Best for First-time visitors - Expert review of Teide National Park
For me, this is Tenerife's number one 'must-see' attraction and I never tire of visiting it. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Spain's highest mountain and the planet's third largest volcano, Mount Teide stands at 3718 metres (12,198 feet) above sea level in a 17 kilometre wide crater.
At crater level the landscape is astonishing but for the ultimate high, take the cable car to within 200 metres of the summit and look out over the old peak and the entire Canarian archipelago. Awesome.
The cable car ascent takes around seven minutes and is 25 euros return for adults and 12.50 euros for under 14-year-olds - expensive, but worth doing once.
