Any self-respecting romantic evening must include a sunset. This is a Basic Level Package for Couples. We consider ourselves fortunate to be at Mount Teide, and we can offer you a sunset on another level completely if you decide to treat your partner to a visit to Mount Teide.
What makes Mount Teide the perfect place to bring the love of your life at whatever time of year you visit Tenerife? We’ll tell you:
- You and your partner will feel closer than ever: you’ll understand what we mean when you’re on a starlit excursion on Tenerife, at the summit of a stunningly beautiful Natural Park, hand in hand with the person who means the world to you. Nothing can beat it for bringing people close.
- You will soak up the incredible atmosphere of your surroundings: when you come to Mount Teide, you will find yourself literally part of a postcard scene. Wherever you look, you’ll be amazed by the vast array of colours that meets your eyes, and that’s not even counting the natural scenery. How do you fancy including islands such as La Gomera, El Hierro or La Palma in your souvenir photo?
- You can discover the heart of the island as a couple: these activities will fit in with exploring the Mount Teide National Park on your own. If you’re adventurous as well as romantic, why not combine one of these experiences with a self-designed trail through the volcano?
Yes, Mount Teide is the place. This is the place you’re looking for if you want to give your partner an experience that will truly amaze them. The colours of the horizon, the views, the natural setting of the volcano and the starlit skies make the perfect combination, and the four packages described below will allow you to enjoy them all:
#1 Sunset Tour: an excursion beneath the stars
Imagine watching the sunset from an altitude of 3,555 metres, from the viewing point of a balcony above the Atlantic Ocean. At your feet lies the enormous crater of a still-active volcano. As you were walking along the trail to the viewpoint, you’ve already seen the signs of volcanic activity: fumaroles and other geographical curiosities that you’ve never come across anywhere else.
The road leading to the path is also pure magic: the excursion allows you to make your own way to the cable car base station, enjoying along the way the majesty of a volcano that you will be able to view from above during your cable car ride. The tremendously popular cable car will be closed to the public, and available only to those fortunate enough to embark on this romantic adventure with the Volcano Teide Experience. You will be accompanied during your ascent by an expert guide, who will tell you about everything that makes Mount Teide so unique.
Well, this idyllic experience is real, and it’s within your grasp on the Sunset Tour which takes you to the summit of the volcano, where you will have the opportunity to navigate the night sky with a stargazing session in the company of Starlight guides. Did you know that Tenerife has one of the best skies in the world for stargazing? Yes: it’s the very same sky that you will experience as the culmination of one of the most romantic excursions the island can offer.
#2 Astronomical observation to enjoy the night sky as a couple
This package takes you directly to the stargazing session, so this original romantic package is just the thing for you if you’re the kind of people who only have to see a constellation before you start imagining the story that lies behind. You can also, on the way there, spend the day discovering the delights of Mount Teide for yourselves.
As we were saying earlier, the conditions on Mount Teide mean that (together with Chile and Hawaii) Tenerife boasts one of the world’s best skies for stargazing. And that is exactly what you will do on this excursion, but not only that—you will have to hand powerful scientific telescopes as well as qualified guides to help you navigate the universe and tell you the mythological stories behind each group of stars.
The session will be held at the Cable Car base station, the gateway to a universe teeming with galaxies, planets and star clusters. If you would like to share an incomparable romantic evening with your partner, choose this stargazing experience of one of the best night skies on Earth!
#3 A romantic sunset walk on the beautiful summit
Mount Teide is the highest mountain in Spain, and this excursion takes you to a spot where, whatever direction you look in, you will have an uninterrupted view of the breathtaking panorama. Truly spectacular!
Can you imagine the photo?
But let’s start at the beginning, because you’re going to enjoy this experience from the very first moment. After a leisurely wander around the foothills of the volcano, you will make your way to the cable car base station, which is where your experience will begin. Your expert guide will be waiting to board the cable car with you.
They will show you why, year after year, thousands of people travel to the Teide volcano. The colours, the unique landscape, the countryside... you’ll see it all as you climb to the pathway that leads to the heart of the volcano.
You will feel its heartbeat with every step you take. This path itself is quite magical and with the help of your guide, you will certainly get the most from it. Do you know how to recognise Las Narices del Teide [Teide’s Nostrils]? And what about the lava beds where streams of lava flowed for several days at a stretch over 200 years ago? You won’t want to miss a word of what the guide says.
Now you arrive at the Pico Viejo viewpoint, and it’s time to get your camera out. Few places in Spain are more romantic than this; your friends will be so envious when they see your photos! But you’re doing your own thing: Your backdrop can be the islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma, or the vast crater of the volcano—800 metres in diameter—with a vibrant sunset and nature all around.
#4 Magical Soirée: a mountain sunset, stars and gourmet cuisine
Did you really think we would offer you four options for a romantic evening in Tenerife with none of them including a gourmet element? Of course we wouldn’t! Just wait until you see it...
This is the deluxe package, available between May and October only, which will bring you as a couple even closer together. The intimate mood is set before you even start: if you prefer, you can make your own way by car to the cable car base station, enjoying the viewing points along the way during the 90-minute drive from the coast.
Once you arrive there, you will begin your romantic cable car ascent over this stunningly beautiful National Park, which currently welcomes more visitors than any other in the country. The cable car will bring you to an altitude of 3,555 metres, where you will begin your walk along the amazing trail that leads to Pico Viejo. You will be accompanied by our guide, whose presence will be invaluable as they share their expert knowledge of the rich natural heritage of Mount Teide.
At the end of the path through this incomparable setting, the most superb sunset you have ever seen awaits you. But let’s not linger here, because we’ve already told you about that. Instead, let’s move on to your return to the base station, and the cocktail dinner that awaits, created for the occasion by no less than Erlantz Gorostiza, the holder of two Michelin stars. The dinner will introduce you to the typical cuisine of Tenerife, with local products accompanied by some of the island’s best wines.
The gourmet element of this romantic package for couples (apart from being the perfect follow-up to the amazing sunset) will also serve as the prelude to the culmination of the evening—an astronomical observation using powerful, scientific telescopes directed at the most glorious night sky in Europe. We are not exaggerating: the clear, unpolluted sky over Mount Teide is one of the best places in the world for stargazing.
It appeals to you, doesn’t it? What an awesome post-dinner treat! During the session, the Starlight guides will tell you the story behind each constellation, and will answer any questions that occur to you as you gaze into the infinity of the Universe.
As we said at the beginning, this deluxe package is only available between May and October. If you and your partner can only travel to Tenerife between November and April, the best alternative is the Sunset Tour that we have already told you about.
