Live a unique experience by climbing up to the top of Mount Teide, the highest peak in Spain, on the Teide cable car. The views of the volcanic landscape from the summit are breathtaking!
Teide Cable Car
The Mount Teide cable car leads visitors from the base of the volcano to La Rambleta station, situated at 3,555 meters above sea level. The full journey takes approximately 10 minutes and the cabin fits up to 44 passengers.
La Rambleta lookout point offers incredible panoramic views of the Teide National Park and its surroundings. On clear days, you can even see the other islands of the Canarian archipelago. It is also possible to hike right up to the summit of Mount Teide from La Rambleta.
When you book your cable car ticket, you can also book it with an audioguide, to really make the most of your experience. You'll find out the secrets about the highest peak in Spain and you'll find out about the impressive history of this volcano.
- Although it does not happen very often, sometimes visitors can get altitude sickness due to the low levels of oxygen at the top of Mount Teide. If it happens, move slowly until you get used to the height.
- We recommend you bring a bottle of mineral water, since there are no food or drink stands at La Rambleta.
- Although Tenerife has a mild climate, we recommend you bring something warm to wear, as it can get cold at the summit of Mount Teide.
Who can ride the cable car?
- The minimum age to ride the cable car is 4 years old.
- This activity is not recommended for pregnant women due to the speed and height of the cabins, we may present a risk.
