  • Drove from Los Gigantos up to Teide. Was very charmed by the raw nature and the sculpted rock formations. Once you were up in the area around Mount Teide, it felt almost as if the roads were horizon. Are you on Tenerife one must not cheat itself for the experience. I had been young and lightweight I would have laced hiking boots.

  • A truly fascinating landscape resembles that of another world. Alone at the drive through the area, you should settle time and occasionally stop to take photos. There are signposted photo points. The ride to the top of the cable car is a matter of taste but make. Is not exactly cheap, but it's worth it. The view is great. But don't forget the jacket. At the Summit, it is much colder and windier than down on the island. You should bring the time for the ride upward.

  • If you would like to feel like Matt Damon in The Martian, then this place is for you! Incredible lava rock formations, green sand, the highest peak in Spain and probably some of the best pictures you'll take in a unique and out-of-this-world environment! Weather changes quickly so make sure to be prepared. The views are incredible! Lots of hiking for all levels and you are amazed at every turn with just how awesome nature can be!
  • Visited as part of a short cycling holiday to Tenerife. Professional cycling teams use Teide as a training ground because they can stay at altitude and train on the coast. Plus, the 2300m climb at an average 7% gradient is one of the most consistent, demanding climbs in Europe. Combine this with the breathtaking displays of power from this active volcano, consisting of ancient and modern lava flows and basalt fields - it feels entirely alien and utterly wonderful. Put this one on your bucket list.
  • Amazing view. We didn't take the cable ride to the highest point possible though as we were told you could wait for at least an hour to go up. But the view from just driving along the area is already breathtaking.
  • Great place, real fun to get there by car. Remember to take some warmer clothes as there can be windy on top. Also sometimes the elevator at top Is closed😢
  • Awesome! Higly recommend to get there early to find a parking spot! Be prepared with heavy clothes and mountain shoes! A lot of paths available, easy ti follow, all with amazing views! Most of them starts from visitor centers such as Canada Blanca!
