In 1998 this place welcomed nearly four million visitors, outnumbering any other National Park in Spain. And it’s easy to see why. Shooting into the sky at an enormous 12,402 feet, Mount Teide in Las Canadas National Park is Tenerife's most famous landmark and the highest mountain in Spain. You’ll pass through the lush Esperanza forest, too, with its cool eucalyptus glades. The landscape starts to change the further you go, ending up with the well known volcanic surface.
A stop at the cable car station to the top of Mount Teide isn't included on this scenic drive. This tour may not be suitable for guests with heart problems due to the climb from sea level to 2300 metres. And don't forget to bring a jacket as it can be cool at this higher altitude.
- SUITABILITY Little physical activity.
