Must do!

Must do in Tenerife! Long coach journey up to the cable cars and then queuing before ascending to the top but well worth it!

We drove into the national park and were instantly struck with its beauty.. Everywhere you look its simply breathtaking. Even our two young daughters enjoyed the day here! (aged 9 and 6) Put this on your 'must see' list when in Tenerife... You will be amazed at its stunning scenery.

We visited the National Park as part of a Thomson tour, pre ordering tickets to go on the cable car to the top of Teide volcano. Unfortunately we were unable to due to high winds, whilst very disappointed about this it is good to note there are safety limits. The park is very well kept, starting the ascent through villages...

This is moonscape on earth with all the volcanic rock in many colours and the awe inspiring sight of Mount Teide always in the background. Stop and be silent and you will see lots of wild life from lizards to eagles and plants I am sure that are only to be found in this sort of location

If you go to Tenerife you must go without hesitation to visit El Teide. It has a beautiful landscape and you can enjoy it while walking in one of the many routes they have.

We didn't go on the tram to the top of the mountain (too expensive) but we did hike a little trail at the little museum house on the way to the mountain. It was very beautiful. There wasn't much to do other than drive up the mountain though. I thought there would be like parking so we could just walk... More

Take a ride on a bike or in a car up to the cable car on Mount Teide. Then ride the cable car and once at the top have a walk around. It feels like you're on Mars. Rocky paths so wear sturdy shoes. Not suitable for wheelchairs. Well worth a visit but plan for a day trip as the... More

This park has many interesting geological formations including lava tubes, stocks of past volcanoes, fields of pumice, lava flows, craters and vents. There are also numerous beautiful wildflowers and pine trees. It's helpful to have a guide who can explain the natural surroundings for a deeper appreciation of how tumultuous the geological history has been.
