A must go place in tenerife. To make the most, one needs to hire a car . Bus tours are available but not recommended as you can't stop at your own will . The place has stunning views and one needs to enjoy each and every scene on the way.

The drive to the park is full of twists and turns but definitely worth it. Bus tour is not recommended as you loose your independence.

It is a must go place in tenerife. There are bus tours available but prefer to hire a car and go on your own . It will give you more independence and you can stop whenever you want.

The high peak has snow on the north slope. The drive is a narrow two lane highway with steep drops protected by guardrails. Tour busses take up 60% of the road. The twisting road climbs from the sea with its farms and villages, through all the climate zones to the desolate lava with its vegetation varying from sparse to none.... More

This is a very interesting part of Tenerife. We particularly liked the visitor centre, which has good display panels. There is also an impressive video - ask at reception when the next showing (in your chosen language) is due to start. The park would interest serious walkers - the signed routes we saw are quite long. Health tips: sun block... More

It is the highest place in Tenerife with perfect view over a pristine landscape. For a few Euros the cable car will take you to the top of the mountain for an even better view. Please take care to have warm clothes with you, the temperatures on the top are low. If you have prespiratory issues, keep away from the... More

My partner and I visited Teide National Park during October a few years ago and it was brilliant! We drove up to get the cable car which is not for the faint hearted (especially if you're not used to driving on the right hand side of the road!) but it was worth it! We drove by some fascinating landscapes and... More

I was prepared to be disappointed many National Parks I think are not often over praised but in this case it is as good as the recomendations I had read. We drove through the park to the cable car and took the trip up to the station but did not climb to the top. At the station we were above... More

Looks like the American southwest, we thought. This was a highlight of our trip to Tenerife. We came from Garachico and drove on the TF-38 and TF-21 to get to El Teide, which means we drove through a very large stretch of the park. Impressive canyons, mountains, rock formations.

Been there with the car. The ride to the top was relaxing, beautiful and enjoy it. Very happy we decided to go there. Couldn't stop taking pictures. is nice to take a blanket with you and just stay there surrounded my the magnificent rocks. Great Views. Also there is a place where you can eat and drink which is good.... More
