Did a half day tour which cost about £15 plus £20 for cable car ride. Tour had a guide who told you all about the history of the volcano and surrounding area, you stopped off at Vilaflor for coffee on the way up (try the Canarian Coffee with condensed milk - fab and only 1 Euro). Cable car was amazing,... More

Taking a trip up to Teide National park is well worth it. We happened to go on a bright sunny December day so had very good views of the rock formations, the mountains, the pine trees and just the general scenery. Well worth a visit. The main thing I would certainly do next time is hire a car, not go... More

My family rented a car and drove to Mt Teide National Park ourselves. The drive from Playa de las Americas was STUNNING! Vegetation, scenery, and climate up on Teide were spectacular and unexpected due to our tropical beach surroundings at the vacation villa. You simply must make the trip to Teide, you will not regret it! A note to people... More

Mt Teide National Park was well worth the visit. You really need to allow at least a half day to take a good look around & the area to cover was quite vast. Fabulous views, very surprising terraine & an altogether excellent experience. We had great light the day we ascended & everything was really clear, so if at all... More

This is once of the must visit place in Tenerife, Spain. The rocky mountain / volcano has it own majestic view at is placed at higher altitudes above the clouds. This gives a perfect location to watch the stars, milky ways and whats not in the night with clarity. A handy telescope with a guide will be nice, if you... More

First time in tenerife. I really did not fancyTenerife. However my wife got a deal that I couldn't turn down and I'm so please she did. I like to think I'm quite a seasoned traveller, so was not expecting much. What I got was some of the most spectacular scenery I've ever seen. The roads are good, wide and well... More

One of the best excursion we have ever taken. The tour goes up through the cloud layer to watch the sunset (with champagne), over La Gomera, then dinner, included at the Parador hotel and then stargazing with a very knowledgeable guide. An expensive excursion ( 75€), but well worth it. The only down side was, we booked though Thomsons which... More

We waited for ages to get in the the cable car, nearly an hour. At the top there was a short walk and that was it. When you add the cost for a whole family it was very expensive, around 170€.

A good experience to take the cable car nearly to the top of Teide. The cable car station is at an elevation of 2250 m and the 8 minute ride get you up to 3550 meters. To get to the top you can book for a guided trip up to the 3718 meter summit. It is cold when you get... More
