Exploring Teide National Park

By Viator, July 2016

4.5 63 Reviews | Add your review

A trip to Tenerife wouldn’t be complete without exploring the dramatic scenery of Teide National Park, with its weather-beaten lava fields and rocky peaks formed through years of volcanic activity. The striking centerpiece of the park is its eponymous volcano—the 12,198-foot (3,718-meter) peak of Mt Teide is not only Tenerife’s highest point but also Spain's highest mountain, offering spectacular views over the surrounding island.

Whether you’re visiting on a private shore excursion or as part of a group tour, scaling Mt Teide by cable car is the undeniable highlight of the national park. Additional highlights include the eerily beautiful lava fields of Chío, the Izaña Observatory and the Las Cañadas rock formations, famously featured in the movie Clash of the Titans.

A network of hiking trails runs through Teide National Park, and many tours include walks through scenic spots like the Roque Garcia rock formations and the lush Uncanca valley. Another popular choice is combining a tour of the park with wine tasting at one of the traditional bodegas (wineries) and vineyards of the La Orotava Valley.

The most atmospheric way to experience the national park is with a Mt Teide volcano night tour, where you’ll watch the sun set on the horizon from a high vantage point, then enjoy the moonlit landscapes as you walk beneath the stars.
