What you can expect

Scope out the volcanic wonders of Mount Teide, the highest peak in all of Spain. Trek to the height of 12,198 feet (3,718 m) above sea level, and upon reaching the summit, enjoy views of the mysterious crater and the Canary Islands in the distance.

From the Teide Cable Car base station, you have 1 of 2 options—set off on a guided hike immediately towards the summit or shorten your trek with a ride to the upper station at 11,663 feet (3,555 m), from where you'll embark on the remainder of the hike. No matter which option you choose, your adventure concludes with a cable car ride back down the mountain above its ancient craters and former lava flows.

From your choice of destination points, trek over craggy terrain as you hike the Telesforo Bravo route—the toughest trail on the mountain. Put your skills to the test as you climb the steep pathways, breathing in the unmistakable scent of sulphur as it wafts off the numerous fumaroles in the area.Upon reaching the summit, enjoy time to catch your breath as you gaze out over the clouds that hover above the island below.

From its narrow lip, look down into the yellow-green depths of the crater as your guide shares stories of the volcanic eruptions that have occurred over the last several centuries. Once you've had plenty of time to rest and take in the breathtaking views, hike back to the upper station where a cable car is waiting to take you back down the mountain.
