Detailed description

On foot on the highest mountain of Spain - guided hiking tour to the summit of the Teide on Tenerife

The Teide rises from the island landscape of Tenerife and for many visitors it is their greatest wish to climb this mountain to reward themselves with a majestic view over Tenerife, the volcanic landscape and the sea. It's like a bliss to stand up there! Experience your personal summit happiness and all the magic of this island volcano on a guided tour of the Teide. With the help of the cable car you can already overcome most of the altitude meters and are at 3550 meters at the beginning of this guided hiking tour on Tenerife. From the top station of the cable car, the last 170 metres up the mountain are done at a leisurely pace and in small groups (maximum 18 participants).

The path to the highest point of the Pico del Teide is described as easy and well accessible, but one should not underestimate the forces acting on the body when climbing at these altitudes. You will be rewarded for all these efforts with the breathtaking view that you can enjoy during the summit break. The unique landscape of Tenerife comes into its own from this perspective and will make your heart beat faster.

The Teide hike leads back over a high trail to the viewpoint Pico Viejo. Here you can look into the mighty crater of the second highest volcanic mountain on Tenerife after the Teide. After the descent with the cable car you can point your camera at the bizarre towers of Roques de Garcia. These impressive lava rocks together with the imposing "finger of God" form a fantastic panorama and are an absolute sight in Teide National Park. To protect this beautiful landscape, only 200 permits are issued daily for a summit hike to the Teide. The pass is included in this tour. On the way back from the Teide summit to the top station there is also the information centre of the national park administration. There you will learn more about the history of the Teide, about Vullcanism and life around the volcano.

Climbing the summit of the Teide is an unforgettable experience. And you can rely on your local guide for this guided Tenerife hike. A certain kicksiness and enough fitness for the final stage to the mountain top are the best prerequisites to master this easy Teide tour and to make yourself the greatest gift by conquering Spain's highest mountain.
