Mount Teide, Tenerife

4.6
#1 of 33 in Nature in Tenerife
Must see · Volcano · Nature / Park
Climb to Spain’s highest peak, Mount Teide. Sitting at an altitude of 3,718 meters (12,198 feet), the volcano and its base area 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, which is also home to Los Roques de Garcia, a reef of rock formations formed by erosion. 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 La Guancha route planner makes visiting Mount Teide and other La Guancha attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • 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.
  • Amazing place. Amazing views. Driving through the park it feels like you're on a different planet. I will be back again someday.
  • Beautiful place. We started our hiking trip around 3 o’clock in the night. At 7.30 in the morning we were on the top. Unforgettable views and experience.
  • Interesting Vista views of lava flows and rock formations. Nothing special. The drive up above the low cloud ceiling was pretty cool and picturesque.
