Mount Teide is a volcano on Tenerife, Canary Islands. In Spanish they call him: El Teide or Pico del Teide which means “Teide Peak”. Its summit at 3,718 m (12,198 ft) is the highest point in Spain and the highest point above sea level in all the islands of the Atlantic.
You can take a cable care from the Base Station at 2,356m to the Upper Station “La Rambleta” at 3,555m. But if you want to get to the very top: THE PEAK OF TIDE – you need to get the Mount Teide permit provided by the Teide National Park to climb to the summit.
Today I’ll give you a Step by Step guide to get the Teide Peak Permit.
What is the Teide National Park permit for?
El Teide is Part of the Teide National Park in the center of Tenerife. You can either go with the cable care to the top (currently 27€ for a return ticket) or you can hike up the volcano. Trails start from the upper cable car station. Up there you will find 3 trails, but only one of them reaches the peak of Teide: trail number 10, known as the Telesforo Bravo path.
For security reasons, access to this trail is restricted to a maximum of 200 people per day!
Info: Did you know that the Teide National Park is the most visited park of its kind in Europe?
The Mount Teide peak permit (PICO DEL TEIDE ACCESS PERMIT) will allow you to get access to the Telesforo Bravo path. These 200 permits are distributed among the general public and the Park’s official guides.

Where to Stay on Tenerife?
My personal favorite is Airbnb*. If you never used Airbnb* before, it allows private people to rent out Rooms to whole Apartments. It offers a big range of possible places to stay. From low budget to expensive options.
Why is it my favorite? Because in comparison to Hotels you can save a lot of money. Especially when you share the Accommodation with others. We spent 4 weeks in Tenerife in one of the best AirBnB’s you can get but we only paid 300€ per Person for 4 weeks. See the video below:
