Teide: Just witnessed a place where the temperature drops from 15 degree to 1 degree within 10 mins, a highest point in Spain 3718m, in the Center of the peak & in the Crater of the Old Volcano. You feel like you are in another planet, formations of solid lava, multicoloured mountains of minerals I would call this as 'no... More

So beautiful well worth a visit we saw this from both directions absolutely stunning . You have to take the cable car trip but worth every euro to be that close to the top

Too bad for us, that tickets (permits) for the summit are sold out in weeks advance. We went here in January 2017 and wanted to walk down, of course we were prepared for a walk from 3555 m. We tried to buy tickets to the summit but they were sold out 2 months before our arrival, so be prepared.Unfortunately the... More

Very hot but beautiful views, buy your tickets as an all in one package including getting there and lift up to top otherwise can work out expensive. Nothing to see if you do not go up to the top of the volcano. The coach trip was good as we went all round to pick up and on the way back.... More

Fantastic views and amazing geology. Takes around 40 minutes by car to reach the cable car and a coat is advisable when you reach the summit.. The volcano has been growling lately but no signs of anything untoward when we visited. The closest thing to a lunar landscape I have seen. Well worth a half day trip.

Visited here recently and found it colder than we anticipated. We advise that you take a coat. The cafe was slightly overpriced which is expected for a tourist attraction. Unfortunately we missed out on the cable cars as we stopped for hot drinks.

This volcano and area is stunning. There are lots of walks and you can see Las Palmas and Gran Canaria. You have an out of this world experience and we also recommend the guided visit of the Teide observatory at the top which you must book in advance.

We drove there early but still need to wait about half an hour for a car park space close to the main attraction. Would spend more time there if the boy was feeling ok.

We had a recent coach trip to see Mount Teide which is an ancient extinct Vocano. It was helpful having a guide who could explain about the history and terrain. It was beautiful, majestic and the air was clear and clean making it a really invigorating trip. The landscape is so different on the north side of the mountain with... More

If you do nothing else during your visit to Tenerife then you really must make this trip. It's very busy so be patient whilst queuing as it's so worth it. The views are spectacular.... like being on a lunar landscape but looking down on it. Fantastic. No hesitation in recommending. Enjoy.
