6-hour Teide National Park tour in Tenerife with an expert guide
Visit the mountain village of Vilaflor and explore Los Roques de García within the park, if pickup from south Tenerife

Drink in views of Las Cañadas Caldera and Tenerife during an optional cable car ride
At your north or south Tenerife hotel, you’ll board an air-conditioned coach destined for the UNESCO-listed Mt Teide National Park. Receive an introduction to the area from your guide and, depending on your pickup location, follow one of two itineraries detailed below. Departing from south Tenerife: Guests staying in hotels in Los Cristianos or Costa Adeje, stop first at Vilaflor — a picturesque mountain village — to refresh with drinks and snacks at your own expense. Continue inside the magnificent national park to Los Roques de García, home to the world-renowned red rock, Roque Cinchado, to capture photographs of the magnificent lunar landscapes. At your own expense, you’ll revitalize with lunch at Parador de Cañadas del Teide — a hotel, located in the Cañadas del Teide crater, that boasts impressive views of Mt Teide and the Pico Vieja crater. Sated, opt to explore the rugged sculptures of Los Cristianos or Costa Adeje at leisure, or take a cable car ride to Mt Teide’s summit at your own expense. At a time prearranged with your guide, return to your coach and relax during the journey back to your south Tenerife hotel. Departing from north Tenerife: If your hotel is located on Tenerife’s north side, travel through the La Orotava Valley (Valle de la Orotava), a lush region replete with dramatic gullies and cliffs. Gaze at the dramatic mound of Mt Teide as you explore the region’s luscious landscapes with your guide. After marveling at enormous Canary Island pines, you’ll venture to the heart of Mount Teide National Park for a comprehensive tour. Alternatively opt to ride a cable car to the volcano’s summit at your own expense. After thorough exploration of the park, relax during the air-conditioned drive back to your north Tenerife hotel.
It was a 2 hour travel up to the mountain.. to lower station. On the day, weather wasnt great , so the cable car was closed. Nor there was any observatory to watch. we took photos in the 10 minutes when bus stopped and came back on another 2 hour drive through the mountains on the other coast. The views were good while coming down. People who have altitude sickness should think twice and also kids get very bored.
I was not very happy with this tour, because we had already been to the national park from the south the previous week, and I had booked this particularly because there should have been time available to go up on the cable car. When I phoned the office 3 days before to confirm, I asked whether I could buy tickets in advance and was told no, because the cable car might not be running due to bad weather, but I could buy tickets on the bus. Well, we turned up all kitted up for cold weather, got on the bus, and asked the courier, Juan Carlos, if we could buy the tickets. Then he said, oh no, this tour doesn't do the cable car, you need to take a different one which we could have, had we been told. So although the tour is good, if you have not done the park before, we were very disappointed. La Oratava is interesting but done before, except for the belen. So I would recommend it, but don't think you will be able to go up in the cable car!
The views in Teide were stunning. The tour guide called Marten was great also. Just because the schedule was too tight I think I don't have enough time to stay at the teide mountain. maybe it would be better if i have joined a full day trip
Sehr gut geführte Tour mit kompetentem Reiseleiter, der über die gesamte Hin- und Rückfahrt die Besonderheiten interessant und unterhaltsam erklärt. Wer möchte, hat die Möglichkeit, mit der Seilbahn zur Teide-Bergstation zu fahren. Die Tickets dafür kann man während der Busfahrt erwerben, so dass an der Seilbahnstation keine Wartezeit entsteht. Aufgrund der Einzigartigkeit dieser Vulkanlandschaft ist diese Tour absolut zu empfehlen. Bei der Seilbahnfahrt sollte man darauf gefasst sein, dass naturgemäß die Besucher sehr zahlreich sind. Oben an der Bergstation ist der Aufenthalt zeitlich etwas begrenzt, was aber durch die Gesamtzeit der Halbtagestour bedingt ist. Aber da die Temperaturen auf dieser Höhe ohnehin nur wenig über dem Gefrierpunkt liegen, ist eine knappe halbe Stunde Aufenthalt die Seilbahn fährt alle 10 min völlig ausreichend, um den Teide-Gipfel und die Kraterlandschaft bestaunen zu können. Geeignetes Schuhwerk, passende Klamotten und einigermaßen Trittsicherheit sind Voraussetzung - Touristen mit Badelatschen und glatten Pumps sind dort oben fehl am Platz. Ein weiteres Highlight sind die bizarren Felsformationen von Los Roques, die unweit von der Seilbahnstation auf der Rückfahrt für einen Foto-Halt angesteuert werden. Zurück geht es über eine nordwestlich führende Route, die noch einmal spannende Eindrücke der Vulkanlandschaft bietet.
