  • Most vitado of Europe, world biosphere reserve, simply wonderful landscapes and a few contrasts that are unmatched National Park. The landscapes seen in its entirety, the flora with endemic species exclusive to Teide violet, the broom, the blue chaffinch and lizards, are many of the attractions of this great national park, the largest by far of the Canary Island.

  • Landscape felt like we're on another planet! Lots of viewpoints and hiking trails. Plan all day, start early. 
  • On this our third trip to this National Park we walked on the plateau and also from the Caldera. On the previous visits we took the cable car up to the viewing platforms: fantastic views, Visited the ...  more »

  • 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!
