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.

  • The climb to the Teide is a powerful moment; We did it by Guia de Isora and then the Ridge Road and down to Puerto la Cruz. We pass in no time in the er of vegetation cactus sea level and Aloe to coniferous trees and then to lava. 1 h - 1 h 30, it reached the bottom of the cable car and well worth the trouble. On the other hand, well cover

  • The entire expedition on Mount Teide starts already at the bottom. The journey takes about 40-50 minutes Wjeżdzając surround us different climate zones. Wilderness, mountain areas of coniferous forests, areas like mountain excavations, etc. Even if you do not want to drive to the top of the roller coaster, the journey on the lower stations Teide by car take your breath away. However, if someone wants to get to the top you should buy a ticket over the internet. If the queue is it for money (30 min) and not on the queue.
