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.

  • Spectacular natural scenery, no need to ride the cable car, only upload to the area of the Park because it is incredible. My preferred ascent is by hope and lowered by Chio (if this clear you can get to see the 3 smaller islands and they are amazing).

  • A magnificent site to discover preferably with a good guide. And Yes take a guide to understand the volcano, to discover the flora, the habits of the Canary Islands, in a word for nothing lose this amazing scenery. The arid nature really hidden wonders!

  • Because you've missed one of the most charming, different, beautiful, spectacular, etc, etc that you could go and without great effort. Gives equal where you upload or download travel up to above is spectacular, but it is that when you get still better. I'm from Gran Canaria, but if I'm going to Tenerife a visit to el Teide falls safe, also ground down to La Esperanza, with the ubiquitous lunch the different and good places to eat. I will put photos, but really, what I advise is if you are, you go or you plan to go to Tenerife, do not miss it

  • One of the best national parks. Fantastic diversity and great views. Don't be afraid if it rains at sea levels usually it's bright and shiny at the top. The roads are ok until you don't think u are a rally driver and trying to show off.
  • Awesome place. Beautiful views. You have to see on your eyes🌅 I do recommend for everybody. Many movies were filmed over there like Clash of the Titans, One Million Years B.C. or even The Fast and the Furious. Check yourself🗻
  • We spend the day exploring, hiking and geocaching at the National Park. We drove from the south of the island and explored some of the parks and rest stops on the way there and on the back. Make sure that you have layers for the trip up, we went from 300 m to 4500 m in altitude. Lots of interesting little stops with information panels for the region. Visited December 2014
  • We joined an excursion to Teide National Park, starting from Playa de las Americas. It took us about an hour to gradually rise on a winding road among almond trees before we reached the ridge of the hill at an altitude of somewhat 2000 meters. We then realized that this was the rim of the crater, revealing a field of lava before our eyes. Beyond this hectares of moonscape, rose the Mount Teide with a glory. We paid an extra 27 euros per person to take the cable car up to an altitude of 3500 m which was only 218 meters below the summit. Knowing that we were at the vertical limit of mountain sickness and were given no time to spend an extra hour for climbing, desperately turned back to the queue of the cable car. I recommend you to rent a car and take your time to enjoy Mt. Teide.
  • This national park has an otherworldly landing on Mars! In and around the Mt. Teide caldera, there is an entirely different micro climate and vegetation than the rest of the island. This park shouldn't be missed.
