Description


Climbing Mount Teide Peak - Private Tour with Permits

Climbing Mount Teide Pealk on the private Mount Teide tour takes your hiking adventures to a whole new level. Think big: we start the hike at 2100m elevation and finish after 10km distance in the thin air at 3718m. How long the hike will take, depends largely on you, the duration can be anywhere between 3 and 6 hours.

The landscape is that of a high volcanic desert, life is quite sparse in this area, except May and June when the desert is in full bloom. Mount Teide is one of the biggest volcanoes in the world and it’s a unique experience to climb Mount Teide hiking from the volcano base.

Mount Teide summit or, as it called in Spanish - Pico del Teide reaches an altitude of 3718 meters above the sea level. So, it is also the most elevated point of Atlantic Ocean and the highest mountain in Spain and, obviously climbing Mount Teide is on the bucket list of experienced hikers and Mount Teide peak permit is required to the Pico del Teide.

On a good day, visibility from the summit can range up to 250 km, bringing each one of the Canary Islands insight. This route touches the Pico Viejo crater and runs along the western crest of the mountain, so there is a huge variety of views on the route of Mount Teide hike. Mount Teide hike is also the most challenging hike to do in Tenerife if you want to have a unique life long memory after visiting Tenerife.

If you are considering a Mount Teide tour to reach the Pico del Teide you must know that climbing Mount Teide requires the Mount Teide permit and it makes difference because most of the Teide tours are just sightseeing and not including hiking and even the most of hiking tours don’t including climb Mount Teide and Pico del Teide access permit. And that makes the Climbing Mount Teide Peak - Pico del Teide Private Tour unique, because of you are not just having absolutely private experience with professional and knowledgable licensed tour guide, but as a part of the trip to Mount Teide, you are granted with exclusive Teide permit allowing you to walk up to the Teide Peak!

Like the most of Mount Teide trips from Costa Adeje the Climbing Mount Teide peak - Pico del Teide Private Tour starts with picking you up directly from your hotel located anywhere along the coastal area from El Medano to Los Gigantes, so the Hotel Pick-Up and transportation is included if your hotel is located in any of the following resorts and towns:

- El Medano

- Golf del Sur

- Costa del Silencio

- Las Galletas

- Palm Mar

- Los Cristianos

- Playa de Las Americas

- Costa Adeje - La Caleta

- Playa Paraiso

- Callao Salvaje

- Abama

- Playa de San Juan

- Alacala

- Los Gigantes

Alternatively, if you have rented a car and want to explore more by yourself before or after the tour, we can meet at the meeting point - Hotel Parador de Canadas del Teide, this is the only hotel in the Teide National Park and it is located nearby the start point of our trail.

At the point where we start our climbing Mount Teide, you will find a café that opens from 10:00h to 18:00h so you are able to get a cup of coffee, drinks, and snacks if you haven’t taken it with you. At the end of Mount Teide tour by the cable car base station, there is also a cafeteria where you can relax a bit and a drink or a meal after walking up Mount Teide.

Mount Teide possesses two peaks - the Pico Viejo or Old Peak and the Pico del Teide, the highest peak and our route to the summit lays through the Old Peak, so you will conquer both peaks in the same day. Basically, Mount Teide is located inside of the enormous pre-historic volcanic caldera and this crater is known as one of the largest single craters in the world. Because of its unique micro-climate and location on the territory of the Teide National Park, you will witness exceptionally unusual landscapes and rock formations. Many of them are looking like from another planet while you are climbing Teide and you will also find tens of kinds of different bushes and plants that are completely endemic - that means you would find them nowhere else in the world. More than a half of the pre-historic caldera is surrounded by the gigantic crater’s rim and as higher you are hiking toward the Pico del Teide as more and more you realize how big the crater is.

Once reaching the Teide Summit you will clearly see the whole caldera formed about 190 000 years ago. On the way to Pico del Teide, you will also hike across the crater of the Pico Viejo (lower Old Peak of Teide). After climbing Mount Teide to the summit area (from 3500m up) we enter the area protected and restricted for reasons of nature conservation. In order to get to the area, you need a special Permit. To obtain a Teide National Park permit, you need to provide us following information right after the tour was booked:

- Name (as in the passport).

- Surname (as in the passport).

- Passport nr (or national ID-card nr for EU, Norway, Switzerland, Ukraine and Iceland nationalities).

- Date of Birth

- Sex.

- Passport or ID-card issuing country.

Once you’ve sent us the information required to apply and get the permit allowing you access the Mount Teide summit, we will get the Teide National Park permit especially for you, because of licensed guides as your guide have own pool of permits they can receive and these permits are not available for the general visitors or guides. Please, remember, you will need to present your ID or passport on-site together with the Pico del Teide access permit. Your guide will hold your Mt Teide permit, so you just need to take your passport or ID-card with you. Mount Teide permits may not be obtainable on certain days, so in this case, you will be offered an alternative tour date within the period of your stay in Tenerife.

