  • We didn't believe our eyes when, leaving the coast South East of the island, climbing into very winding roads leading to the Teide, the surrounding vegetation changed progressively from arid low bushes to that of classical undergrowth with lush grass and abundant vegetation and green, to finish within a real dense forest, softwood trees. The islanders say that in Tenerife there 35 microclimates. I thought exaggerated. Instead I think I have met almost all!!! Recommend a rental car to be free to roam without bond stopping at the many viewpoints. The roads are perfectly maintained, broad and very easy to percorrre. Fantastic.

  • Always impressed by the varied and stunning landscapes here, take something warm to wear can get chilly at times, also worth a visit at night for star gazing  more »
  • The directions from the South via Vila Flor is already pretty. We were gorgeous on a sunny March Sunday here! After passing through the Boca de Tauce do I get at the caldera measured 17 km in diameter and goes through the Cañadas on the dream Street within the crater walls. Viewpoints are in important places. The views of the Pico de Teide and the Pico Viejo are impressive. You well understand how are spilled lava spurts of landscape. Several hiking trails can be committed. We agree: the Teide National Park a must if you are in Tenerife.

  • Really cool place! So many different kinds of terrain in one place, beautiful views, totally free. Although warm, it can get very windy, so bring a few layers. Unfortunately, the cable car was closed due to high winds on the day I went, and we didn't have time to do the hike from Montana Blanca, so we didn't quite get to the top. Small cafe, restrooms, gift shop, etc. at the lower station we're open, however. The available views depend on the weather (specifically the cloud cover), but after driving through the rain to reach the top, the view above the clouds was incredible!
  • What a beautiful landscape! It is so impressive up there! Definitely one of the most beautiful places on Tenerife! There are many trails for hiking and you can spend many hours there. Keep in mind to take some warm hoodies or jackets with you as it might be cooler up there and it might be (very) windy. I really recommend this place.
  • Good views, something you can't imagine. I've been to multiple volcanoes including Etna, but this was new for me. The views were good, and the rude was easy. The road was well made, and easily rideable. Would recommend
  • The most impressive place on earth. So wonderful. I could spend days there. There are hiking trails, fantastic rocks, restaurants, a cable car to the mountain top (almost the top, but with an astonishing view, the air is thin here, so don’t run). The weather can totally change within minutes. We had cold cloudy weather, temperature was 9°C, 15 minutes later sunshine and 22°C. Be prepared for everything!
  • Well worth visiting the national park during your visit. The cable car wasn't running during our trip but the drive up the mountain alone gave stunning views. Try to go up one side and down the other as the views are quite different.
