Start: El Médano Finish: El Médano
Extra night at Hotel in El Médano mandatory from 23/12 to 06/01
With your rental car you'll drive to the hotel in Medano to leave the heavy luggage. Then you drive up to the large (free) car park at 2350 m altitude at the cable car that takes you up towards the mountain hut and volcano. If you get off the cable car and have to walk for approx. 1.5 hours further to the refuge Alta Vista del Teide at 3260 m. The hall of the hut opens at 11.00. Kitchen, laundry rooms and bedrooms are only available from late afternoon until very early in the morning. So today you have plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings.
You can take your own food to the top, which you can warm up in the hut. Do not forget your breakfast for tomorrow morning! Drinks are on sale at the cabin.
Nothing more beautiful than a sunrise from the top of the volcano. To this end, you have to get up very early: the bedrooms close at 8:00 pm and you have your permit up for 9:00. If you get up around 5:30, you'll usually be on time at the top to see the sun rise. From the hut you must still overcome 450 meters altitude, it will be best to take it easy given the height.
On the descent to the hut you continue to enjoy the rest of the trip to the park again. Then you step into the car and drive to a lovely beach with swimming pool, and not too far from the Tenerife South Airport.
Note: You can also take the cable car today (down), but this ticket is not included and you must arrange it through the refuge itself.
After breakfast the arrangement comes to an end. It is possible to extend your stay near the beach with some extra nights
