The only organised trip that we went on during our holiday to Tenerife. Was dubious as it was quite expensive, but omg it was so worth it. The bus journey takes you right up to the top but stops at a couple of points. Seeing the sunset at the top of the mountain is absolutely amazing. Don't miss it

Drive through the mountains was fabulous, scenery breathtaking. Stayed at a small restaurant for lunch which gets most of the custom from the coach trips, the meal was very disappointing.

I've been today with my wife and two kids aged 11 & 13. A nice drive from los gigantes. 30°c with air conditioning is a doodle. We had to park in a lay by and walk along the road and up the hill. First tip, drop off family at top to start queuing and walk up on your own. Then,... More

Amazing day. Hired our own car and drove up the mountain - ample viewing points. Arrived at cable car to the summit - lunchtime was quite busy, although we were able to park close by. Cable car was scary but safe and the view from the top was quite breath taking - literally - it is so high you can... More

When you are on the island of Tenerife, you should of course go here. But it's a high mountain, not so much more. I don't like heights, but the views are of course spectacular.

Great to see a volcano and an interesting day out. Didn't like being packed in quite so much on the cable cars but I guess this has to be done to keep visitors flowing through. Took amazing pictures. Wrap up as it's chilly at the plato and very windy of course. Make sure you wear sensible shoes for the walk!... More

When we arrived (mid day) the queue was very long and we had to wait for 1½ hours to get up to the top. Even though we had brought wamt clothes we only brought one extra sweater/jacket which was a mistake. It was 30+ Celcius when we left Playa de las Americas but on the top it was 12 degrees... More

Great day out. The landscape is other worldly, and is often used in movies and music videos. The cable car is expensive but totally worth it ( around 90 euro for a family of 5 ). You need to get special permission to go to the very top , from the gobierno, and would need to be fit to CLIMB... More

I like going up there at night. A taxi from Santa Cruz charges about 30 EUR to take you above the cloud layer (if any) to an altitude of about 2700 meters, near the telescopes. There, you can just look up and observe the amazing sky full of stars we don't ever see in the city. Don't forget to bring... More
