Guided hiking tour to Pico del Teide (3,715m / 12198ft) on the Montaña Blanca trail. This route starts at an altitude of 2,350 metres / 7709ft, on the road that crosses the National Park and climbs up to the highest peak in Spain, passing the Altavista Refuge and the upper station of the Teide Cable Car.

During the walk we can enjoy the magnificent landscapes with the pumice stone fields from the eruption of Montaña Blanca and the black lava from the last eruption of Teide, of which the so-called Huevos del Teide (Teide Eggs) are also part.

The botanical attractions of the route will allow us to observe, among others, endemic species such as the tajinaste picante, the Teide violet, the Teide daisy and the Teide broom.

We will learn about the work of ancient trades, sulphur diggers, and the stories of ancient scientific and discovery expeditions that travelled the route before us.

We will have the Permission to climb from La Rambleta (3.555m / 11646ft) to the Pico del Teide from where we will enjoy 360º panoramic views of 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.

We descend to La Rambleta and take the Teide cable car down (downhill ticket included) and finish the excursion by returning to our vehicle.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to book myself the Permit for the Peak of Teide?

No. We take care of the Peak of Teide permit for you. To request the Permit it is necessary that when making the reservation you provide information of all the participants (names, surnames and ID or Passports).

Each person must bring their personal identification document on the excursion day. Access to the Peak of Teide is regulated to preserve this highly fragile place, also for security reasons and to offer a quality experience avoiding crowds. Therefore, only 200 permits are issued for each day.

The permit is free and valid for 2 hours. Depending on te availability, we will book the time slot that best suits our excursion, normally from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. 

What happens if we can't make the descent by cable car?

We must descend walking

If the Teide Cable Car closes on the day of our hike, preventing us from going down by Cable Car, our guide will inform you about the closure and the necessity to walk down .

We will give you the opportunity continue the hike and reach the top, if the safety, physical preparation and equipment conditions allow it, but then we will have to walk down the same path that we have climbed. This decision increases the difficulty and duration of the excursion, increasing the distance by about 8 kilometers and 1,200 meters of elevation gain, all downhill, leaving the excursion at approximately 18km of distance, +1,400m ascent and -1,400m descent. If you are prepared for this increase, you decide to face the challenge and our guide assesses that it is possible to do it safely, we will make the ascent to the Peak of Teide and the descent on foot. The budget provided for the descent by cable car will cover the costs of extending the excursion time, so the part corresponding to the descent by cable car will not be refunded.

You can also decide not to continue ascending and to turn back, going down the same path that you have walked up to that moment, always under the safety criteria established by our guide. In this case, we will proceed to refund the cable car descent ticket, but the rest will not be refunded once the excursion has started.

Typically, the Teide Cable Car takes the decision to open or close between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and we are already on our way up to the Peak of Teide. We will notify you of the closure as soon as possibile.
