This was our only planed trip on our holiday in Tenerife. It was an early start, but what a fantastic day. Our guide Alex was full of information. When you get to the volcano you think you are on the moon. The landscape is incredible. If you are on holiday on Tenerife this is the place you must go.

This is a one off experience Fantastic way to get up to 3,500 mtrs .The views(if Clear) are mind blowing with amazing vistas of the national park the coastline of Tenerife and other Canary islands in the distance.Can get very busy at peak times but well worth it.

We rented a car And drove up. Really nice drive, super views. Once you get there you can park for free. There's a cafe selling. Basic food and drinks and a nice viewing area. You can pay for a cable car to the top. It's a bit pricey but worth it. Dress warm if you want to go up. Plenty... More

There were only two cable cars but as we arrived at 10.30 we were able to just jump on without pre- booking.The day before the cars were cancelled due to wind. Views were great but you need winter woolies as it was freezing at the top. Surprisngly no wild life seen but views were extensive. We visited the nearby church... More

We are lying in the harbor of almarilla San Miguel and went by car doing the Teide ! Highest mountain of the Spanish islands and when you are on the top , it feels like a moon landscape with only Lava and the view over the ocean is overwhelming so if you are on this island you have to do... More

Drove to cable car base in hire car. Busy but managed to park. Spectacular views on journey as it was a lovely sunny day. Walked to cable car from parking ,bought tickets then had to wait 1 hr before able to go virtually to top of mountain. Amazing experience a must when in Tenerife. Walked round to experience fantastic views.

A must for ALL visitors to Tenerife....although the windy car/coach journey of 44km from Los Cristianos may put a few people off who have delicate constitutions.

The best way to reach Vulcan El Teide is to go by car and after- to use cable car to the top. I just try the cable car and did some walk, but I saw a lot of people climbing to the top. Of course you have to be experienced and in good health condition to do this difficult climbing.
