  • The Teide is must-see, then make the tails of the cable car is personal choice. A tip, if you are going to use the cable car make the reservation by internet, also that day look doing air, when it does not work. If you are staying in the North (Santa Cruz, for example) upload by La Esperanza and la Orotava-down, I this time have done so and I thought it was a perfect travel. We've had a spectacular day and the views of the Valle de la Orotava were splendid

  • Teide in Tenerife all roads. We took a car and went there for a walk. In this place you need to visit! It is very beautiful! Stunning scenery, changing every five minutes. True to the top of the cable car climb steel not there such huge queues, and admit I'm a little afraid of heights and TSD scares me. They say there's good, but even just drive to these places is an unforgettable experience!

  • We spent a day driving up and around the landsca[es but to really get the full benefit you need to walk which not all our party could do. We wanted to go up the cable car but it was so busy it wasn't ...  more »

  • A must see for tourists. I would recommend to rent a car and drive up there yourself. You will find nice spots to stop on your way over there to take beautiful pictures of the surrounding. When you reach almost the top you would see a beautiful lava created landscape.
  • Check Spanish highest mountain ( 3718m), Unesco World Heritage site. Surroundings are awesome and you can hike around. The drive to the park is nice too. We went to the park in the morning and then we went to the "Acantilado de los gigantes". The views of the cliffs are breathtaking.
  • Tenerife's national park. A must see to see how land is created on this wonderful planet of ours. Cable car trip does not reach the summit and to do so, you need to obtain permits well in advance. Views amazing including neighbouring islands and the African coast. Look out for the lizards!
  • DO's - Take protective clothing and shoes however sunny the weather is. It gets cold quickly on the top. The view is fantastic and if you can ten the rest of summit you will enjoy the view. Smell of the chemical (Sulphur) is still around on the top. A different type of soil and stone and some fantastic views of the island. Do it if you have a day to spare when you are in Tenerife.
  • Beautifull nature. Peacefull place to be. Beautifull sunset
