Teide Mountain Hiking


Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the scenery at the top of Mount Teide.

Teide Cable Car & Hiking

Ride the cable car up Spain’s highest peak and witness the spectacular landscape down below. From the upper station, 3,555m above sea level, the sights include the volcanic Las Cañadas cliffs as well as the kettle-like caldera caused by a volcanic eruption. You also get a clear view of the peculiar Roque Cinchado rock formation, possibly the most photographed rock in the world!

From the cable car station we continue on foot for approximately 45 minutes. The horizontal routes Ruta Mirador de la Fortaleza (number 11) and Ruta Pico Viejo (number 12) pass through different coloured rock and lava formations leading to scenic viewpoints that can be reached within thirty minutes.


  • We pick up our adventurers from the hotel and take them to Teide National Park. From there we get the cable car to the base station and then continue on foot along the hiking trail.
  • The adventurers are rewarded with a lunch/picnic at the end of the hike.
