This is a must see. Take a cable to the top too. Do not go during discount times 14-16 pm as it is often cloudy in that period. Trip was so great, so full of impressions, do not miss it. Totally makes your day. And it is like a different planet. Highly recommend it.

My partner drove the roads to mount tiede we were advised by the hotel not to travel around the Tiede area after 5pm and you can certainly see why . The roads are extremely winding . As you drive up the mountain roads the scenery is stunningly beautiful with view points to admire the breathtaking views all around . As... More

A Brilliant day out with incredible views and land scape. The cable car journey was incredible, but very busy although everyone was very friendly. One of our children was forced to pay full price as she didn't have her passport with her to prove her age so beware! Top tip,There were horrendous queues for people who had pre booked but... More

Spectecular views of the landscape but be warned if you are going to the top via cable car, try and get your hotel to buy the tickets on your behalf in advance or arrange your transportation and not via a tour,otherwise if you go there, you will be stuck into the queue as we did as our hotel did not...

Landscape has so many suprises and when you are lucky enough to have a brilliant guide, as we did, there is so much to learn. The terrain across the crater is varried, and it is easy to see why so many different types of film / programmes are filmed there. There is next to no wildlife, but that increases the... More

amazing views but a very long wait in line total of 2.5 hours to get on cable cart , remember kids passports under 14years pay child price but they insist on passports to confirm, quite expensive for only an 8 minute cable car ride and 1 hour on mountain

Booked overnight accommodation at the refuge online several days in advance, walked up to refuge, arriving early. Slept over in refuge, got up early and walked up in the dark, with many others. Waited on the summit for sunrise; it was very cold, and the sulphur smell was all-pervading but there were superb views over the island to the sea.... More

Enroute, we stopped at a museum which was part of the National park and told that the cable car was 11km away. From there, it was an 8.5hr return journey by foot or 10min cable car ride. However, the wait time could exceed 2 hrs. On arrival at the cable car queue wasnt moving. If you booked your ticket over... More
