Teide National Park Tours

Teide National Park
The largest and oldest national park in the Canary Islands and home to Spain’s highest peak, Mount Teide, Teide National Park is one of the top attractions on Tenerife. The rugged landscape of the park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is magnificent—a geological wonder featuring an expanse of rugged lava fields, ancient calderas, and volcanic peaks. 

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 among 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 be combined with tours of the Masca Valley or Puerto de la Cruz.

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.

How to Get There
The nearest airport to Teide National Park is Tenerife Sur, just over an hour’s drive from the bottom cable car station. Once-daily buses run from Costa Adeje and Puerto de la Cruz, but most travelers find it more convenient to drive or join a guided tour.

When to Get There
Most Teide National Park visitors come in the morning hours. If you want to avoid the crowds, plan to visit a couple hours before sunset, when most day-trippers have left. Year-round sunshine means there’s no bad season to visit.

Hiking in Teide National Park
Hikers will find some 30 well-marked trails to choose from within this Canary Islands park. A 2-hour loop takes visitors around the bizarre Los Roques de Garcia rock formations, while shorter hikes lead to the La Fortaleza and Pico Viejo vantage points.
