You can spend 1 hour on the summit
  • Ride 1,200 meters up to the top of Mount Teide, an active volcano and UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Enjoy stunning views from your specially refurbished cable car as it completes its 8-minute journey
  • Discover exotic plants and animals, or call home from Spain's Highest Public Telephone!

Mount Teide doesn't just dominate the island of Tenerife, it's the highest point in all of Spain. Luckily, you don't have to climb to get to the top of this UNESCO World Heritage Site – the cable car will whisk you to the top in no time. There you can bask in the stunning views, admire the unique local wildlife, and even climb up to the very summit (permit necessary) before you eventually glide back down to earth.

Although it's a wildly popular tourist destination, Teide is still an active volcano (even if the last eruption was in 1909!). Its craggy landscapes are so out-of-this-world that NASA uses it to test scientific equipment and the latest robotic vehicles in preparation for exploring Mars!

Your cable car is a little slower than a space shuttle, but will still carry you an impressive 1,200 meters up in under 8 minutes. The recently refurbished cars offer breathtakingly panoramic views of the otherworldly surroundings as you glide up in near-silence.

At the upper station, you'll have plenty of time to explore and check out the local flora and fauna, many of which are completely unique to the island.

Be careful if you use this service. When I turned up at the entrance to the cable car with my granddaughter the ticket didn't show in my email (though I'd seen it and thought I'd saved it three days before). Not a problem as the ticket was printed by a friendly member of staff but it did add around twenty minutes to the process

Good trip
