Our guide to Mount Teide Sunset Cable Car Ticket
Head to the stunning Teide National Park where you can board a cable car to the top of Teide Volcano which towers over the landscape at 3,718 metres and enjoy a stunning sunset.
As the car rises, the splendour of the landscape unfolds beneath your feet offering a unique perspective of Teide National Park.
The 8-minute journey to the top takes you over volcanoes, craters and lava flows which form an impressive array of shapes and colours that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
Once at the summit, head to one of the viewing points to enjoy the changing landscape as the Sun drops over the western horizon.
As it sets, Teide's enormous shadow stretches out toward the East, creating a spectacular projection and the rocks take on red and orange tones that are in perfect synchronisation with the volcanic terrain.
