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.

The cable car’s upper station, at 3,555 meters, is the point of departure for 3 interesting trails for hiking enthusiasts.

I thought the whole tour was great, we saw the most important attractions, we were able to take the cable car up to the volcano and spend an hour there, taking photos, recording videos and enjoying the view. The tour guide was just amazing, she explained everything to us very well and in detail. She taught us about volcanoes and active volcanoes, which I found very interesting. Everything was very professionally organized.
