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.

Teide National Park Half Day Trip
Great family experience. Tour guide very good with all his stories. Keeps you entertained while on the bus trip. Kids (7)(5) were listening and interested in the stories, which helped while on the bus. Also good way to see the area while sitting back getting some local knowledge

Perfect for a quick trip to Teide

Teide 1/2 Day
I chose this trip as I only wanted to see Teide and most the other trips visited other villages and stopped for lunch etc. This trip was perfect as it was approximately 4.5 hours from Santa Cruz and back again. There was one stop for a toilet break for 15 minutes which was perfect. The bus used was very good and the driver felt very safe. I would recommend checking the likelihood of the cable car being in operation as it wasn't operating in early February because of wind and ice.

Quad safari Teide National Park
The company used almost brand new equipment, which was very nice to drive up the mountain. They gave good instructions how to use it and what to expect during the tour. Scheduled time at the highest point was 30 min, but talk to them to get some more time to have a coffee at the cafe and a short walk to see the view without rushing. We had stops on the way up to enjoy the amazing view. They also offered pickup and drop off at the hotel you’re staying for free. I highly recommend to take this tour up the mountain, it’s like being on the moon.

  • 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.
