floor. A cable car can take you to the summit or the more ambitious can tackle the six hour guided walk. At the top you can do a little exploring you perhaps even be inspired; after all, it is where Brian May (astrophysicist and Queen guitarist) wrote "Tie Your Mother Down" in 1971.

The Teide National park is magical place. In some points you can see a mantle of clouds below you and in others you can literally walk on the moon.

My favorite activity on the island is hiking in the beautiful Teide National Park. Mount Teide is the highest peak in Spain and is surrounded by weird and wonderful rock formations created by craters, lava flows and vents. An abundance of trails allow hikers to explore the national park and one of the most popular trails takes you to the summit of Mount Teide. Most people don't venture much further than where the tour bus drops them off, leaving the rest of the park free to more intrepid explorers. It's a fantastic place for those who like to escape and immerse themselves in nature.

The most beautiful place in Tenerife, also called The Top of Spain. From here you can see the whole island from just one spot! Driving to it is also extremely beautiful!

The crowning jewel of Tenerife. As you drive up the mountain roads, the pine forests gradually are gradually replaced by desert-like bush, and finally the barren, lunar landscape the volcano is known for.

The cable car may seem pricy at 27€ per person for a round trip, but it's worth every penny (especially when I think back at the rip off that is the CN Tower in my home town). Make sure you book your tickets online, and choose an early time slot, otherwise the wait in line is sure to be long.

For avid hikers there is an option to walk up from the car park (takes about 5 hours). There are also a couple of short hikes around the cone of the main crater (which nonetheless feel like s workout thanks to the thin air). Hiking to the very top requires permission which must be obtained in advance (but is free).

The views at the top are breathtaking, unlike anything I've ever seen.

There's so much to see - I love the way that it feels Spanish yet almost Caribbean at the same time. The two main islands have much to appreciate. Check out Mt. Teide in Tenerife, which is striking volcanic landscape, and rent a car to check out the villages in interior of Las Palmas, which in the spring smells like amaretto with all the almond trees in bloom.

Parc naturel inscrit au patrimoine mondial de l'Unesco, il se trouve au centre de l'Ile de Tenerife. Son principal interet est le Mont Teide superbe cone volcanique. La zone est parfois le théatre de tournages de films.
On peut y randonner, grimper au sommet a pied ou par un téléphérique.
L'un des must de Ténérife!

Este es mi lugar favorito para hacer senderismo. cada vez que puedo cojo la mochila y me voy a hacer uno de los muchos senderos que tiene. Un lugar con unos paisajes impresionantes y mucha paz y tranquilidad. Lo recomiendo a todo el mundo, visitantes y Tinerfeños.
