This tour allows you to climb up to the Peak of Mount Teide (3,715m / 12,190ft) by the shortest and easiest path, only 1,3km / 0,8mi round trip, using the cable car to start the hike from La Rambleta (3,550m / 11,650ft).

Our guide will meet you at the Teide Cable Car base station. You can reach this point by car or by requesting our transport service. We start this excursion taking the cable car to ascend from the main road (2,350m above sea level) until La Rambleta.

The cable car ascends in less than 10 minutes the 1,200 metres / 4,000ft from the lower to the upper station. The magnificent views over Teide Caldera will be complemented by our commentary on the Teide National Park, protected since 1954.

Once at La Rambleta, we head to Telesforo Bravo trail that leads to the summit of Teide. The rangers will check our Peak of Teide Permit, that we will provide for you. Only 200 people a day can access the top of Teide, this allows us to offer an uncrowded, safe and quality visit, and helps to preserve its natural values with our cooperation as visitors. The beauty, conservation and uniqueness of this National Park have also well deserved the protection as UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007.

The Telesforo Bravo trail, named after a local geologist, zigzags up the steep slope over the lavas of the last eruption of Teide, that took place 1,100 years ago. A short route that requires from you to be fit enough, well equipped and not to suffer from any type of cardiovascular ailment.

During the walk we will make several stops to appreciate the grandiose landscape, catch our breath and discover the formation of Teide and some of the volcano best kept secrets: its sulphur fumaroles, its volcanic activity, the stories of the firsts expeditions, explorers, scientists and writers; a natural beacon for the ships that sail the Atlantic Ocean; considered by European travellers as the highest mountain in the world for a few centuries; and be amazed by the plants and animals that live at this height.

We edge the crater rim and reach the summit of Spain, the Pico del Teide (3,715m / 12,190ft), from where we enjoy 360º panoramic views over the whole island of Tenerife and several neighbouring islands that emerge between the blue of the sea and the sky and the white of the sea of clouds.

Time to immortalise the moment with some photos and enjoy the surroundings before starting our way down to La Rambleta, descend by Teide Cable Car to our vehicle and finish the excursion.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. Nosotros nos encargamos de solicitar el permiso para el Pico del Teide por ti. Para solicitar el Permiso es necesario que al hacer la reserva nos indiques ciertos datos de todas las personas que realicen la excursión (nombre, apellidos y DNI o Pasaporte).

Cada persona deberá llevar su identificación personal el día de la excursión. El acceso al Pico del Teide está regulado para preservar este lugar de gran fragilidad. También por motivos de seguridad y para ofrecer una experiencia de calidad evitando masificaciones. Por ello, sólo se expiden 200 permisos para cada día.

El permiso es gratuito y de 2 horas de duración. Reservaremos el tramo horario que mejor se adapte a nuestra excursión, normalmente de 09:00 a 11:00h, o en el que queden plazas disponibles.

No, no te lo recomendamos. La gran demanda de plazas para subir en Teleférico genera que no suelan quedar plazas el día de la excursión, incluso desde varios días antes de la actividad. Además, se requiere realizar la reserva a través de internet y hacerlo el último día puede generar una gran incertidumbre. Te aconsejamos realizar la reserva con antelación y dejar el trámite en nuestras manos para recibir la mejor asistencia, coordinación y garantía de servicio.

No. La reserva del Permiso y la del Teleférico son dos reservas distintas y una no da derecho a usar la otra. Si quieres que tu actividad sea un éxito, deja las reservas y la coordinación en nuestras manos y sigue nuestros consejos, somos expertos en esta actividad.

Los guías oficiales que disponemos de la acreditación del Parque Nacional del Teide, como nosotros, contamos con Permisos de Guía. Cada día tenemos algunas plazas reservadas para ofrecer a nuestros clientes. El requisito para su uso es que el guía debe acompañar al grupo, por lo que no es posible enviar a los clientes solos. Aprovecha esta oportunidad de subir hasta el Pico del Teide con nosotros, te ofrecemos la organización, la seguridad, la interpretación de este paraje único y le damos valor y calidad a tu visita.

. Nuestra labor consiste en organizar y hacer posible tu excursión con aquello que te falte y guiarte hasta el Pico con toda seguridad. Dinos qué tienes reservado y qué necesitas, o déjate aconsejar por nosotros.

  • Si tienes el billete de Teleférico y te falta el Permiso y el Guía, cuenta con nosotros.

  • Si tienes el Permiso, pero te falta el Guía y el Teleférico, nosotros nos encargamos.

  • Si tienes el billete de Teleférico y el Permiso, pero te gustaría contar con un Guía, aquí nos tienes.

. Si vas a subir caminando, indícanos qué día y a qué hora y te encontraremos en el control de acceso de La Rambleta con el Permiso para acceder al Pico del Teide.

No es necesario usar el Teleférico para subir y/o bajar, si deseas hacer sólo la subida en Teleférico y bajar a pie o subir a pie y bajar en Teleférico, también es posible. Te ayudamos a organizarlo y te guiamos si quieres.

No. El Permiso de Acceso al Pico del Teide no se puede cambiar de fecha si el Teleférico cierra y te ofrecen usar el billete al día siguiente o varios días después. Necesitas sacar un nuevo Permiso de Acceso al Pico del Teide para el día que te interese y que el Teleférico funcione o subir a pie.
