Spectacular volcanic beauty, and you can climb it by vehicle or on foot.
Spain's highest peak is an absolute must-visit.
Spain's loftiest peak and Tenerife's most distinctive landmark is also the most unforgettable experience you're likely to have on the island. The surrounding national park of arid/volcanic landscape sets it apart from the rest of the island, but of course the centrepiece is El Teide volcano, 3,718 metres (12,198 feet) high. You can drive up here on your own or with a wide choice of organised tours, or you can choose to climb on foot all the way up to the summit, where you'll be rewarded with spectacular views of the island and the Atlantic Ocean.
