Hike to Spain´s highest summit – a must do on Tenerife!

This hiking tour starts on the road through the National Park in direction El Portillo at a level of 2 300 m. On the track which leads to the refuge your pass the “White Mountain” Montaña Blanca with the Teide eggs. The first part is not that steep and you walk over pumice and lava gravel. After round about 1,5 h the trail climbs steeper and you will reach your lunch break at the hut Refugio de Altavista. The further part is strenous over solidified lava flows and rocks to the mountain station of the cable car. You are able to reach the Teide summit only with a special permit, which will be organized by us. The views are amazing and with a bit of luck you will see the neighbour islands El Hierro, La Gomera, La Palma and Gran Canaria. After many photos and a rest on the peak you will take the cable car which brings you back down to the parking and starting level.
