Discover the highest point in Spain on this 1-day hiking tour to Mount Teide. Located in the middle of Tenerife, the ascent to the top of Mount Teide – with the help of the cable car – offers fantastic views over the neighboring islands.
What to Expect
Discover the national park surrounding the tallest mountain in Spain and enjoy a trip to the summit of Mount Teide.
Experience a tour with diverse landscapes. The 3718 meters of altitude, ascending upwards in a straight line just under 14 kilometers, offers various vegetation zones. From the barren, desert-like vegetation near the coast, it merges into a zone with less demanding dry vegetation which is separated by the pine forest. Here you can admire the regularly changing cloud formations caused by the trade winds. In the high alpine zone around Mount Teide you will find another different zone with so-called Teide vegetation.
The tour takes you through the national park to the famous rock formation “Los Roques”. You can ride the cable car to get closer to the top of the mountain before walking the remaining 170 meters up. You will be rewarded with the unique summit feeling and the fantastic panoramic view over the island and the neighboring islands.
