Detailed description

Take this tour by bus to the Teide in Tenerife and hop on a cable car to the very top (if you dare)

For all of those who don't want to miss out on the highest mountain in Spain during their holiday, the tour in Tenerife to the Teide is a "must". The price includes a pick up from various tourist resorts in the south and southwest of the Canary Island. The half-day excursion to the Teide National Park in Tenerife starts at around 9am. You slip through the small typical Spanish village of Vilaflor which is full of pine trees. Before you know it, you'll be super high up and able to admire the unique volcanic landscape and everything that surrounds it. You get to the Teide National Park at approx. 11am. If you're feeling brave or if heights don't phase you then the 200m-high cable car ride should certainly be on the cards. The journey going back down takes between 10 and 15 minutes. You get to spend around 30 minutes at the top in awe of the magic of the place. 

Climbing is unfortunately not possible on this half-day Teide Excursion in Tenerife due to the rules and the short time window. The ride in the cable car is highly dependent on weather conditions and can't be promised on those grounds. But even without a cable car ticket, the trip to Teide in Tenerife is worth doing, it's a tremendously peaceful experience full of stunning views and a closer look at nature. Spend an hour strolling around and feasting your eyes on the fabulous "Roques de Garcia" and the terrific Teide. If you fancy it, relax with a coffee and some snacks (not included in the price) or have a look around in one of the souvenir shops. The Teide trip in Tenerife carries on, going through Santiago del Teide and finishes arounf 2.00pm.


Valid on the reserved day or for 12 months after date of purchase if no date has been selected. You will receive the tour operator's details with the purchased ticket. Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.

A half-day excursion but highly recommended

We decided on this somewhat shorter excursion because we already had plans during the afternoon. The excursion was ideal for this reason and the park is a pass, a must if you go to Tenerife, so highly recommended.

Una excursión de solo medio día pero muy recomendable

Nosotros nos decidimos por esta excursión algo más corta porque ya teníamos planes durante la tarde. La excursión fué ideal por esta razón y el parque es una pasada, una visita obligada si vas a Tenerife, así que muy recomendable.

The Teide is a must-see on holiday in Tenerife. I would definitely book the cable car in advance, since the queue on the spot is very long and the seats are booked quickly.

Auf jeden Fall

Der Teide ist ein must-see im Urlaub auf Teneriffa. Ich würde die Seilbahn auf jeden Fall vorab dazubuchen, da die Warteschlange vor Ort sehr lange ist und die Plätze schnell ausgebucht sind.

Spectacular teide

It had to be postponed twice, once due to confusion with the collection point and once due to bad weather, a bit tedious. even so, the service they have given us has been very kind and efficient

The cable-car was top-notch

It went right over the top of the volcano and we say everything! It was a bit scary (because it’s rather high) but unmissable.

Totally unique

Unique looks, great experience, which I will never forget. I agree that you could have more time for the top;)

Total einmalig

Einmalige Blicke, tolles Erlebnis, was ich niemals vergessen werde. Ich schließe mich der Meinung an, dass man für oben mehr Zeit haben könnte ;)

a bit short

The time you have for the top is pretty close, otherwise, breathtaking.

etwas knapp

Die Zeit, die man für oben hat ist schon ziemlich knapp, ansonsten, atemberaubend.
