The inside story

The Teide is a volcano located on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands (Spain). It is the country's highest peak, with an altitude of 3,718 meters above seal level and 7,500 meters above the ocean floor. It is the third highest and bulkiest volcanic structure on the planet, after Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea in Hawaii.

During the European expansion, Teide's towering altitude explained why it was considered as the highest mountain in the world, since the Spanish, Portuguese and British sailors used it as a beacon during their navigation through the Atlantic Ocean to the South. The Teide is the most emblematic natural element of the Canary Islands and one of its main touristic attractions is visited by millions of people each year.

The volcano forms part of the Teide National Park, which was declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 2007. A deserved recognition, as is the most complete sample of supra-Mediterranean vegetation floor in existence and one of the most amazing volcanism manifestations there is worldwide. If you visit the park, don't forget to take the cable car: the base station is 2356 meters above sea level and the highest station is at 3555 meters. Once you reach the top, you will be able to look at an extraordinary view!
