Description

Go up Mount Teide by Cable Car

Enjoy the quickest way to go up Mount Teide.

When you get off the cable car, you will be at an altitude of 3,555 m, and will have various choices on how to take in the stunning views of the largest national park in the Canary Islands.

Choose the viewpoint of La Rambleta to behold the views of the Seven Cañadas and the Ucanca Valley.

If you prefer to see some spectacular views of the islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma, with the impressive Pico Viejo crater at your feet, which is 800 m in diameter and at one time, hosted an impressive lava lake, then choose the trail to the Pico Viejo viewpoint.

Choose the trail to La Fortaleza to enjoy marvellous views of the northern part of Tenerife or to descend on foot from Montaña Blanca afterwards.

And if you are one of those people who won’t leave Tenerife without having reached the summit of Mt. Teide, choose the Telesforo Bravo trail to the peak of Teide and shout ‘I am the King of the world’ from an altitude of 3 718 m. But remember that for this trail, you will need a special free permit, issued by administration of the Teide National Park, which you must apply for months in advance.

Use the Teide Cable Car Online Tickets and take advantage of their benefits

Avoid queues at the ticket office by purchasing your Mount Teide Cable Car tickets online. You will be able to directly access the boarding area. It is as simple as booking your boarding time for a specific date. 

If you haven’t booked your Teide Cable Car tickets online, you will be assigned one of the daily sessions available at the ticket office. However, if you choose this option, you might have to wait several hours in high season to board the cable car or you might even miss the chance to buy Mount Teide Cable Car tickets for the day of your visit, which is why we recommend that you purchase a Teide Cable Car Online Ticket and access the cabin directly.

You must show up at the Cable Car boarding area with your Online Ticket, either printed or displayed on your mobile phone, 10 minutes prior to the boarding time specified on your Mount Teide Cable Car ticket.

If you arrive by private vehicle, which you will need to park, we recommend that you show up at the premises of the Cable Car half an hour prior to the boarding time indicated on your Teide Cable Car tickets.

If for whatever reason you arrive too late to board at your booked time, you will lose the right to board and you will be assigned the next boarding time available.
