"Tenerife,a trip up mount Teide..." Canary Islands Things to Do Tip by Linky_Pinky

Canary Islands Things to Do: 239 reviews and 214 photos

Tenerife,a trip up mount Teide a live volcano is a must. Excursions at about £24 per adult £13 per child (2002) The coach takes you to a Luna landscape from where you take the cable car to the top, not for the faint hearted, the ride is quite scary as you go over the pylons the car swings to and fro, also because of the altitude (12,199ft)(3718m) the air is a little thinner so take it easy, once of the cable car there?s a bit of a climb to the mouth of the volcano, to feel the heat and smell the sulphur. Phew! I stayed near the cable station and went in the small cafe for a hot chocolate with brandy in it, and sat and admired the view. Do bring a jacket or jumper it?s cold up here, and sunscreen as you also get burnt from the sun without realising it.
