Wonderful, quirky landscape, a haven of peace and quiet, well worth a visit. A bit like what I would imagine the moon looks like.

Our best experience. Fantastic view from the top of Teide, amazing scenery! Don't leave it for the last day! The cable is not working in high wind, we had to go back next day but it was worth it!

Teide national park 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... More

We did a day tour and stopped in the part for a short time but got so much information on the place. Defo would love to spend more time to see it all and its a stunning place to see.

Going to the top of the Teide (or at least to the foot of the mountain in the moon-like landscape) is a must when visiting Tenerife. Getting there is not so easy but fortunately we were able to join on a bus tour leaving from the touristic region in the southwest of the island to the foot of the mountain... More

when you travel thru the park and see the sites of it, you will feel as if you went back to the beginning of earth, its stunning to be here. you have to go to the top by the cable car it has a fee but worth it. the vie from the bulconny is amazing.

This is a 'must do' trip in Tenerife. We visited in July 2014, hiring a car and had one of the most memorable and enjoyable days. The park is stunning, it is almost emotional driving higher and higher up through the clouds towards Mount Teide. We stopped off at many lay-bys to enjoy the views and take the most beautiful...

When we arrived the cable car was closed due to winds however opened 30 minutes later. Really cold in spite of it being in the high twenties. Worth the wait as views amazing but glad I hired a fleece for €5. Difficult to walk even on the paths at the top so make sure you wear sensible shoes and can... More

Anyone can get here and go on the cable car - but go as part of an organised trip and try to get the permit to go right to the top - it is tough to do , particularly the last steps but the views are so worth it

Teide is an impressive mountain in the middle of Tenerife. It is worth to visit it. I recommend it like this: - Rent a car and go by your own (you can stop wherever you want and take great pictures) - If you are a sporty person, go to the parking at TF21 (~3km further than the cable car), and...
