Tenerife sunset in the shadow of the volcano with the Teide Cable Car
Feel special and privileged at the highest point in Spain while riding the Teide Cable Car at sunset.
Did you know that Tenerife’s Teide volcano is one of the best spots in the world to observe how the shadow of a mountain forms and evolves?
This is due to its height and the fact that the views from its summit extend to all horizons.
Long after the end of the Cable Car at Sunset activity you will still remember the spectacle of Teide’s shadow cast towards the island of Gran Canaria. It’s one of the most beautiful and spectacular moments that the volcano offers its visitors!
An unforgettable sunset at Pico Viejo in Tenerife with the Teide Cable Car
The Cable Car at Sunset activity includes a guided tour along the spectacular trail to the Pico Viejo viewpoint.
This trail is a wonder in itself!
Because from the Pico Viejo trail, you will have the opportunity to see, in the distance, part of the lava poured during the eruptive process that took place on Mount Teide in 1798 and lasted three months!
The eruption of 1798 formed the “Teide’s Nostrils” or “Las Narices del Teide”, the craters which spewed out lava during that historical eruption and which are located on the western slopes of Pico Viejo.
On the Cable Car at Sunset tour, with the assistance of our guides, you will discover all of the volcanic wonders that surround this impressive trail to the Pico Viejo viewpoint. The trail and the surrounding scenery acquire a truly remarkable array of colours at sunset, which are unforgettable to visitors.
The spectacular sunset that you will enjoy at the end of the trail to the Pico Viejo viewpoint is the jewel in the crown of the Cable Car at Sunset activity.
If the weather permits, you will experience a unique view over the neighbouring islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma on the horizon, with the impressive Pico Viejo crater at your feet, which is 800 m in diameter and at one time, hosted an impressive lava lake.
