FORGET WAITING IN LINE! To access the Pico del Teide Cable Car, you can purchase your tickets here; no waiting, no fuss, and at the same price as the ticket office.
The cable car ascends to the Rambleta Terminal Station starting at 9 a.m. until the last ascent at 4 p.m., with the last ride down at 17 p.m.
From the Rambleta (3.550m.) two paths depart towards Pico Viejo and La Fortaleza, offering excellent views of Las Canadas, Tenerife Island, and the other islands.
Remember to bring warm clothing and suitable footwear.
