Beautiful area, the cable car is worth doing. We walked back down which was a lovely walk but very tiring, steep and had loose rocks or gravel in places so not suitable for everyone. The visitor centre was informative with lovely staff. The rock formations and various view points along the road through the park are worth stopping at. It is well worth spending a full day exploring the national park.

Very nice and interesting to see. There’s a cable car that from National Park takes you to the top but doesn’t work on windy days. Cafeteria/ restaurant at “base camp”

Teide National Park is one of the main attractions of Tenerife island. It is located in the Central-Northen part of the island and easily accessible both by car and by bus. The entrance is fee, but if you want to go with the cable car on Teide Peak, the ticket is around 38 euros for a return trip. The Park is enormous and has Mars like landscapes and lots of trekking routes. There is also a dedicated bus line going around the Park. The temperatures are lower than on the rest of the island, especialy on Teide, so I would recommend to dress acordingly.

During our trip to Pico de Teide, we was driving through Teide National Park. If we had more time, we would have explored this beautiful place more. Very nice landscape.

Absolutely stunning. The views from Teide Volcano where breathtaking, even if it was cloudy. The cable car must be booked in advance and is expensive but totally worth every penny. Wrap up warm though as it averages 5C up there. Definitely the best thing to do in Tenerife

We ventured here with a picnic on Christmas Day. Very quiet and was nice to just be away from civilisation. Plenty of parking along the way on the roads and lots of information boards. Second time we've been here but was better this time because of how quiet it was.

Do not get caught into paying a lot of money to spend a day in this exceptional landscape. You can do it for free!
We brought a picnic along and started at the visitor center, taking a loop walk up to the track that leads straight up to Montana Blanca. From here the path leading up to the peak is clearly marked.
Along the way there are plants of every sort , as well as the giant lava eggs called 'huevos' that really give an impression of what a vulcanic explosion can be like.
When back on the track it is possible to turn left towards Fortaleza (a giant rock-likewall) and then back to the visitor center. The whole walk can be done in five to six hours including photos and short pauses. Does not involve excessive climbing but the temperature does drop at the end of the day

Great walk around giant lava creations. Start early at the visitor center car park. (It will get full before noon.) Walk anti clock wise so you get sun shine all the way around . Cold mornings so get dressed properly. Walking shoes recommended. Uneven surfaces and some climbing. The air is thin so you need to be fit. Takes approx 60-90 minutes with lots of photo breaks. Bring water and energy.

excellent areas for hiking in many locations in the park - I did several different hikes and climbs (Los Roques, Guajara Mountain, El Portillo and the lava fields). All different and all selected as intermediate

We took a chance with the weather and got lucky for our 62 mile circuit from Puerto de Santiago. Departing before 9 AM, the roads were quiet for the climb into the Corona Forestal Nature Park with the sun peaking through the tall pines. Reaching the open highway of the Teide National Park, we made excellent time to the first viewpoints of the Roques de García with the snow covered 12,198’ Mt. Teide in the background. The parking spots were already beginning to fill at the Roques walking trails just across the 37 room Parador de Cañadas del Teide. We drove up to the Teleférico del Teide which was closed, then to the Sendero de Montaña Blanca viewpoint where the parking lot had a bit of snow/ice. Returning, we passed a constant stream of cars and tour busses coming up from the south highway (TF 21), so we were happy to turn back on the quieter TF 38 with a photo stop at the Mirador de las Narices to see its 1798 vent and black lava field. The misting rains accompanied our descent back through the forest until we had clear views of the villages and La Gomera with the blue ocean.
