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 Siete Cañadas and the Ucanca Valley. From here, you can just imagine the enormous size of the old volcano that stood atop the island 150,000 years ago, and which was known as the Cañadas edifice, at a time when Mount Teide did not yet exist. In front of you stretches the Las Cañadas cirque, which has its highest point on Montaña Guajara. These are the remains of a great volcano whose own weight caused it to slide towards the northern coast in no more than a few minutes.

Its remains, millions of tons of volcanic rock, lie scattered over hundreds of kilometres in the depths of the ocean. In the huge tunnel left by the collapse of the volcano, new eruptions began immediately, and began to fill it. One of these eruptions was the origin of Mount Teide.

Over a long period of time, eruption followed eruption, forming the huge volcano from which you are now looking out at the surrounding landscape. 

If you prefer to gaze at spectacular views of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma with an impressive crater at your feet, (which once upon a time was a lake of lava), choose the path to the Pico Viejo Viewpoint, another colossal volcano over 3,000 m high, the second highest peak in the archipelago, crowned by a crater 800 m in diameter. Pico Viejo forms part of the same volcanic edifice as Mount Teide, and at its base lie the Narices del Teide [literally: the nostrils of Mount Teide], the two mouths of historic eruptions, including the last one recorded within the bounds of the National Park. 

You can take this tour of great scenic and volcanic interest with a guide, by booking the guided tour to the Pico Viejo viewpoint with a cable car ticket included.

Choose the La Fortaleza trail if you’d like to enjoy fantastic views of northern Tenerife: the outstanding valley of La Orotava, with Puerto de la Cruz on the ocean shore, although for most of the year, the valley is shrouded in clouds borne by the trade winds from the north east. As they collide with the island’s northern slopes, these winds rise up, and the moisture carried along by them condenses, until it forms a spectacular sea of cloud, which is vital to sustain Tenerife’s forests. You may also like to take this trail if you want to make your descent via Montaña Blanca.

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 the trail that leads to the crater, you will need a special free permit, issued by administration of the Teide National Park, which you must apply for months in advance. Would you like a guide for this option? Read all the information on our ascent to the peak with a cable car ticket.

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


Guarantee your seat by purchasing your Mount Teide Cable Car tickets online. You will enjoy tickets with an assigned session. It is as simple as booking a time slot for a specific date. You must show up at the Cable Car boarding area with your Online Ticket, either printed or displayed on your mobile phone, 20 minutes prior to the time specified on your Mount Teide Cable Car ticket in order to redeem it and access the boarding area to board the cabin afterwards.

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 prior to the time indicated on your Mount Teide Cable Car tickets, although we recommend that you avoid driving and choose collective transportation instead because it is important that together we do what we can to counteract overuse of the vehicle parking areas in the National Park. In addition, this represents your personal commitment to reduce greenhouse gases and to the conservation of the National Park. As a conservation measure, they have been kept to a small size, and they cannot be extended.

Which is why we offer you our tour to Mount Teide with cable car tickets included. If you finally arrive by car, it is best that you book your Mount Teide Cable Car tickets for a time slot after 1.00pm.

If for whatever reason you arrive too late for your session, you will lose the right to board.

Tickets + Guided tour to the Pico Viejo viewpoint

Would you like to ascend by cable car and also walk some of the trails with a guide? You got it! By booking this guided tour you will be able to discover all of the volcanic wonders that surround the impressive trail to the Pico Viejo viewpoint. Our guide will explain everything to you in Spanish or English. 

Please bear in mind that this activity is not suitable for people with mobility problems and children under 5.

Tickets + Teide Legend digital audio guide to Teide National Park or physical audio guide to the trails

The perfect option if you’re travelling to Teide with your own vehicle and you prefer to discover the landscape and find out about it under your own steam with the help of our Teide Legend audio guide (available in English, German, Spanish, French, Russian, Italian, Polish and Dutch for download on Android and iOS devices).

The audio guide included in this ticket is actually a full audio-guided tour of Teide National Park. 

The Teide Legend audio guide included with your cable car + audio guide ticket is an audio-guided tour to Mount Teide. It reveals the natural and cultural heritage of Tenerife and different points of interest in Teide National Park, depending on the access road you take to reach our facilities.

This audio-guided tour shows you the best viewpoints and hiking trails near the cable car base and top stations, plus restaurants, local shops, cultural centres, etc.

Characters from the “Legend of Guayota” will be your guides on this tour, and you’ll learn about the volcanology, anthropology, and history of the National Park, while you’ll be also introduced to the indigenous Guanches, Tenerife’s earliest inhabitants who worshipped the Teide volcano, and who believed its eruptions to be the expressions of the fury of the gods.

The section on trails at the top station offers detailed and essential information about the three emblematic trails that leave from Teide Cable Car top station and follow different routes across the volcano’s slopes. You can hike the trails at the same time as you learn about the most important and characteristic parts of the volcano.

The audio guide is fun and easy to use! You just need to use the booking code from your cable car + audio guide ticket to quickly and easily download the app and enjoy a complete contactless experience.

Want to know how the audio guide app works? We explain in this video. Follow the instructions to get the most from your visit to Mount Teide.

If you do not have a smartphone, you can receive a physical audio guide. In order to pick it up it is necessary to leave your passport/ID card or a deposit of €50.00 which will be returned to you when you return the audio guide. It’s important to remember that, by choosing this option, you’ll only have the audio guide to the trails at the top station.

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

The cable car ticket (except for the ticket for the ascent and the Cable Car at Sunset activity) 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.

If you book the cable car + audio guide ticket, the Teide Legend app is included with your purchase, and it features detailed audio recordings so you can enjoy the exhibition in any of the audio guide’s 8 languages.

