Full description

After picking you up in the selected location, you will 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, you’ll help to 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.

Our guide Christian did a great tour with us in three languages and we had a great time. Although it was a bit disappointing at first that the cable car was not running because of the wind, there was a spontaneous reaction when the news came around noon that the cable car was running. The barrachito at the first stop was also very tasty. Gladly again... Michael and Barbara

Very nice guide, giving lots of details about the history of the island and its geological creation. Approximate but sufficient English. Time a bit short at the top of the cable extra hour would be appreciated. The sudden rise in sea level to 3300 meters in a few hours has side effects (migraines at the top and fatigue the rest of the day). Not to be missed, however, the panorama is exceptional

It is wirth your time, and money! I can only recommend :). Karsten our guide was super competent and friendly. Only one thing: if You tend to get sick on bus rides, please prepre yourself. It was neither the fault by the driver, nor by the roads nor the bus. Everyting was excellent but it to go from sea level to 3500 meters in 2,5 hours can take a toll. Thankfuly the tour stops halfway to take some photos. :)
