Create an itinerary including Teide National Park
Explore the volcanic Martian landscape of Teide National Park. The towering 3,718 m (12,198 ft) Mount Teide volcano--Spain's tallest peak--dominates views throughout the country's most visited national park, while the red terrain underfoot elicits comparisons to Earth's closest neighbor. The distinctive Teide bugloss, a long red conical flowering plant, lines trails, while Canary lizards skitter about. Los Roques de Garcia, a reef of rock formations formed by erosion, is also well worth seeing within the park. To plan Vilaflor vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • it was a sunny day in November, clear skies and a very knowledgeable guide from Coming 2 excursions on Puerto de La Cruz. Should have gone up the cable car if we knew the skies would be clear.

  • Mount Teide, the highest peak in Spain and the third largest active volcano. What an amazing day. The drive up is exciting as the roads are windy with steep cliffs. The views out over the island are fabulous. The volcano stands well above the lava fields and is so impressive. There was 1.5m of snow on the peak, so we're unable go on the cable car. Definitely recommend visiting; it's a must do and wear something warm.
  • One of the most interesting and unique landscapes on the planet. You can drive through the crater of one of the world's largest volcanoes and have a once in a lifetime experience. If you love nature and geology there are few places in the world that are more exciting than this. You can walk among ancient lava fields and see all sorts of different minerals and rocks. It's truly the highlight of my Tenerife trip. If you plan to take the cablecar up to the top, make sure you book it in advance as chances are you cannot buy a ticket for the same day.
