From August, people interested in obtaining the permission of access to the Mount Teide will not have to move up to the offices of the National park in Santa Cruz de Tenerife anymore, as it has become a common situation. Now it is possible to request the permit from any corner of the planet on the following website www.reservasparquesnacionales.es
This service make easier the obtaining of the authorization free of charge through the Online Central Booking of the Autonomous Organism of National Parks.
The access to the peak is controlled to avoid massive visits, now that the crater of the Teide is an area of high ecological and geologic sensibility. For this reason, the protection norms authorize a maximum of 200 persons per day.
