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.

  • Supernatural! To reach the Summit and crater el Teide is INEXPLICABLE! Brutal, the great change in temperature, can be bathing you on the beach and in a couple of hours shaking to 0 degrees!

  • The queue clean organization. I do not know if it is worked out is as always when it comes to waiting for the queue. There are plenty of information and to make reservations via the internet, to avoid getting stuck in the queue. So I did and then 3 times in a row cancelled my booking without giving a reason. Then you must call and speak the best Spanish to change my booking without having the certainty that there will be cancellations. As I can get to the place where views are like from Star Wars is waiting well. ... waiting and searching for a parking space. Organizers recommend to arrive 30 minutes before the scheduled reservation to find a parking space I recommendations at least 90 minutes. Because so much it took me finding it and the start of the queue. Thankfully, is about 12 had its start around 13. .... it's cold so taking into account the expectation of better to wear. In General, the tourist attraction is according to me the way to go.

  • An aberration built at the time which Canary was in disgrace. Looks ugly, works poorly, arriving above tells you TO WALK up TO THE OLD PEAK MAKES a COUNCIL PERMIT is MISSING... that 3500 metres. Best to upload walking excursions and remove that monster from the beautiful teide

  • The drive to the station - it is definitely worth it but the extra €54 (for 2 adults) to wait 1hr+ to get on the cable car then see nothing extra compared to what you have already seen on your way up there isn't worth it. For hikers I'm sure it's great but for others it isn't.
  • The pictures show it all to be honest. There isn't much at the top, nowhere to get a drink. There is some toilets but that's it. Having paid €40.50 for myself and my 8year old, I wouldn't go again - it's a bit expensive in my opinion for what's up there. If there was a restaurant of coffee shop that you could sit in and enjoy the surroundings then fine but as there isn't it's a bit of a waste of money.
  • Very quick transport up to the top of Teide. Not bad food at the bottom but there is a lack of seating. Also very few spots of shade outside.
  • Great service to the top of Teide. To climb last 100 m , permission has to be granted by local park. Beautiful views of crater, sea of clouds and other Canary Islands.
  • After hiking up the volcano for 3 hours and 40 mins from Montana Blanca I was relieved to see this once I had reached the top And after all the pictures had been taken I just wanted to get back down the volcano , head straight for my hotel and jump in the shower and get some sleep as quickly as possible And thanks to the cable car it made my dream a lot more achievable Jumped straight in the cue bought my ticket Handed it over to the ticket inspector and just waited to board Whilst inside you get an amazing view And before you know it you've reached the bottom Maybe not for people who are claustrophobic because the car takes a maximum amount of people up and down the volcano and that's exactly how many get crammed in like little sardines in a tin 😁 Overall would definitely use it again
