The best afternoon excursion to Teide for small groups
Enjoy Mount Teide in the afternoon, when there’s nobody else left visiting it, and marvel at what is probably the best twilight in Tenerife: the sunset at 3 555 m high with the Cable Car.
With our Sunset Tour you will fall in love with Teide at dusk so much that you will wish this experience never ends.
During the Sunset Tour on Mount Teide, which lasts 5 hours and a half, you will enjoy the spectacular volcanic landscapes that the Teide National Park is famous for while the sun is setting.
The arrival of dusk gives the area a warm glow, which allows you to appreciate subtle differences in the landscape that you don’t get to see during sunlight hours.
Since the visit takes place when everyone has already gone from the most visited national park in Europe, you will be able to seize the opportunity to observe the volcanoes that caused the most recent eruptions in Tenerife and get to know how the Canary Islands were formed, amid such peace and tranquillity as will relax all of your senses.
The Teide Cable Car is all yours on the Sunset Tour
Can you imagine what it must be like to reach an altitude of 3,555 m in your own private cable car?
Well, you don’t have to imagine it any longer because, with the Sunset Tour, this dream can become a reality! The Teide Cable Car will operate exclusively for your private group.
You will fly over craters and lava flows just before dusk.
Can you imagine the astonishing views at this time of day?
Tenerife sunset at the highest altitude and in the shadow of Teide
The twilight on this afternoon excursion to Teide will make you feel really special and privileged.
This is one of the best places to observe the formation and evolution of the shadow of Mount Teide, thanks to its height and due to the fact that the views from its summit extend to all horizons.
Teide’s shadow cast towards the island of Gran Canaria is one of the greatest spectacles that the volcano has to offer.
Marvel at the unrivalled Tenerife sunset from Pico Viejo on the Sunset Tour
The trail that leads to the Pico Viejo viewpoint is a marvel in itself.
At sunset, this trail acquires a beautiful array of colours that will be sure to leave you speechless.
Accompanied by our guides, on Sunset Tour you will discover, step by step, the volcanic wonders around this very imposing trail.
And to bid farewell to the Sunset Tour, when the weather permits, you will enjoy a picture-perfect sunset with the islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma on the horizon, and the impressive Pico Viejo crater, which is 800 m in diameter, at your feet.
Did you know that the Pico Viejo crater once housed an impressive lake of lava?
