"Mount Teide National Park" Canary Islands Things to Do Tip by gabriellefox

Canary Islands Things to Do: 239 reviews and 214 photos


This National Park offers a fascinating landscape, created by the elemental forces of the volcano Teide.

Teide is not only the highest mountain of Spain, but as well the highest elevation in all the Atlantic Ocean. A cableway takes visitors up to 3.600 meters. From there you may climb the peak by foot.

On clear days you have a fantastic view. But at least equally impressive is the volcano's immense crater, with a circumference of approximately 80 kilometers. You can enter the crater, first with a cross-country car, then by foot, until you arrive to volcanically still active parts.

Address: Tenerife - Canary Islands
