Staying in Garachico we entered the park through La Ototava along a very twisting road (the locals don't have much patience with tourist drivers). Once in the park the roads improved. About a hour and a half to the visitors center (which was closed - under repair). We left to the SE TF 21 to TF 38 and the scenery... More

The Teide park is very worthwhile visiting, even if the cable car is not running to the top of the volcano. There are beautiful views, old lava flows, hikes around the ancient caldera.

We had made a reservation and went there early in the morning. No lines and good service. Later on when we came back down the lines were much longer. It was a cool experience but I would have preferred a beer and a snack on the top. And not just a soda from a vending machine.

The visitors center was very informative and user friendly. We used the English language hearphones to learn about the original inhabitants, the geography, flora and fauna, and the weather patterns. It was a truly enjoyable hour well spent.

A strangely beautiful park, even though much of the landscape is pretty desolate with little vegetation, except at lower altitudes, where there are lovely pines. We had a great private tour, so were able to stop at less busy spots for a wander to really experience the beauty of the volcanic rock layers and wonderful features. There were many tour... More

Please do go to the Teide National Park when you are in Tenerife. If you don't you are really missing out on the most crucial part of the Island. This is where it all started. This park has great hiking trails and at various levels. Unfortunately, we had SNOW 2 days prior to our hike there so, we were NOT... More

A hairy drive through the mountains until you reach the top but well worth the effort. Strange experience throwing snowballs while wearing shorts and tee shirt.

The cable car was down but it didn't diminish the beauty of the area. I highly recommend a private tour to learn all you can about what you are seeing and to get away from the huge tour buses and crowds.
