went to Mount Teide volcanic crater-stunning and scenery fantastic-lovely trip.Cable car costs 27 eoros which is pricey for an 8 minute trip when you are paying 25 euros for the half day trip-however enjoy the views at the bottom of the cable car.

So many people come to Tenerife and never get to see outside the tourist areas. There are loads of organised excursions or simply hire a car for the day and drive yourself. The scenery is breath taking. So always beautiful like the English Lake District or the Scottish Highlands but breath taking in the sense that's it is so unique.... More

New National Park Facility in El Mayourado is very interesting including many films, presentations and simulations showing the flora and fauna and he formation of volcanos.

We visited Mount Teide as part of a Thomson excursion on 14th July. The views on the way up, looking down on Puerto de la Cruz, are just incredible. The journey up did make me feel a little sick with the tight, swerving roads but once in the National Park the roads are much better! We never went up in... More

Great day out. We drove from near Los Gigantes in our basic hire car VW polo. It takes just over an hour to get to the cable car if you don't stop for a photo stop as there is many. Unfortunately we could go up on the cable car as it was closed due to high winds. The temp at... More

The drive up is great. You go up from the banana fields of the coastline through a forest to a volcanic landscape not to be missed. We went on a day that was very cloudy looking from the beach, but the forest was misty and mysterious, and it was much warmer above in the volcanic rock than it was at... More

Visited Mt Teide and the surrounding national park recently and were just blown away by the scenery. Most impressive are the numerous lava flows, you can just imagine the scene when the volcano was still active and the lava was still red hot. My advice though is if you intend taking the cable car to the sumit, is book your... More

Drive there, book a coach tour. The views are un - worldly and will take your breath away, the drive up / down the mountain is as good as the destination. Hikers and walkers are in for a treat in the national park along the well identified trails. Proper footwear, sunscreen and water a must if your venturing along the... More

Booked a coach trip through the park. The tour guide did a non stop commentary in three languages telling us about what we were about to see. The coach driver did an excellent job on the twisting mountain roads, giving us a few scary moments along the way. Plenty of stops for toilets, food or taking pictures. The scenery is... More

We had a trip out for half a day, visiting the area, beautiful views, pure fresh air so clean, and was hot to walk around even though they said to wrap up as its cold at the top, it wasn't in July, we got some great photos worth a visit.
