Ready for the definitive Teide experience? Take the rare chance to visit the world’s largest solar observatory before ascending the highest mountain in all the Spanish territories. 

Discover the fascinating role in man’s understanding of the sun and solar system played by the Teide Observatory. Admire one of the huge telescopes up close and find out how it works.

Soak up spectacular views of Mount Teide as you tuck into a traditional tapas lunch at a local restaurant. Shop for local produce, then survey the otherworldly landscape of the Teide National Park from the best seat in the house. 

Glide via cable car to the mountain’s higher station – over 12,000 feet above sea level – and enjoy plenty of time to soak up the spellbinding vistas of rugged mountains and lava landscapes.
