Snap photos of the island from above as you explore Spain's highest peak. You'll also have the opportunity to ride the cable car up to the summit of Mount Teide at your own expense.Description
Begin this half-day tour when your guide picks you up from your South Tenerife hotel at 9am. Have your camera handy as you drive through the unforgettable Teide National Park. One of the 12 "Wonders of Spain," Teide National Park is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Take in the spectacular landscapes that unfold as you ascend above the clouds to an elevation of more than 6,500 feet (2,000 meters).
As you begin the ascent up Mount Teide, pass through local villages and beautiful pine forests before reaching the unforgettable plateau with its moon-like landscapes. You might recognize the unique area from films like Planet of the Apes
and–more recently–the Clash of the Titans
and Wrath of the Titans
. Admire the rugged volcanic landscapes of Las Cañadas del Teide, snap a photo at the Roques de Garcia rock formations, and hear from your guide how these incredible geological areas were formed over millennia.
Once you reach the summit of Mount Teide, take the opportunity to ride the cable car all the way up at your own expense, or simply explore on foot as you marvel at the beautiful views of the island of Tenerife from above.
