Things to See on Teide Tenerife
The main past time of visitors to Tenerife is walking up the mountain but without a summit permit (which you obtain for free) you are only allowed as far as the two miradors and their connecting path.
Much of the mountain is restricted to help avoid potential erosion and disturbance.
The drive up to Mount Teide is also very scenic taking you through some lush green forests where you are able to stop off and take in the views.
You can drive up to the cable car area to get to the very top of Mount Teide but parking is very limited.
There are many organised tours that you can take which you can book either through your tour operator or through a third party.
Although a place of natural beauty, it is very important for tourism as the mount has around 4 million visitors every year.