You are hiking in a company of a highly experienced guide and it’s the guide who decides what route is taken to climb Mount Teide on a certain day. As you already know the Mount Teide possesses two peaks - the Pico Viejo or Old Peak and the Pico del Teide, the highest peak. There are two Teide walking routes and our route to the summit lays through the Old Peak, so you will conquer both peaks on the same day. This is quite a nonstandard route because the majority of hikers going up from the Northside through the Montana Blanca which is shorter but offers fewer views. In most of the cases, we hike the route through the Old Peak, if weather conditions allow us. The only cases the guide could decide to resign from the Mount Teide hike, is if the weather conditions are not good enough and too dangerous. The route through the Old Peak offers better visibility and better weather.

Booking the Climbing Mount Teide Peak Private Tour you must be prepared for a very specific climate and weather conditions. The air is extremely dry in the Teide National Park and most of the time the air humidity is close to just a 5%. Combined with the low air pressure and tricky weather it creates quite hard hiking conditions and that’s why the hiking Mount Teide is so challenging. If about the weather here it’s important to understand that the weather is completely different at the base of Mount Teide on the altitudes of 2000m above the sea level and at the summit. Moreover, the weather and average temperatures are different on every single month. Here you can check what kind of minimal and maximal temperatures you can expect on the summit of Mount Teide depend on what month you are climbing Teide:

I knew in advance that we would have to hike back down but it was also a fantastic experience. My guide Josue was a really good guy and was at all times polite and supportive. We needed cramp ons once we got to over 3000 metres which he thankfully had and supplied to me. I was collected and returned to my hotel in a very timely fashion. Excellent experience and highly recommended!!  Hide review

Elbert on our bucket list, so when planning our holiday in Tenerife, we booked a hike to the Mt. Teide summit well in advance. Although there was a risk the trail might be closed, we lucked out with the weather, and our guide picked us up from our hotel in Los Cristianos bright and early at 6:30 am, just as specified in the Tripspoint voucher. On the way to Teide, Andres shared interesting facts about the mountain and its significance in shaping the island. We began the hike around 8 am, and it wasn't too challenging until we reached the halfway point to the summit. As we ascended, we started to feel the effects of the altitude, changes in pressure, and the air becoming dryer and thinner. Despite our slower pace, Andres was attentive and suggested taking 5-10 minute breaks periodically. Finally, we reached the peak around half past 12, and the views, along with the sense of accomplishment, were absolutely breathtaking. We want to extend our gratitude to Andres for his understanding and patience throughout the tour!  Hide review

The description given is wholly misleading and nothing like described on the website. My experience was rushed and dissatisfying. You do NOT NEED a guide to climb Teide. Just get the permit several months in advance. The trails are very well marked and you can then go at your own pace without having to march to someone else's agenda. I had booked this trip as it was supposed to be an "exclusive and unique Mount Teide tour .... privately for you!" However there was another person booked on this trip and he was on a tight schedule as he needed to get a bus back to South Tenerife. So the entire trip was rushed with little time to stop and really take in the incredible scenery. Towards the end the guide went ahead to check on the other person but without telling me he proceeded to take the other guy up to the summit leaving me stranded and not even knowing where he was. In the end I phoned him on WhatsApp and I demanded he come down and take me to the summit. He did this, but after all the effort and the cost of this" absolutely private Mount Teide hike exclusively for you" I got to spend two minutes at the summit and we had to rush down to get the last cable car. Appalling for the cost involved. In addition the tour description states the we visit Pico Viejo. There was no reason why we could not do this as the weather was perfect. However since the other guy had to catch a bus this was not even an option.due to the time constraints. >  Hide review

When I went out Andres was already there waiting for me. On the way up Andres explained me a lot about Tenerife and the volcano. Finally we arrived to the star point to the "camino de Montana Blanca" at approximately 8:00 AM. There were a few people starting with us. Well, we left them behind since Andres is mountain guide and I'm amazed with his hiking abilities. I've climbed Mount Kilimanjaro 3 months ago and Mt. Elbert in Colorado half a year ago, but was barely able to follow up with him. Andres was very kind and always trying to keep up with me instead of of pushing me up. We've finally made to the summit in 6 hours. Maybe not a record, but I've got there and so happy tired!!! That's the tour to do, if you'd like to have a really unique experience in Tenerife! He told he prefer to have bookings with TripsPoint because they are "no joke" whatever it mean, so I made a right decision. Thank you Andres! With the best memories, Robert!  Hide review
