Teide Cablecar (lower station) HERE


This experience is a must while on holiday on Tenerife Our special Mount Teide Hiking Tour will take you to the very top of the highest volcano in Spain and one of the most impressive in the world.

Declared a World Heritage Site, El Teide is the most visited National Park in Europe.

Mount Teide Hiking Tour starts at 9:00 am at the lower station of the Teide Cable Car facilities (CABLE CAR TICKETS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE) located at 2,356 meters above sea level Our guide will meet and greet you there and will continue with you during the remain of the guided tour.

After hopping on the first available cabin of the cable car and during the ascent you will surely enjoy the fantastic views of the National Park. The ride takes between 8-10 minutes so once you reach the upper station located a 3,555 meters high you will have time to check out some of the most outstanding and unique views of Tenerife.

Together with our guide you will go through the check point that gives you access to path number 10 that leads you up to the very top of the volcano. You will be entering a restricted area. It is strictly forbidden to abandon the path

From that point our Mount Teide Hiking Tour will begin the ascent on foot to the highest point while our guide will provide you with information about the past and present of the National Park in general and Mount Teide in particular. Once we reach the top we will have a minimum of 15 minutes to enjoy the views. If the weather is good we will be able to see 4 of the Canary Islands (La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro and Gran Canaria).

About 11:00 am you will start the walk back down from the crater leaving you enough free time (without the guide) to check out Pico Viejo Volcano from its viewpoint (my recommendation as its crater is 800 meters in diameter). In addition you will have time to drive by yourself and stop at all those usual visits within Teide National Park. The stop at the famous Roques de García is mandatory!

The duration of the Mount Teide Hiking Tour described is approximately 2,5 hours It is a relatively simple path but not recommended for people with respiratory or heart problems, children under 6 years of age or pregnant women.

• The daily slots to access the path that leads to Mount Teide crater are limited in number, in time and are nominative, soonce we answer your first email we will need you to send us the names, surnames and ID number of all the people who are going to complete the ascent to the peak of Teide..

• The availability of places varies constantly and until we confirm the reservation via email or telephone we cannot guarantee the completion of the activity You will not
have to pay until we have the places issued and we have notified you

• In the event that the Mount Teide Hiking Tour can not be completed due to reasons beyond our competence (adverse weather, breakdowns in the cable car facilities, etc.), the guide will carry out an alternative activity within the Teide National Park, most likely the Los Roques de García trail,and the amount of the activity will not be refunded (the cable car tickets will be refunded if the facilities are closed due to bad weather):

If you have any questions or want to check availability of places, send us an email to info@permisopicodelteide.com

The Teide National Park is located above 2,000 meters high, which is why there are very special climatic conditions. Depending on the time of year you visit you should be prepared for very hot or very cold weather especially if you have tickets to go up the Teide Cable Car.

In both cases it is always advisable to wear sunglasses, a cap, sunscreen and suitable footwear (sneakers are enough) Do not underestimate how cold it is on El Teide in winter and remember, it is high mountains so it is best to be prudent.

In the (rare) event that the cable car facilities stop working for any technical reason that cannot be solved immediately visitors who are in the upper station must descend on foot along the designated paths (minimum 3 hours).That is why people with reduced mobility are not allowed to use the cable car.

Due to the damage to health that the height could cause children under 3 years of age, pregnant women or people with severe cardiovascular or respiratory problems are not allowed to use the cable car. For any other serious pathology, it is best to ask your doctor before making any type of reservation that involves climbing the Mount Teide or even taking the Teide cable car.
