Teide, the highest peak in Spain
Teide National Park is the perfect place to appreciate the constructive creativity of volcanoes. Located in the centre of Tenerife, the star attraction of this natural amphitheatre, which measures 15 kilometres wide and is the product of countless eruptions, is El Pico de Teide, which, at 3.718 metres above sea level is the highest mountain in the whole of Spain. Anyone who has delighted in its magnificent lava flows and has seen its impossibly clear skies above will understand why this natural treasure is the most visited natural park in Europe and is a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Surprisingly, these huge lava fields, situated mainly at altitudes of over 2000 metres above sea level, are full of animal and plant life. This natural wealth is explained in detail in either of the two information centres and through the comprehensive signpost network throughout the area. To get around, visitors have four main access points to choose from and a variety of roads which are open to both public and private transport. The quality and variety of services available makes Teide an ideal place for the whole family to visit.
