We started our activity on a Friday morning in March. It was a beautiful sunny morning, however we did not know until last moment if the weather would permit ascending the peak. In the end we did it and it was great. After driving on mount Teide for approximatively 1 hour through pine trees and black lava, we finally arrived at the cable car at 2200 m altitude. There we waited our turn and climbed the remaining distance until the hiking spot by cable car. It should be noted that enhanced sanitary measures are in place at the cable car: only limited number of people can be in the cable car and after each group the cable car worker cleans / désinfects all the windows. Steffi is a great guide providing explanations about the geology, flora and fauna of the mountain. She is a nature and hike lover and she shares that with the people around. The hike itself is moderately difficult, it can be intense if you go fast but if you take it slow is quite easy and short.
Great trip! It was run very efficiently, everything was on time; Teide NP is gorgeous and well worth visiting! Going up the mountain was very special, I did not have the permit to climb to the very top (if you want to do it - make sure you get the permit upfront). However, I loved walking through the other trails and enjoying the scenery - amazing. There are good bathrooms and a nice cafe at the cable car station. The transport and the guide were great as well.
The ambiance on the ship was calm quiet and relaxed. It fitted well with the small boat and few passengers. The boat made a difference to crowded catamarans also cruising the area. The guide was very knowledgeable and easy going. The guide didn't participate in sailing, he was a well mannered host. Animals were abundant.
Very well organised experience. Steffi is very friendly and with high knowledge about Teide and the island. We definitely are very happy that we did this tour and we highly recommend it!
Nice crew, big and spacy ship. Strongly recommending take sunbed in front of ship (for additional cost). Lot of dolphins in our way. Los Gigantes and Masca -
