Full description

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.

When I selected a pickup location I couldn't pick the exact hotel I was at, then when I received the email the location was different - would have been nice to select my exact hotel and for them to tell me the closest place as the map was a pain on mobile. The coach was nice and air conditioned, the guide was really knowledgeable and I learned a lot. Once we got to the cable car location we were given tickets and fielded to the queue, so didn't have to think about that which was nice. There was no guide at the top, we just did our own thing - took route 12, views were amazing. On the way back we got a bit more history. Saw Ring of Power being filmed.

Great experience. Coach driver was very good, as was the narrator. Learned a lot about this volcanic region. Don't ignore the advice to dress up warmly with stout shoes - it is a FREEZING cold wind at the top of the cable car. Also, I found it quite difficult to breathe - presumably because the air was thinner at that height. Thoroughly enjoyable trip.

Highly recommended experience if you visit Tenerife. You travel with the peace of mind and security of avoiding queues when you get to the top, since as soon as you arrive they take you on the funicular and they also make two stops, one on the way up to have a coffee and another on the way down to have a panoramic view of Teide. The collection and return to the delivery point was done on time and the guide, Davinia, will explain the route to you on the way.
