Teide National Park, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The Basics

Taking the cable car to the top of Mount Teide, the world’s third-highest volcano from its base, is one of the most popular pastimes in Teide National Park, with views spanning the surrounding islands. Visitors can choose from half-day, full-day, or evening tours of the park, which typically cover points of interest such as Pico Viejo volcano, Los Roques de Garcia rock formations, and Llano de Ucanca. Visits to the park can also be combined with tours of the Masca Valley or Puerto de la Cruz.

Cool trip
We had a very nice trip. Well organized and an excellent driver as well. The road was narrow and some segments of the road were very scary, but the driver managed them perfectly.

Teide National Park Half Day Tour
The trip was well planned, had great stops along the way to sample local food and drinks, and was able to get off for photos numerous times. The bus was well air conditioned and pick up from the airport was perfect. We didn’t book the cable car but was given the option upon arrival for an additional fee. Happy we did. The view at the top was stunning. Be aware it’s cold and windy at the top so definitely pack an extra jacket or layers. The drive up was stunning as well. Viator kept in touch and responded to and emails immediately. Highly recommend

Mnt. Teide with optional cable car

Teide National Park Half Day Trip
Very good guide and pick up arrangements with guides. Be aware that optional cable car tickets are not included and in busy high season may be unobtainable. This should be more clear.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Teide National Park is a must-see for adventure travelers and photographers.

  • Summiting Mount Teide requires a permit; apply in advance to avoid disappointment.

  • Tickets for the cable car tend to sell out quickly, so be sure to book ahead of time.

  • Don’t forget to bring sun protection and plenty of water; the climate here is hot and dry throughout the year.

  • Dress in layers, as temperatures at the peak are often much cooler than at the base.

  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
