Mt. Teide Cable Car
Cable car services up to La Rambleta run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., unless bad weather or high winds make the service impossible. Restrictive measures have currently been established, and access from the Terminal to the highest point of the summit is NOT allowed without a special permit. Access is open to La Fortaleza and Pico Viejo lookout spots.
The Telesforo Bravo Trail is the only path that visitors are allowed to take to Pico del Teide and its use requires prior authorisation. In addition, visitors are not permitted to leave the trail at any time. In order to use the Telesforo Bravo Trail visitors must apply for an access permit from the Administration of the National Park. The permit can be obtained in the following way:
Via Internet on the Reservation web page provided by the Autonomous Organisation of National Parks:
- Permits can be applied for until 2 PM of the day prior to which visitors wish to use the trail.
- In any case, obtaining the permit depends on availability.
There is no access to the crater under any circumstances. The other two trails that leave from La Rambleta - to the lookout spots of Pico Viejo and La Fortaleza - can be used freely. These offer excellent views of Las Cañadas, Tenerife and the other islands.
The cable car station has a bar and restaurant - buffet.
