Full description
Visit the largest national park in the Canary Islands and experience a volcanic landscape of unrivaled beauty with your Mount Teide cable car ticket. Don't miss daybreak and sunset, which are moments of great beauty in the park. Catch the opportunity when night falls to stargaze. Enjoy indescribable spectacles whatever the season, with explosions of color from the blossoms of Teide white broom or Teide bugloss in springtime to the snows that cover the volcano in winter. From the base station, board the cable car for the 8-minute ride up to the highest peak in Spain. The cable car’s upper station, at 3,555 meters, is the point of departure for 3 interesting trails for hiking enthusiasts.

    There was some uncertainty about whether we could go up. Everything was closed at the agreed departure time. There was no information about why or whether we could still do it. Eventually the desk opened and we were allowed to check in. When it turned out that our tickets were canceled through GetYourGuide ?? After insistence we were eventually allowed to go up.

    Friendly staff, great view. Gladly again. However, one stood close together in the gondolas - despite Corona. An uneasy feeling. It's a shame, especially since the mask requirement was meticulously observed outdoors. Don't forget: Make sure to reserve the ascent to Teide in advance.
