Volcan El Teide, Tenerife

(4.6/5 based on 7,500+ reviews on the web)
Climb to Spain’s highest peak at Volcan El Teide. Sitting at an altitude of 3,718 meters (12,198 feet), the volcano and its surroundings 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. While the summit is accessible by bus, it’s best to bring a car to take advantage of the many hiking options and viewpoints.
