#1 of 36 in Nature in Tenerife
Climb to Spain’s highest peak at Volcan El Teide. Sitting at an altitude of 3,718 meters (12,198 feet), the volcano and its surroundings make up the 18,900-hectare (46,720-acre) Teide National Park: a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most visited wonder in Spain. Hike the dry lava terrain of the volcano and enjoy sprawling views of the Tenerife shoreline before winding back down through the scenic park. While the summit is accessible by bus, it’s best to bring a car to take advantage of the many hiking options and viewpoints.

  • The volcano should definitely be included in travel plans! Of course, the weather affects the aikapitkälti experience. On the way up kiemuraista in good condition of the road is asphalt-covered shunting areas a few small café and more views of the place as well as a few worthwhile stop if you want to snip pictures of stunning scenery and wildlife, geology and cultural history. Please note that actually came to the top of the mountain (or 200 m to the end of it) the cable lift you should definitely buy your tickets in advance, tickets will be reserved for a specific prior to Mount Teide, the redirection of time in which the elevator takes you up (every ten minutes). If you leave the ticket purchasing to the destination be prepared for the fact that the waiting time is going to be a long one and there may be tickets are non-refundable. If you have purchased a ticket in advance, for example the period at 10.20 directory as this in the past you in the elevator, but if you are afraid that what then if you miss this time of that, so the following the rise of the time ticket Yes valid (not necessarily the number of hours myöhäisempiin). And then if you want to get there just came to the top of the mountain, so it must apply in advance for permission. That is, it should be already well before the departure of the reisuun from Finland. Simply you can find easily what it is all about and how it is done. (in fact we do not permit applied for, or that we just wire the lift so the top what it was) I would probably have given 5 points if you would come to the top of the motion sought a permit but ...

  • On Teide, really is a great feeling. You can take many walks. There are so many different views. The cable car is somewhat expensive, but a rise would take much too long. Please keep in mind: the difference is enormous and or others ever get problems with the air.

  • We took advantage to make the visit in excursion, very convenient because if like me you are prone to dizzy, because drivers are used to driving and this is especially important if you end up the road to Masca particularly impressive but magnificent. The plateau of the Teide is located at 2100 metres above sea level. The film 1 million years before Jésus Christ there was shot in 1966. The landscapes are really different from the slopes of the Piton of the furnace or the Mount Pelée. This visit is a must in Tenerife.
