Teide National Park (Parque Nacional del Teide)

Teide National Park, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The Basics

Taking the cable car to the top of Mount Teide, the world’s third-highest volcano from its base, is one of the most popular pastimes in Teide National Park, with views spanning the surrounding islands. Visitors can choose from half-day, full-day, or evening tours of the park, which typically cover points of interest such as Pico Viejo volcano, Los Roques de Garcia rock formations, and Llano de Ucanca. Visits to the park can also be combined with tours of the Masca Valley or Puerto de la Cruz.

Private tour Teide National Park and La Laguna
We had a lovely day with Basso! He gave us lots of information about the many places we visited, introduced us to the hidden gems of Tenerife, as well as the must-see places, and made our day fun and educational. We had plenty of time at each stop, and enough stops to admire the beauty of the island

Excellent tour provided by get holiday with detailed information provided by a friendly and customer focused guide. Being in a small group you received personal attention and confortable travel in a minibus. Would highly recommend this tour. Gerard and Wilhelmina. N Ireland.

Teide National Park Half Day Tour
The trip was well planned, had great stops along the way to sample local food and drinks, and was able to get off for photos numerous times. The bus was well air conditioned and pick up from the airport was perfect. We didn’t book the cable car but was given the option upon arrival for an additional fee. Happy we did. The view at the top was stunning. Be aware it’s cold and windy at the top so definitely pack an extra jacket or layers. The drive up was stunning as well. Viator kept in touch and responded to and emails immediately. Highly recommend

Teide National Park Half Day Trip
Very good guide and pick up arrangements with guides. Be aware that optional cable car tickets are not included and in busy high season may be unobtainable. This should be more clear.

Booked online and they rang the next day to confirm. Coach on time. Tour operator knew his stuff and we had a few stop offs for photos. Steady driver made a good trip. Unfortunately the winds were high so cable car was not operating.

Teide National Park Half Day Trip
Great tour with very good amount of time at the top of Mount Teide to enjoy the really stunning views and eat your lunch above the clouds. Last stop at the souvenir shop was a bit unnecessary and I would rather have had more time at Los Roques de Garcia area which was very interesting with lots to see. Lots of pick ups/drop offs at hotels but it was a coach tour so to be expected I guess.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Teide National Park is a must-see for adventure travelers and photographers.

  • Summiting Mount Teide requires a permit; apply in advance to avoid disappointment.

  • Tickets for the cable car tend to sell out quickly, so be sure to book ahead of time.

  • Don’t forget to bring sun protection and plenty of water; the climate here is hot and dry throughout the year.

  • Dress in layers, as temperatures at the peak are often much cooler than at the base.

  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
