Not a bad drive up to the reception centre with the passenger enjoying some stunning views. We expected to have a relaxing coffee on arrival but both car parks were full (in February). Undaunted, we carried on to the cable car centre where there was a very long queue for the two cars. We decided to do our own thing... More

Whether hiking through the dense pine tree forests on well marked tracks at heights up to 1600 meters or alternatively hiking in desert-like landscapes above 2000 meters with colorful rocks and stones at the foot of the volcano Teide it is an impressive experience of nature. All hiking tour starting points can be reached easily by car, good hiking boots... More

We took a coach trip here and were so glad that we did. At (aslmost) the top of the volcano, it was near 0 degrees and chilly, the views were fantastic! We were prepared for the cold so it was not an issue. Cable car ride up to the top was lovely and gave us views on the way. Would... More

We joined an excursion to Teide National Park, starting from Playa de las Americas. It took us about an hour to gradually rise on a winding road among almond trees before we reached the ridge of the hill at an altitude of somewhat 2000 meters. We then realized that this was the rim of the crater, revealing a field of... More

The trip on the cable car was probably the best part of this attraction, the drive up was picturesque and the views from the viewing points were stunning but when you got off the cable car at the top, I have to say for me it was very disappointing.

Teide National Park is worth a visit, even if you have seen the volcanic scapes of the other islands. Each offer a different experience and you will have lots of photo opportunities. Where the road ends, you can only get to the very top of the volcano by the cable car. I have to say that at 27 euro each... More

We are amazed at how well the Tenerife National Parks commission(s) has/ve done with their national parks. This is all well marked, well written up on Internet and all works very well for the tourist. We are amazed at how many hiking (good and long and varying degrees of difficulty and length). There is a lot for everyone to do.

The views are outstanding! Words can't describe them. You have to go and see! We booked an all day tour in a minibus - great value for money.
