Overview

Book
Dominating the stunning island of Tenerife and the highest peak in Spain, UNESCO Mount Teide is famed for its breath-taking national park, amazing lunar landscape, endemic flora, star gazing skies and incredible views of the surrounding islands. This fantastic adventurous weekend starts in the small hillside village of Chio with its timeless feel and views of the coast. Next we head to the Teide National Park and begin our ascent to the fantastically located Alta Vista Refuge 3260m for an overnight. Our trail snakes through a brightly coloured landscape dotted with volcanic boulders and stark lava fields. Spending an evening on the shoulders of Teide ensures we catch the magnificent sunset. An early start the following morning allows us to stand on the highest point on the island, 3718m as the sun rises and the famed Teide shadow dominates the horizon a truly memorable experience! This adventurous short-break finishes in the capital of Santa Cruz with its pavement cafes being the perfect spot to finish the weekend with a spot of celebrating.

This trip should not be underestimated if weather conditions are poor. We had 100 km winds and driving snow at the top Long days but excellent fun I would probably rate the trip at a 7. Remember to take micro spikes just in case as these are not something you would normally associate with Tenerife. The guide, Cao, and the on-site team were excellent. A lot was learnt in such a small period of time.

A very condensed itinerary: up and down Teide in two days had my legs protesting at the end but it was well worth the effort. Ascending from the Alta Vista refuge before dawn to experience sunrise from the summit (and see the shadow cone) was a real highlight, as was the rather surreal volcanic terrain. Some of the lava looked as it had erupted only yesterday. Nice to see another side of an island known better for package tourism too.

Everything happened as it should, more or less, a few circumstantial hiccups, but nothing to do a big bottom lip about. Maybe the cold shower was just refreshing. A path was closed so we couldn't do the exact itinerary, but maybe we got the bettter option - especially with a novice trekker on board (not me, I think). Shame it was a little cloudy as it spoiled our sunrise summit, but at least I didn't burn up. Amazing landscape, being in a volcano. Enjoyed the local food. Our Guide knew his stuff, and even helped me find my end of break accommodation when the long weekend had ended. Brilliant taster for another holiday doing more adventurous things like snorkelling, canyoning, cycling or even more trekking on different parts of the island.

This was my first trip with KE Adventure and also my first time at altitude so held a lot of the unknown for me. The experience though was excellent. The booking process was simple and the team at KE very helpful and supportive. The web site was easy to use and the trip was soon booked for my wife and I. We booked our own flights but the arrival times were outside the suggested normal times from KE but this was fine with KE and they arranged alternative transfers very efficiently and at a very good price. Once on the ground in Tenerife we were met at the accommodation by our very friendly and helpful guide who showed us in and got us settled. The accommodation was basic but clean, tidy and secure with adequate facilities. The group meal that evening was excellent and very relaxed and the two guides joined us and it gave everyone a good opportunity to get to know each other and for the guides to understand our abilities. The next two days were fabulous, the guide knew his stuff with lots of information about the hike and the surrounding area. The pace was good and we both felt in good, safe hands. The food supplied for the hike was simple but certainly good enough to keep us going. The two day hike was everything we had hoped, challenging, enjoyable and great fun with an amazing sense of achievement and some great photo opportunities. The final meal on the last evening was again simple but very tasty in a local restaurant and a great way to finish off a lovely weekend. As a re

This is a great addition to KE's list of weekend adventures. Not as tough as the others so a great starter for anyone looking to give one of these trips a try. Cal the guide paced this perfectly considering the variation in experience of the group members. Fantastic food in the towns. The ascent was non-technical but still a challenge due to the altitude and the heat
