What you'll do

The start of the hike is scheduled at 1 a.m. or 2 a.m. depending on the sunrise.
We will start our ascent from the path of Montaña blanca for about 3.30 h until the refuge of Altavista where we will have a short break. We will continue the ascent to the crater, about 1.30h, more or less depending on your pace and we will arrive at the summit 3718 m to observe this magnificent spectacle: Sunrise and its explosions of color, the shadow of Teide on the Atlantic and of course feel this unique energy that the volcano gives us. Return scheduled by cable car at 9:00 am (21 euros / person not included in the price)
for climatic reasons the cable car can be closed, in this case the descent will be on foot by the same path (count about 3 h)
This experience requires very good physical condition, motivation and good equipment. We reach 3718 m the oxygen is scarce and the temperatures can sometimes be negative.
It is a real personal challenge but the reward is great and surpassing oneself gives unforgettable satisfaction.
And for all those who wish, we also offer a private room for your accommodation in Tenerife.

It felt very special to experience such a stunning sunrise and well worth the night time hike. Patrick was a fantastic guide and set the pace to ensure the ascent was not difficult which made it all the more enjoyable. We were lucky the cable car was open for our descent as downhill hiking is never fun! Highly recommend for hikers or generally fit people and make sure to take warm clothes, it is very cold at the top!

Everything was as perfect as described online. The sunrise was magical at such an altitude. The communication with Patrick was super easy and he responded very quick with any questions. Patrick was of great help with his breathing tips. Totally recommend a trip with Patrick! Thank you so much for your support! My friends and I won't forget this experience :)

I loved this experience from start to finish. My breathing was difficult at times but Patrick helped me with breathing techniques and it made me more relaxed. The sunrise was spectacular. I would recommend doing this while in Tenerife.

Des paysages comme on en voit qu’une seule fois dans sa vie. La montée est intense mais la récompense n’a pas de prix... Patrick a su se montrer prévenant et adapter le rythme de la marche à chacun. Il nous a transmis son savoir et sa passion, c’était un réel plaisir de partager cette expérience avec lui. Merci mille fois pour cette journée inoubliable 🙏🏻

Laura and Patrick are wonderful, welcoming hosts. As the trails where closed on the planned day, Patrick went out of his way and offered me to change the date on really short notice. They even provided me a room to stay as I didn't have a car to drive to the meeting point by myself. The hike itself was amazing too. Patrick made sure we kept a steady pace with short breaks in between. He is really knowlegeable and shared a lot of interesting facts and his love for Mount Teide. As the trail gets really challenging after a while, we often walked in pleasent silence too, to concentrate on our steps ahead. Being rewarded with an stunning sunrise above the clouds made this whole hike an experience I will never forget. Thank you!
