Description

Teide Cable Car for your private use at sunset

Imagine climbing the skies, 3,555m high, in an exclusive cable car, which isn’t accessible by the general public.

Imagine experiencing the impressive Cable Car at Sunset activity, where you can fly above craters and lava flows as the sun sets at the highest part of Spain.

Furthermore, Cable Car at Sunset will make you feel really special and privileged.

Because the Teide Cable Car will operate exclusively for your private group.

Your friends will be amazed by the photographs of Mount Teide and its views at this time of day, which you won’t stop sharing on your social networks!

Tenerife sunset in the shadow of the volcano with the Teide Cable Car

Feel special and privileged at the highest point in Spain while riding the Teide Cable Car at sunset.

Did you know that Tenerife’s Teide volcano is one of the best spots in the world to observe how the shadow of a mountain forms and evolves?

This is due to its height and the fact that the views from its summit extend to all horizons.

Long after the end of the Cable Car at Sunset activity you will still remember the spectacle of Teide’s shadow cast towards the island of Gran Canaria. It’s one of the most beautiful and spectacular moments that the volcano offers its visitors!

An unforgettable sunset at Pico Viejo in Tenerife with the Teide Cable Car

The Cable Car at Sunset activity includes a guided tour along the spectacular trail to the Pico Viejo viewpoint.

This trail is a wonder in itself!

Because from the Pico Viejo trail, you will have the opportunity to see, in the distance, part of the lava poured during the eruptive process that took place on Mount Teide in 1798 and lasted three months!

The eruption of 1798 formed the “Teide’s Nostrils” or “Las Narices del Teide”, the craters which spewed out lava during that historical eruption and which are located on the western slopes of Pico Viejo.

On the Cable Car at Sunset tour, with the assistance of our guides, you will discover all of the volcanic wonders that surround this impressive trail to the Pico Viejo viewpoint. The trail and the surrounding scenery acquire a truly remarkable array of colours at sunset, which are unforgettable to visitors.

The spectacular sunset that you will enjoy at the end of the trail to the Pico Viejo viewpoint is the jewel in the crown of the Cable Car at Sunset activity.

If the weather permits, you will experience a unique view over the neighbouring islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma on the horizon, with the impressive Pico Viejo crater at your feet, which is 800 m in diameter and at one time, hosted an impressive lava lake.

Complete your Cable Car at Sunset activity with a guided tour of Teide National Park

If you have no doubts that the best moment to enjoy Teide National Park is when there’s nobody else left in the park;

If you wish to enjoy the volcanic landscapes you already know, but in a different light, at twilight, which will make Europe’s most visited National Park surprise you again;

If you’re curious about the secrets that the Teide National Park’s volcanic formations hold, and about the history of the formation of the Canary Islands...

Sign up for our Sunset & Stars including both transportation and the service of a guide, during which we will let you enjoy the National Park in the late afternoon and an incredibly beautiful sunset.

Complete your Cable Car at Sunset activity with dinner and astronomical observation on Mount Teide

If you already know that you won’t want the evening to end after living this volcanic experience;

If you like tasting local cuisine of the places you visit and you have a gourmet palate, our suggestion to extend your Cable Car at Sunset activity includes a dinner menu designed by Erlantz Gorostiza, a renowned chef awarded 2 Michelin stars.

If the stars, constellations, planets and the entire Universe fascinate you, with our proposal, you will conduct observations of the night sky using long range telescopes and enjoy the explanations, provided by our Starlight guides, of the starry sky over Mount Teide, from where it is possible to see 83 of the 88 existing constellations.

In order to enjoy the Cable Car at Sunset activity, remember that you must be prepared for extremely cold conditions, regardless of the time of year, as even in summer, during the sunset on Mount Teide, the temperatures are low at this altitude.

How to dress to go up Mt Teide

This is why we recommend that you:

  • Wear warm clothing and proper footwear. 
  • Due to the elevated luminosity, wear sunglasses. 
  • Take plenty of water on hikes.
  • Since the Cable Car at Sunset activity includes a Teide Cable Car ride, people with heart problems and pregnant women are not allowed to participate in it due to the risk that high altitude poses to their health. If you have any health problems, we recommend that you consult with your doctor before planning your visit.
  • Children under 8 are not allowed to participate in this activity to watch the sunset from Mount Teide with the Cable Car.
  • In accordance with current regulations, persons with any physical disability or motor impairment are not permitted to make the ascent by cable car, because of the potential risks if the vehicle has to be evacuated.
  • It is essential to bear in mind that in the event of the failure of the cable car system due to unexpected technical reasons, passengers already at the upper station will have to make their descent on foot and using steep mountain paths.

Cable Car at Sunset includes a 40-minute walk both ways of medium-low difficulty, therefore you must be in good physical shape.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO PRODUCE THE BOOKING CONFIRMATION, EITHER PRINTED OR DISPLAYED ON A MOBILE DEVICE.

Since our activity to watch the sunset from Mount Teide with Cable Car finishes at a time that does not allow you to reach the Altavista Refuge before it closes at 10.00pm, it is not possible to combine our activities at sunset or our stargazing activities with a stay in the Altavista Refuge on the day of the activity.

However, you can stay at the Parador de Las Cañadas del Teide hotel on the day of the activity, although you will need to make a reservation at the Parador hotel yourself.

This depends on the availability of spaces. That is why we recommend that you book your Cable Car at Sunset at least one day in advance.

You cannot use the Cable Car whilst pregnant, as the ascent involves a sudden change in pressure and level of oxygen.

Great activity! A must when in Tenerife!

2019/09/10

organizzazione pessima, il gruppo era troppo numeroso, siamo stati assegnati all'ultima cabina, arrivati in cima in ritardo, la guida si è affrettata per raggiungere il resto del gruppo ma siamo arrivati con il Sole che era praticamente tramontato. A quel punto un'altra guida, che parlava Inglese a malapena ci ha invitato a tornare indietro, erano passati meno di due minuti dal nostro arrivo. Quando le ho fatto notare che eravamo partiti in ritardo mi ha risposto che bisognava tornare indietro per ragioni di sicurezza, cosa vera, ma che nulla ha a che fare col fatto ci hanno fatto partire in ritardo. Ho scritto una mail al servizio clienti chiedendo un rimborso in quanto, di fatto, il nostro gruppo non ha svolto l'attività proposta e mi è stato risposto che tutto si era svolto secondo i piani. Per inciso, l'unico gruppo che ha raggiunto il posto in tempo è stato quello degli Spagnoli.
