A world away from the beach in an hour. Weird trees, ever changing rock formations and cacti ... a lovely sight for a day out, or a week.

We drove up to Teide from Acantilados de Los Gigantes via the motorway (TF-1) and then up the TF-38 from Chío. The road is really good, wide and easy to drive with hardly any hairpin turns. There are plenty of turnouts where you can enjoy...More

Absolutely fantastic. It's like the surface of the moon. We parked at the parador and did a hike. It was simply beautiful. Tenerife is the most beautiful place. Definitely try and do even a small walk (we did quite a big one)

The old caldera of the volcano has countless fantastic landscapes. Also many paths are indicated, quite some are very easy for every age. During our holiday of only 6 days, we visited this park twice, so good it was.

I would hire a car with the baby to transport you to Teide as the buses can be very crammed and there are numerous cafes with views, and viewpoints on the road up so if you don’t want to you do not have to walk very far at... More

You can not drive to the top you have to book cable car . You also walk the last part and only so many people are allowed each day so book in advance