Teide Tour: the most rewarding excursion to ascend Mount Teide by cable car

If you wish to contribute to the conservation and care of the Teide National Park, the best way to visit is using group transport—and a guide! This will help to reduce atmospheric pollution, and we can fight climate change together; at the same time, you will get to know more about this jewel of the natural world, thanks to the explanations given by our guides.

On this guided visit to the Teide National Park (available every day, and with pick-ups in the north and south of the island, and the metropolitan area of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Candelaria), you will ascend to an altitude of 3,555 metres by cable car. Once there, you can enjoy free access to the trails leading to wonderful viewing points, where you can marvel at northern Tenerife’s characteristic ‘sea of clouds’—or at the spectacular views of Pico Viejo, southern Tenerife, and some of the neighbouring islands on the horizon. It also includes a free digital audio guide to the trails at the cable car top station and entry to the “Science and Legend” exhibition.

What clothes to wear to go up Mt Teide

Our recommendations: 

  • Wear warm clothing and proper footwear. 
  • Protect yourself from sunstroke. 
  • Due to the elevated luminosity, wear sunglasses. 
  • Take plenty of water on hikes.  

Teide Cable Car is located within a fragile and protected national park. 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, make loud noises, stray from the signposted paths, feed the animals, or to camp.

  • People with heart problems, pregnant women, and children under 3 are not allowed to ascend by cable car due to the risk that high altitude poses to their health. If you have any health problems, consult your doctor before planning your visit or booking your Mount Teide Cable Car tickets.
  • 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.
  • Pets are not allowed.

Since the operation of the Cable Car is subject to the changing weather (wind speed, temperature, etc.), on occasions, the estimated boarding time may be delayed.

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 35 people on board.

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

The base station offers facilities specially designed to make your visit enjoyable: the “Science and Legend” exhibition, an official souvenir shop and a restaurant-cafeteria with a wide range of cuisine and panoramic views of the National Park. This is also the perfect place to find out about the different routes and trails you can do from the upper station.

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

Frequently asked questions

Yes. You must show up at the boarding area with your purchase confirmation, either printed or displayed on your mobile phone, 20 minutes prior to the time specified on your ticket in order to redeem it and access the boarding area to board the cabin.

In this article about ascending Mount Teide by car on our blog, you’ll find an interesting guide with the most important points of interest along each route to Mount Teide. However, we recommend not using a car and choosing collective transportation because 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 ultimately decide to come by car, it’s a good idea to arrive after 1.00pm. 
Moreover, if you finally decide to travel independently and would like to access the most comprehensive audio guide to Teide National Park, hear from legendary figures about volcanoes, geology, and the history of Mount Teide on an audio-guided tour to the main viewpoints and points of interest, and have information about the best trails near the Teide Cable Car base and top stations, we recommend choosing the ticket for the ascent and descent + audio guide.

The time slot for descent cannot be booked. The only thing you need to do is get in the queue at the upper station to descend in order of arrival.

If you are only going to buy a cable car descent ticket, we also recommend that you make the reservation online in order to avoid making the payment at the upper station, thus slowing down the queue.

Cable car tickets can only be used for the booked time and cabin given on the ticket. Boarding begins 20 minutes beforehand, so please head to the boarding zone with your ticket 20 minutes in advance. In the event that you do not arrive on time for your booking and cabin, you will lose your right to board. Remember that you can change the date of your reservation or cancel it free of charge until 6.00pm on the day prior to your booking by going to  Manage your booking

Up to 3 date changes within a maximum of 1 year are permitted. You can change the time or date, or cancel your ticket free of charge until 6.00pm on the day prior to the reserved date. Once this deadline has passed it will not be possible to make any changes or cancellations and no refunds will be made. All changes and cancellations of Cable Car tickets can be made comfortably via our booking management module.

Check out our weekly calendar of activities and excursions on Mt Teide which we have prepared so that you can view at a glance all the information you need about our activities.

Since the operation of the Cable Car is subject to the changing weather (wind speed, temperature, etc.), on occasions, the estimated boarding time may be delayed.

Your online reservation is valid for one year and you can modify or cancel it at any time at manage your booking.

No. Children under 3 are not allowed to ascend by Cable Car due to the risk that high altitude poses to their health.

 

No. You only need a permit to be able to reach the summit. You can either apply for it in advance on the National park’s website or obtain it by booking any of our hiking activities.

Yes. It only closes on December 25th. Any other closure of the facilities is due to causes beyond our control. You can confirm that the facilities are open by checking real-time updates in the Teide Today section. We have a free SMS notification service for these situations. So, if you’d like to receive an SMS in the event that adverse weather conditions the day of your booking might prevent the service from running as normal, please just provide a valid mobile phone number when you book your tickets. 

No, pets are not allowed.

We do not have a left-luggage facility.

Ideally, about 30 minutes before the time your permit begins. If there are no places available in these time slots, we recommend that you book the previous time slot closest to the start time of your permit.

For area conservation reasons, the Teide National Park restricts the time to 1 hour. Also, staying at such an altitude for more than one hour increases the risk of suffering from altitude sickness.

If you have a permit to access the peak of Teide, you can stay longer at the summit, without exceeding the 2 hours you’re allowed to spend in this area.

 

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

nice

2024/03/11

We bought two tickets for the volcano sunset tour, which we wanted to return, which according to the website, is possible until 6 pm the day before. We were three minutes late due to a bad internet connection, but the system allowed and accepted the redemption, however, citing the expired deadline, they do not want to refund the money. In the end, we bought two new tickets for this program, which started at 18:10 instead of the announced 17:30 departure, and instead of the promised two hours, it was just over an hour, including the lift time.

2023/07/25

Poor & disappointing. Not good value for money.

2024/05/24

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!
