We hired a car and beat the crush. The drive up and back was pleasant enough as the roads were pretty quiet. We were able to park very close to the cable cars and were amongst the first up. You need good solid shoes if you want to walk along the path as its a bit rough in places. Remember... More

El Teide is an absolute must see in Tenerife. If you are any way confident behind the wheel then rent a car, it's less than 40 euro per day and the road up is wide, well paved and easy to navigate, leaving you free to stop where and when you want for photos and not be rushed. And you will... More

When you get near the top, the views are simply breathtaking. Seeing the bright blue sky above the volcano, and the views on the way up and way down are spellbinding. When me and my parents went to Mount Teide, we drove up. It took approximately one hour to hour and a half to get up and about the same... More

A really must if visiting Tenerife,the lunar landscape is mind blowing and the changes driving up threw the clouds are breathtaking.A cable car can take you further up the Mountain but does not take you to the very peak a government permit is needed for this.Some amazing views an scenery so do not forget your camera

What a fantastic sight - we visited on a gloomy day with clouds in the sky. The views were spectacular; the drive through the national park are fantastic - don't miss this. Fantastic

We made a huge mistake booking a ½ day tour to mount Teide. If you book this tour you will spend about 1 ½ hours at the attraction and 6 hours on a bus picking up and dropping off all over the island. We were picked up ½ hour late and dropped off 2 ½ hours late thus missing a... More

What a fantastic sight - we visited on a brilliant day with not a cloud in the sky. The views were spectacular; the drive through the national park are fantastic - don't miss this. The lava fields are brilliant; thr Luna landscape area is breathtaking. Fantastic day out.

A must see place, stunning scenery, incredible drive up, we will be back as it was just amazing. We had a nice coffee near the cable car and went shopping there too, not too overpriced.

We booked this as a half day trip, but we thought in the end was a full day. Would have been better knowing before hand how long it would be. Worth a visit.

You must visit this place! The lava fields are probably something you have never seen before... And amazing Teide, with posibility of cable ride. What you are waiting for? Can be a bit cold in there, keep this in mind.
