Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Amazing place. I love this place. Has great energy. Be sure to take a trip by cable car to the very top. The views are truly spectacular! At cable car 🚠 pick there is nice cafe. The views and roads are stunning, looks like mars. Can get bit chilly at the very top so take a top. Watch the sun too, it will bake you.
The moon, Mars and Venus all in one place. Being here feels nothing short of otherworldly. Go to one of the many visitors centers to get a deeper understanding and a higher appreciation of the geological formations you can find here. With the last eruption being about a hundred years ago, you get a real feeling of how you're living on a planet that is alive, dynamic and changing. Easy access by car, just an hour from the coast.
Be prepared for a long journey if you’ve booked through travel rep. Amazing scenery almost as if you’ve arrived on another planet! We had several stops on way up, as journey was long this was the only toilet break!! But you can get food and drink at this stop. When we got to the last stop scene was incredible, we were given glass of Cava and blanket if you needed one and we watched the sun go down. You could not see the land below as we were above the clouds. Magical! Then went and had dinner which was laid on and really good food, then onto the star gazing, clear sky no lights to spoil seeing the stars! And the guide Fernando (yes,) was wonderful. Great experience despite the fact nearly 9-10 hr round trip.
This rightly protected park is beautiful on so many levels. Whilst Teide has to be the star attraction, the landscape, flora and fauna are amazing in their own right. You must make this part of your holiday.
The best experience of my life. Beautiful place which definitely worth the money spent. If you won't be lucky and get the permit to go on the top of Teide, make sure to go at least at the end of the cable car. And if you will be walking on the top, make sure to have enough water (4-5 liters of water per person is not too much), proper walking boots and warm clothes for when you reach the top.
