Description

A Mount Teide Tour with cable car that has everything you need

On this organised Mount Teide Tour with cable car (optional) return tickets, you’ll discover Teide National Park: the most visited national park in Europe. You’ll also be visiting the park in a sustainable way.

From the comfort of our bus and accompanied by an official guide, you will discover scenery that will leave you wide-eyed with wonder as you ascend towards the peak. Because Tenerife is an enormous mountain in the middle of the ocean. Its roads climb to reach the heart of the island: Mount Teide. Along the way, you will pass through different bioclimatic levels.

As you leave the coast, made barren by endless sunshine, the proximity of the sea and the lack of rain, you will enter the mid-altitude zone. This contains the finest agricultural land, chosen by the European settlers as the site for Tenerife’s historic towns. A series of towns is strung like a necklace at a mid altitude of between 400 and 500 metres above sea level: Arona, La Orotava, Santiago del Teide… All still conserve a historical legacy worth discovering.

If your Teide excursion takes you up the north side, the likelihood is that from 600 metres above sea level you will be engulfed by dense fog. You will be in the belt below the area of direct impact of the moist trade winds that blow in from the north-east, forming a sea of cloud. Here, laurel woods clothe the scenery in a rich green colour, and you will feel a coolness that will make you reach for your coat. Soon, at an altitude of 1,000 metres, the laurel woods give way to dense, humid pine forests, that extend up to 2,000 metres. But if your ascent takes you up the south side, where the sea of cloud struggles to form, you’ll be in the pine forest from an altitude of 600 metres.

When you reach the high mountain area, you will see the sea of cloud at your feet, and you will feel as if you are flying above it. The flora of Las Cañadas comprises broom, laburnum and a vast array of other plants, most of them endemic to these peaks. Here, the extreme climate, with significant fluctuations between summer and winter, and even between day and night, determines the pattern of life. Scrub clothes the slopes of the Las Cañadas cirque, and those of Mount Teide itself. But as you make your way towards the peak, it gradually disappears... Only the beautiful Teide violet survives at 3,000 metres on the volcano.

And throughout your trip to Mount Teide, you will see the volcanoes that formed Tenerife, some as old as the island itself, and others more recent.

Furthermore, since (optional) cable car tickets to go up Mount Teide are already included, you don’t have to worry about missing the chance to book your seat. We have thought of everything so that you can enjoy your Mount Teide Tour without worrying about a thing!

Enjoy spectacular views of Tenerife and some of the neighbouring islands on this excursion to ascend Mount Teide

Our Teide Tour includes tickets for the ascent and descent (optional) to take you up to an altitude of 3,555 metres so that you can enjoy stunning views of Tenerife and some of the neighbouring islands, whilst at the same time seeing one of the world’s most extraordinary volcanic landscapes. On Las Cañadas, you will see different types of lava and volcanic rock formations, beginning with Mount Teide itself, a stratovolcano of the Vesuvian type.

Mount Teide was formed gradually, as eruption followed eruption. Each eruption added another level to the volcanic edifice. Mount Teide began as a small volcanic cone at the base of Las Cañadas 150,000 years ago, and reached a height of 3,718 metres 1,000 years ago, when its most recent eruptions occurred; these formed the current peak and the streams of black lava that flow down its slopes. Now Mount Teide is the highest peak in the Atlantic region, the highest peak in Spain, and the third highest volcano on Earth measured from the sea bed, from where it reaches a height of 7,500 metres.

When you reach the cable car upper station, you can choose which views you’d like to enjoy:

  • Admire Siete Cañadas and the Ucanca valley from La Rambleta viewpoint
  • Follow the La Fortaleza trail and enjoy spectacular views of northern Tenerife
  • Choose the Pico Viejo viewpoint trail and admire views of southern Tenerife with the impressive 800-m-diameter Pico Viejo crater at your feet and, if the weather permits, the islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma on the horizon.

+ Information

The schedule depends on the collection point. You can select it during the booking process. 

When going on a Mount Teide Tour, you should be prepared for extremes in weather, both heat as well as cold, depending on the time of year in which you enjoy this Mount Teide Tour with cable car.

