Teide Cable Car, Tenerife

2.6
Take the cable car to the summit of Spain’s highest mountain, Mount Teide, set in its largest national park. Teide Cable Car takes you on an eight-minute journey to 3,555 m (11,663 ft) above sea level. As you ascend, observe the unusual rock formations and array of colors formed by the mountain, which is an active volcano. Once you reach the summit, marvel at the far-reaching views of the park and island. The upper station serves as the starting point for three popular walking routes. Bring a picnic with you or eat at the cafe located at the lower station. Warm clothes are recommended, as it can be quite cold at high altitude.
