Teide National Park, Tenerife

4.7
#2 of 26 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. Visit the park's website to plan a hike and check the weather for your outdoor adventure. To plan Teide National Park vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

    We took a tour to the Park - it was amazing, some wonderful scenery, the drive back along the valleys was outstanding and scary at times.  more »

    This year will be released yet another remake of "planet of the apes". This year are exactly 50 years after the first footage on these territories (at the time the actors recited here, not in front of green screens upon which digital constructs images and panoramas). Personally, I am 20 years back. There is no longer the Pesetas. There is no roaming. (Then Sip 20 digit code prepaid cards). The South Island is super built. But one thing doesn't change. The Teide. The lunar landscape. The peace that reigns at high altitude, leaving the groups behind some curve. The colors. The clouds. The blue sky and all shades of Brown and ochre on Earth. Comodo is the ticket "official" made on the website of the volcano. Arrive at the right time and avoid queues. The version of tour by bus from tour of "pots". The more time you spend at restaurants and shop than anything else. Come by car. Cheaper to rent one for a day that 4 tickets from tour operator

  • Breathtaking place, but best visited on a day without too many clouds. The roads leading to it can be a bit steep and narrow and I would strongly recommend returning in daylight. Sturdy shoes are recommended, as there are even more magnificent views to be had if you walk up some mountains/hills. Make sure to stop at every location that is marked, as the surroundings change after every corner.
  • Great National Park - stunning views and a cable car ride up Spain's highest mountain. If you need to go to the peak a pass is required prior to your visit ( from the Santa Cruz Parks Office - this is a 40 min. quite difficult walk, but it's not essential). Take your time to explore the surroundings.
  • Excellent center to explore the park from. Good selection of refreshments, air conditioning, clean. Good advice about walking routes and amazing scenery.
  • Nervous drivers don't drive your gonna have heart palpitations. Great views along the way worth going just for the journey up alone many view points along the way so fill your boots with many breathtaking views. Make it an early trip of you drive so you can come back down in daylight. Coach is probably the better option though
  • Best experience on the island. Definitely take cable car! And bring some warm clothes!
