  • Do not believe those who say. Not interesting. Seriously boring. It's saying either idlers or those who have never been in this place. Fans walking endless expanses. Lovers of silence-ringing in the ears the silence and serenity. Even amateurs can relax and sunbathe on the beach-a day of clear blue sky and the sun always!

  • If you ever do holiday on Tenerife, then visit the Teide is mandatory. Alone to the valley station of the cable car ride is scenic. It's amazing how the flora and fauna already changes after a few miles. After the cable car calmly and safely brought us to the mountain station, we could explore the views and the solid for us. It is recommended to put on warm clothing because temperatures (and wind) can be pretty fresh.

  • Hiking to the Teide is spectacular. See all that nature, desert landscapes of stone and lava, beautiful rock formations and during the climb those forests and the sea of clouds which perhaps below this raining, then up a dazzling sun. Twice I've gone up to the Teide, one of them stayed until the spectacular night view the stars from there up.
