Teide Cable Car, in Teide National Park, is a great trip to Spain’s highest volcano. Live the experience of gliding over a geological gem where volcanoes, craters and lava flows form an impressive palette of colours and volcanic shapes you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
The Cable car works from 9 a.m. to 16:00 p.m., unless bad weather or high winds make the service impossible. Restrictive measures have currently been established, and access from the Terminal to the highest point of the summit is NOT allowed without a special permit.
In order to use the “Telesforo Bravo” trail from La Rambleta or Cable Car Terminal (3550 m) to the summit of Mt. Teide (3718 m), you first have to apply for a permit given exclusively through the web www.reservasparquesnacionales.es .
The other two trails that leave from La Rambleta – to the lookout spots of Pico Viejo and La Fortaleza – can be used freely. These offer excellent views of Las Cañadas, Tenerife and the other islands.
