#2 of 35 in Nature in Tenerife
A national park that blossomed from the base of a volcano that is also the tallest mountain in Spain, Teide National Park is the most visited national park in the country. Almost three million visitors have been awed by the 3,718 m (12,198 ft) mountain peak. The remarkable terrain in the park is frequently studied by scientists because of its similarity to the planet Mars. Indeed, you'll notice red soil and strange plant life creating a Martian atmosphere along your walking trails.

  • Cannot recommend visiting Teide enough. We had a brilliant day out, the drive up there from Las Américas was stunning. I’d love to go back one day and actually walk up to the summit!  more »

  • The moon, Mars and Venus all in one place. Being here feels nothing short of otherworldly. Go to one of the many visitors centers to get a deeper understanding and a higher appreciation of the geological formations you can find here. With the last eruption being about a hundred years ago, you get a real feeling of how you're living on a planet that is alive, dynamic and changing. Easy access by car, just an hour from the coast.
  • The best experience of my life. Beautiful place which definitely worth the money spent. If you won't be lucky and get the permit to go on the top of Teide, make sure to go at least at the end of the cable car. And if you will be walking on the top, make sure to have enough water (4-5 liters of water per person is not too much), proper walking boots and warm clothes for when you reach the top.
  • Such an interesting place to visit offering plenty to see as you ascend up towards the peak. The landscape changes quite dramatically at time and is quite unique. You can see such beauty and also a harsh environment in the blink of an eye. Amazing place and at night with no light pollution, it is magical for night star gazing. So clear you can see so much more than normal. A must do visit when in Tenerife.
  • In this park you'll feel as if you were on another planet, the desert look of it gives a totally chill vibe. The landscape is astonishing and I can't even describe it with words. It's a must if you're staying in Tenerife. Also the trip to the park is beautiful since as you go higher and higher you get to see different types of vegetation and the change in landscape is highly notable.
  • Beautiful view from the bottom to the top. We ve been up with the cable car which was sold out at1pm already, the first time we tried without booking. Then we went back to days after with an online reservation. The route from north is much breathtaking then the route from south.
