Mt Teide Crater Hike and Cable Car Ride
Swap Tenerife?s beaches for the rugged, lava-cut landscape of Teide National Park on this 4-hour tour, led by an expert guide. After pickup from your hotel in north or south Tenerife, journey to the heart of the island, through the stunning Vilaflor region or La Orotava, to Mt Teide and the UNESCO-listed Teide National Park. Ascend the slopes of the volcano and then travel by cable car to a head-spinning 11,663 feet (3,555 meters), where you?ll embark on a 1-hour hike to Spain?s highest point.

Start with a pickup from your hotel in north or south Tenerife, and then travel by air-conditioned vehicle to Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site surrounding Mt Teide volcano in the heart of the island.

Take in the sights as you journey through the forested La Orotava area or the lunar landscape of Vilaflor (depending on where your hotel is situated), and then, as your vehicle ascends the side of Mt Teide, listen to your expert guide share interesting facts and anecdotes about the still-active volcano.

After traveling to a height of around 7,730 feet (2,356 meters), grab your camera and hop out of your transfer vehicle. Spend a few moments soaking up the views and snapping photos, then board the cable car (own expense) with your guide and group. During your 8-minute ride, creep further up Mt Teide and be wowed by island panoramas and sweeping views of the expansive Las Cañadas Caldera below.

On arrival at the upper cable car station, which sits at a dizzying 11,663 feet, set off on your hike to the Mt Teide crater ? the highest point of Spain. With your guide leading the way along the well-worn trail, admire the craggy landscape of weather-beaten rock formations, rivers of petrified lava and vibrant wild flowers.

After roughly an hour of hiking, arrive at the Mt Teide crater. Wander around the extinct crater and be rewarded with jaw-dropping views of Tenerife and the Canary Islands. When the time comes, return to your air-conditioned vehicle and journey back to your hotel.

Please note: In the event of unfavorable weather conditions and the closure of the cable car, the tour will follow an alternate route.
