Everything was great. It was a smooth drive up to the cable car, which was great for the kids because no one felt sick on the way. Everything we saw on the way was carefully explained and that made rhe trip more interesting. The climbing was done on a rhythm that allowed everybody to rich the pick, so overall , a GREAT experience. Thank you

Steffi was an amazing guide. Always making sure we were having fun and most important of all that we were feeling okay acclimating to the altitude. She was very knowledgable about El Teide and the surrounding areas. When we got the top we had time to rest, take pictures and enjoy the amazing views. Highly recommend this trip. Thanks Steffi!!

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.
