Teide Cable Car


A visit to the largest national park in the Canary Islands will allow you to contemplate a volcanic landscape of unrivalled beauty Daybreak and sunset are moments of great beauty in the park and when night falls it becomes one of the best places on the planet to stargaze.

The changing seasons offer indescribable spectacles, with explosions of colour from Teide white broom or Teide bugloss in springtime and the snows that cover the volcano in winter.

The upper station of Teide Cable Car is the point of departure for three interesting trails for hiking enthusiasts:

Pico Viejo and La Fortaleza provide spectacular views of the south and north of the island, respectively.
The ascent to the peak leads to the highest point of the volcano at an altitude of 3,718 m, the tallest peak in Spain.

To visit the peak you must apply for a permit at www.reservasparquesnacionales.es

Teide Cable Car is located within a protected national park and therefore we must follow a series of basic rules of civic behaviour and respect of the natural environment, such as not littering or taking rocks, plants or animals. It is prohibited to make fires, loud noises or to camp.

When visiting the volcano we recommend using appropriate clothes and footwear which will allow you to walk on rocky terrain and protect you from changes in temperature.

You should be prepared for extremes in weather, both heat as well as cold, depending on the time of year.

The trails are the best way to move around the volcano and you should stay on them. Of the three routes, #10, #11 and #12, only #10, leading to Teide Peak, requires a free permit from Teide National Park’s administration, which can be requested on-line at www.reservasparquesnacionales.es. Remember that this permit must be applied for with enough time before your visit, so if you wish to visit the peak the first thing you should do is make sure there are available reservations.


● Wear warm clothing and proper footwear.
● Protect yourself from sunstroke.
● Due to the elevated luminosity, wear sunglasses.
● Take plenty of water on hikes.
● People with health problems should consult with their doctors before undertaking this hike.
● This activity is not recommended for people with breathing or heart problems or pregnant women.
