“Good hiking to the top, amazing views”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Great views from the top. Cable car cost € 25 per person (return) and takes you to almost the top. To reach the top you must apply before for a special permit:

Top tips: 1. Wear warm clothes
2. Rent a car, as bus is not frequent and a hell of a ride
3. Go and explore (early morning is the best time to arrive, cable car starts at 9 am)
4. Drive the route to Santa Cruz (TF-24), it's amazing

“stunning”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

definatley worth a trip, journey up is quite long but the view is well worth it, the cable car i thought was very over priced at 25 euros especially if you are going as a family.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a great half day trip from Costa Adeje. Remember time is taken to pick up travellers from other resorts before heading off up the mountain. The Cable car is Euros 25 each, no point in making the trip unless you are prepared for this expense. Air noticeably thin once you get up there, be prepared to be easily out of breath. On a clear day wonderful views, cool and an adventure.

“Great nature and view !”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

If you like the nature, and would like to try walking on the side of a vulcano, this is the place to go... You need to take the cable car up the side, and I cant remember the price for that. The air is very thin up there so you need a good condition to walk. But I think it is worth the money. If you would like to go all the way to the top, you will need a health pass before you go, I think you can get it in the towns somewhere.

“Worth the scarey bus ride!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The lava flows and vistas are definitely worth the trip! Bus ride was a little scarey, very narrow roads and scarey turns, but all in a days work :)
