  The "Forest Crown" and the Teide in the distance
by Muya

El Teide is Spain's tallest peak and the third tallest volcano in the world after the two in Hawaii. Its 3718 m height are quite impressive to me, knowing that Belgium?s highest point is only 694 m ! The summit, together with la Caldera de las Canadas form the ?Parque nacional del Teide?. Pico Viejo is another important summit of the park with its 3734 m.
But the road that leads you to the park is already worth it. It goes through a wonderful forest of canarian pine trees before zigzaging along blocs of rocks and entering the lunar landscapes of Las Canadas?old crater.

Directions: Right in the middle of the island

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
