Teide Cable Car facilities are perfectly equipped, including a shop and a café, 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 an exhibition, 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 cable car base station has a car park with 220 parking spaces.

Shops

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

Prompt, comfortable and cable car tickets managed well. Good communications to. However the tour needs to offer a little more of the national park, not least access to one of the small villages that other tours provide.

2024/05/06

Up front your bus driver was EXCELLENT I would give him 5 stars. Our tour guide was more interested and friendly with Spanish speaking. When she did translate to English it was very soft spoken & short. We stopped for toilets, coffee & food but one had to eat, pee & drink quickly. You must always remember the women's line is always longer and slower than the men's. We got to the cable car and were able to ride to the top but the 1 hour we had plus 1/2 to get in line for the cable car to get us back down was to short. The two walks available based on the brochure took anywhere from 25-30 minutes one-way. The pathway was very uneven and major tripping hazard. For a kid or under 30 this is probably easy to do, however, when you get retired folks its not that easy and safe. More time was needed up at the top. We then drove to the Caldera which gave us 25 minutes and in order to climb the steps one needed more time. I noticed there was a visitor's center, which we never got to see. Not sure but there might have been interesting information in there. One other thing because the roads have so many windy, hairpin turns it would be good to let people know that before they get on the bus instead of when you are on the bus. Again the bus driver was awesome. The other thing I didn't like was when I looked the tour up it was 74 but I had to check with my kids & hubbie and when I went back a few minutes later the price had jumped to 85. Would I recommend this tour, probably not.

The same as in answear before

Brilliant trip, very well organised and the guide and driver were exceptional! The whole trip was amazing and anyone visiting Tenerife should go and see Teide with Volcano Teide - brilliant organisation and knowledge. Plus Harry our guide was funny with it too so made for a perfect trip!

Il pacchetto completo è funzionale, perché comprensivo di trasporto con pullman, guida e biglietto della cabinovia, peccato però i tanti limiti e pecche: - In totale siamo stati in ballo circa 7 ore, di cui quasi 4 ore in pullman (A/R) - La guida era in inglese nonostante avessimo prenotato quella in italiano, difatti siamo stati contattati il giorno prima telefonicamente scusandosi del fatto che la guida in italiano non ci sarebbe stata e se fosse un problema, altrimenti avremmo potuto aspettare il tour della settimana successiva. Peccato però che da lì a due giorni saremmo dovuti tornare indietro, e non vi era neanche la possibilità di rimborso. - Arrivati alla stazione della cabinovia alle 10, il pullman sarebbe ripartito alle 12 e potevamo stare il cima massimo 1 ora, peccato che in cima sono presenti 2 sentieri che portano a dei belvedere e che entrambi durino 45 minuti l'uno (A/R) quindi impossibili da fare entrambi. - Sulla via del rientro, ci sono stati diversi stop di 10 minuti lungo dei punti panoramici, neanche il tempo di scendere e salire. Avrei apprezzato la possibilità di passare più tempo sul Teide e nei punti panoramici, un tour troppo mordi e fuggi dato anche dal fatto che la sveglia per noi è suovata alle 6.30 del mattino per essere al pick-up point alle 7.35. Ho pagato due biglietti 170 euro, il costo della cabinovia è di 41 euro a testa A/R (82 euro in due), gli altri 90 euro per un servizio abbastanza scarno e frettoloso. La prossima volta tornerò in autonomia andando con la mia auto nonostante venga sconsigliato, difatti in cima era pieno di automobili e persone non facenti parte di tour. Una truffa legalizzata.

We loved the trip and the view and immensity of Mount Tiede was breathtaking. You find out lots about the history of the volcano and the surrounding areas. There is a lovely cafe, museum and public toilets at the bottom of the cable car ride. I really liked the little museum as it tells the story of the myth and thre science of the volcano.

Description

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

On this organised Mount Teide Tour with cable car return tickets with a digital audio guide of the trails, 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 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 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 with a digital audio guide of the trails 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 and which audio guide tracks to listen to:

  • 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.

Can you imagine a better excursion than this Mount Teide Tour with cable car? 

We already know which will be your favourite excursion: Mount Teide Tour in Tenerife!

Live the Teide Legend at the Teide “Science and Legend” exhibition!

The Teide Tour with Cable Car Tickets includes free admission to the “Science and Legend” exhibition which you will find at the Teide Cable Car Visitors’ Centre.

Teide Legend Exhibition included in the cable car ticket

You will learn about Mount Teide’s last major eruption (around 1,000 years ago) which the indigenous Guanches probably interpreted as a fight between mythological deities—an explanation far removed from that which science now attributes to volcanic eruptions.

The characters of the legend of Guayota, both gods and humans, will show you their vision of the stages of the eruption that took place back then, and which formed the pylon at the summit of Mount Teide, known locally as “el tapón del Teide” [the Teide cap]. A magical story in which good and evil join in an epic battle. Along with the legend, you will be shown reliable data to illustrate the scientific interpretation of the eruption. Although the two perspectives may seem diametrically opposed, they are in fact closely connected.

In addition, you can have a great time at our Visitors’ Centre, where you can find brilliant mementoes of your visit to the legend of the Teide National Park at our official souvenir shop. And you can relax and enjoy a culinary experience with panoramic views of the National Park in Spain’s highest restaurant and snack bar, whose badge of identity is the distinctly Canary Island character of its food and drink.
