Hiking Teide with Cable Car


Hiking some of the more than 30 trails on Teide is an absolute must for anyone who loves nature.

The great variety and levels of difficulty make it easy for visitors to choose their ideal route.

The trails with the most spectacular vistas are on the summit of Mount Teide and they can be reached on foot or by taking a comfortable ride in the cable car. Without a doubt the most popular trail is the one leading to the volcano’s peak, but there are limits on how many people can visit that area of Teide.

We will provide official guides that will prepare you for the hike and accompany you along the route to explain the spectacular landscape.
