Tenerife: Mount Teide Tour with Cable Car Ticket & Transfer

1. 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. 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.

Tenerife: Pico del Teide Full-Day Ascending Hiking Tour

2. Tenerife: Pico del Teide Full-Day Ascending Hiking Tour

Climb up the highest mountain in Spain – Pico del Teide – on this demanding day tour. You will start from the road through Cañadas towards El Portillo, reaching a height of approximately 2,300 meters. As the route gradually approaches the mountain, you will first reach the back of the Montaña Blanca with the "Huevos del Teide" (the eggs of Teide), huge black rocks. After 1.5 hours, the path through the pumice and lava fields becomes steeper and leads you to the refuge Refugio de Altavista. You will continue on across solidified lava flows to the mountain station of the cable car. You will then hike all the way to the summit of Mount Teide, using your pre-organized special permit. Enjoy the fantastic views of the Canary islands and experience the tranquility of the summit. At the end of the tour you will take the cable car back down to the starting point.

Highly recommended experience. The views are out of this world. Amazing tour Guide Benjamin, very informative and funny. Great singing voice. Excellent company, very personal service. Great price on excursions. Definitely use this company again. Great communication to sort out pick up destination and times.

nice guide, detailed explanations, nice transport conditions and café place for a short break To improve the timing or at least if they are late to announce the tourist via SMS/E-mail. Avoid any stressful situation that is not desired in vacation.