Half-day Mount Teide Tour with cable car

Teide Cable Car is located within a protected national park and therefore we must follow a series of basic rules of civic behaviour and respect of the natural environment, such as not littering or taking rocks, plants or animals. Please remember that it is prohibited to make fire, loud noises or to camp.

  • People with cardiovascular conditions, pregnant women, and children under the age of 3 are not allowed on the Teide Cable Car, because of the risks posed to their health by the altitude.
  • 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 Teide 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.
  • Suitcases and large bags are not permitted.
  • Under current restrictions due to COVID-19, face masks must be worn on all forms of public transport. This means that face masks must be used for all activities, including the cable car ride, visits to the Observatory (due to the need to move between facilities), and transport services. Without a mask, you will not be allowed to engage in the activities. In this case, your visit will be cancelled, and 100% of the charge will be payable.

  • The stay at the upper station is limited to one hour. 
  • It is necessary to produce the booking confirmation, either printed or displayed on a mobile device.

Reservations may be cancelled or the date of the activity may be changed free of charge up to 24 hours prior to the activity. After this period, 100% of the amount will be charged.

In the event that weather conditions impede the operation of the cable car for the ‘Teide Tour and Cable car ride’ activity, the price of the cable car return ticket shall be reimbursed at the following rates: Adults €38.00 (non-resident) or €15.00 (resident); Children €19.00 (non-resident) or €9.50 (resident).

Date changes are valid for 1 year provided that the vouchers have not been redeemed. Any change of date or cancellation of the activity must be made within a period of no more than 30 days from the date of the initial booking. Up to 3 date changes are permitted.

Check our Terms and conditions for detailed information on other reasons for cancellation.

Teide Cable Car facilities are perfectly equipped, including a shop, a café and a waiting room with Wi-Fi, among others, so that you can enjoy while you stay here.

The base station

The Teide Cable Car base station is perfectly accessible by road and is located at 2,356 m above sea level.

Its modern facilities are equipped with two cabins that travel to the top in under 8 minutes and can hold a maximum of 44 passengers, although for the comfort of our customers, we usually do not take more than 37 people on board.

The views from the base station allow you to behold the spectacular peaks surrounding the Teide volcano.

The base station offers visitors a relaxation area, café and buffet restaurant with impressive views over Teide National Park as well as a souvenir shop and public toilets. This is also the perfect place to find out about the different routes and trails you can do from the upper station.

The upper station

The Teide Cable Car upper station is the starting point of three spectacular trails at the summit of Mount Teide, which are directly accessible from a small hall from where you can walk outside. It has Wi-Fi, toilets and the highest public telephone in all of Spain.

Although there is not a café in the upper station, you will have vending machines at your disposal with drinks and non-perishable food such as snacks.

We recommend that you come prepared for all weather conditions since the upper station is at an altitude of 3,555 m.

Parking

Avoid the car. Choose collective transportation. It is important that together we do what we can to counteract overuse of the vehicle parking areas in the National Park. As a conservation measure, they have been kept to a small size, and they cannot be extended. If you finally decide to arrive by car, please do so after 1.00pm.

The Teide Cable Car base station has a free car park with 220 parking spaces.

Shops

The Teide Cable Car base station’s facilities include an information centre and a shop.

Restaurant / Café

The base station offers visitors a relaxation area, café and buffet restaurant with impressive views over Teide National Park.

Toilets

There are public toilets at both the base station and the upper station, which remain open during the opening hours of the facilities.

In case of tickets which include a discount for children or local residents, a supporting document is required to prove entitlement to discount.

Fantastic trip to summit of Mount Teide . Spectacular views from the very top. I highly recommend this day trip.

Nice experience. Personally would have liked to to the absolute top, but unfortunaly, only 200 daytickets are issued, but perhaps rightly so, as far as crowds are concerned. ***.

2022/06/22

We would definitely recommend this tour! We learned so much about Tenerife and Teide’s history. It was a nice break from the beaches. We saw some amazing views from the bus and made several stops where we were able to explore and take photos. Great tour.
