The thing that makes Tenerife so special is Mount Teide in the National Park Teide. This mountain is with 3718 meter the highest mountain of Spain. The park is a World Heritage Site of UNESCO since 2007. And as soon as you visit the park you know why! The park has a volcanic landscape and the rock formations show the most beautiful colours.

Mount Teide

When you are on top of Mount Teide it feels like you’re completely disconnected from the outside world… But nothing is what it likes, because if you want you can be back at the beach with a cocktail in your hand within 2 hours. It’s really cool to take the cable-way to the top. Do you want to do the climb, it will cost you about a 40 minute sturdy climb. Don’t forget to sign up for a permit 1 or 2 months in advance.
