end we did it and it was great. After driving on mount Teide for approximatively 1 hour through pine trees and black lava, we finally arrived at the cable car at 2200 m altitude. There we waited our turn and climbed the remaining distance until the hiking spot by cable car. It should be noted that enhanced sanitary measures are in place at the cable car: only limited number of people can be in the cable car and after each group the cable car worker cleans / désinfects all the windows. Steffi is a great guide providing explanations about the geology, flora and fauna of the mountain. She is a nature and hike lover and she shares that with the people around. The hike itself is moderately difficult, it can be intense if you go fast but if you take it slow is quite easy and short.
We loved this so much! Neil, our guide, was very knowledgeable and passionate about Tenerife and Teide. He drove very well and was sure to tell us as much info as possible. Lots of stops to view and take photos. The jeep was very fun to be in with the roof off in the sun. Lots of chances to walk around on your own or in a group. Lovely cafe and restaurant (at your own expense). Teide and the national Park are amazing and definitely the thing to do whilst in Tenerife. Unfortunately just as we arrived at the restaurant, our jeep broke down so we had to jump in with another group for the final part but definitely didn't ruin our day. Would definitely recommend!!
Really fun night, the highlight of our trip. Craig was very entertaining and charming, Kieran was extraordinarily knowledgeable. Make sure you dress very warm, we wore shorts and were very cold by about 8pm. The meal is the first part so don't eat a big lunch! So, so fun and we would definitely do again if we were in Tenerife at another point in the calendar to get a different perspective. 5/5
This was such a special tour especially since I went solo! Even with a few other guests, they maintained covid rules and regulations. Teide is absolutely gorgeous in the evening and at sunset! You get to see all of this from such an insane height! It can get pretty cold so make sure to wrap up but be ready for the most beautiful starry skies!
Very well organised experience. Steffi is very friendly and with high knowledge about Teide and the island. We definitely are very happy that we did this tour and we highly recommend it!
