Mount Teide, Tenerife

4.6
#1 of 36 in Nature in Tenerife
Climb to Spain’s highest peak at Mount Teide. Sitting at an altitude of 3,718 meters (12,198 feet), the volcano and its surroundings make up the 18,900-hectare (46,720-acre) Teide National Park: a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most visited wonder in Spain. Hike the dry lava terrain of the volcano and enjoy sprawling views of the Tenerife shoreline before winding back down through the scenic park. While the summit is accessible by bus, it’s best to bring a car to take advantage of the many hiking options and viewpoints. Our Tenerife route planner makes visiting Mount Teide and other Tenerife attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Impressive o awesome experience. Really different landscapes. The breakfast was very good.

  • To fully enjoy the magic of the landscape and fully soak up the atmosphere, it is best to spend the half day there. Get away from the noise of tourists and "feel" the silence.....

  • One of the best places I have visited so far!
  • Stunning. Now you see it then you don't. Very haunting. Often shrouded in cloud but you can sometimes see the peak. Outstanding. A must see.
