“Be prepared to get ripped off!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2014 NEW

Visited here through First Choice/Thompson were not told had to pay a further €26 (£24) )each on top of €35 each already paid for half day trip here to actually go up on the cable car to go up Mt Teide. Paid €70 for myself and partner to sit in the cafe in the car park for an hour
Yes the views are stunning and the other volcanoes are well worth seeing but better if you hire a car and organise your own trip
We complained we had been misled but waste of time our holiday rep wasn't interested.

“new experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2014 NEW

If you have half a day, do not miss a chance to visit Teide mountain, 3.7 km high, you can see ita snow top from any place in the Tenerife Island. Up to 2 km level you can arrive by auto/bus (40 km from Puerto de la Cruz), walk in the desert landscape, and continue with the funicular to the next, snow level with amazing view over the region

“Another world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2014 NEW

We went there twice on our trip this December. The first time as part of a tour, which only gave enough time for the briefest of stops before having to get back on the bus. However, we were intrigued enough to hire a car and go back and spend time in the park at our leisure. It's an easy drive up there from the SW resorts and much better than being in a tour bus. We got there early enough in the morning to do the Roques de Garcia circular walk (about 90 mins) and then head across to the cable car for the ride to nearly the summit. When we arrived at the cable car station there were no queues and we got straight on, but when we came back down the queues were long as the tour buses had arrived. The ride in the cable car is great fun, but is expensive. At the top, we could only do one of the walks, as the rest were closed because of snow and ice.However, the walk we did do to Pico Viejo provided spectacular views. It's cold up there so bring a jacket. Also you really need decent footwear, as the paths are very rocky.

Face it, if you come to Tenerife and you don't drive up to the Teide, than you haven't been to Tenerife... Don't forget your camera, you will get awesome picture's here.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2014 NEW

Like landing on Mars!

Such impressive scenery. When driving up suddenly Mount Teide comes into sight and takes your breath away.

We went up the cable car to the top, bit of a cue, but what else can you expect?

Go!
