We visited the Las Cañadas National Park about 15 months ago. The scenery is unlike anything we have ever seen before, most unusual rock formations everywhere and also the lava field is spectacular. There were good sign boards explaining the geography of the area. In addition, it was so cold with patches of snow. It was 22 down on the... More

its a long trip up on the coach with regular toilet stops but well worth the time. Go at night for the star gazing.

We had booked to take the cable car to the top of Teide volcano but unfortunately due to the weather the cable car was not running on the day but the drive through the area was still worth the visit and the drive through the area gives you an indication of the size of the original volcano.

Excellent and stunning location. Well worth a trip out and a spell off the sunbeds. Recommend getting to the cable car early to avoid the queues.

One of must-see-places in Tenerife! We started a day bit late and did not have so much to explore but we were glad to make it to see such stunning views. Volcanic scenery was just amazing to observe.

We visited Mount Tiede on Christmas Day, and it certainly made that special day even more so. The scenery is nothing short of stunning, and before actually reaching the base of the volcano there were photographic moments galore. It had been our intention to take the cable car to the ridge and then walk the rest of the way up... More

Just over an hour from the coast and you are in another world. Completely unspoilt and stunning. Changing scenery from pine forests to lunar-like plains. I love going up for a drive to see the clouds from above or take a teleferico up Teide, for even more amazing views.
