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.

  • It is somewhat pricey (27 euros for adults) but the view at the top is simply phenomenal! The disadvantages are that it is expensive and the carts are completely stuffed. Also, the queue for tickets long, but this can be prevented by to buy a ticket in advance online. The cable car is also often close to a lot of wind, but this you can see online. But all this in not at the beautiful view.
