Nice place for hiking to mountain top with volcano. Possibility to use cable car for additional price. The guided bus trips arranged to this place from other Tenerife places regularly.

It was one of the most spectacular views I ever had. The landscape is of an overwhelming beauty, showing the earth churned by a volcanic eruption that happened in the Middle Ages. Everything is fantastic here. A little odd was that in the waiting room to climbing to Teide by cable car, there was not access to the restaurant, and... More

The journey through the Teide National Park takes you through a spectacular landscape of lava fields, volcanos and rock formations. There are numerous parking areas where you can pull off the road to read explanatory boards about the surrounding area, and take photos.When you reach the lower station of the cable car there are parking spaces,but when we arrived at...

Not much to see on Tenerife, but this volcano is a must see. Bit of a trek by car to get to it, but then easy parking and a cable car up to just below the top. Then the views are fantastic...take your camera. Do remember that the summit is about 3,700m and you can get altitude sickness at anything... More

I love the Teide National Park as I always see something different no matter how many times I visit whether in the sunshine or after an occasional storm. The colours are magnificant with the pines and backdrop. Every time I have visited, the cable car has not been running due to weather conditions but there will always be another time... More

Really good trip up Mount Teide - worth doing. Lots of good souvenirs and it's worth paying 26 euro for cable car trip

Anyone who comes to Tenerife has to go up Teide, have been up several times now and never loses its appeal. It has spectacular views then take your breath away. Its worth taking the cable car up to the summit. We always drive up when we go so we can explore at our leisure. Definitely recommend this for a cracking... More

Even though we were there early, at 9: 30 am, the queues for the cable car are long. Buy ticket until you get the cable car goes, wait an hour. When we came out around 12: 00 at least three times as long.You have to be lucky with the weather. It is not always a clear picture. Take warm clothes,... More
