Sunset and Stars on Teide Tour

It’s just after 5pm, the people around me are
wearing fleeces and long trousers. The temperature is about 8C and
dropping with the sun. A car pulls up and a man, woman, girl and boy get
out to check if the cable car is still running.
They are all wearing shorts and T-shirts. The family clearly haven’t
done any research into how the temperatures at altitude are
significantly cooler than at the coast.

On the beaches of Costa Adeje and Puerto de la Cruz it’s 30C, unseasonably hot for November, thanks to the presence of a calima.
The temperature at the upper cable car station is -2C. It’s lucky for
the T-shirt wearing family that the cable car is no loner running as far
as the general public is concerned. It is, however, going to transport
us to almost the top of Spain’s highest mountain as we’re on the Sunset and Stars on Teide.
