El Teide

Located within the heart of Tenerife, El Teide is a volcano that holds the highest peak in Spain and one of the most emblematic landscapes of the island. This magnificent volcano has become one of the essential destinations to visit during traveler’s getaways. You can explore this site in different ways, walking (which is the only way to get to the top), by cable car, by car or by bus. But, be careful, to access the highest point you must request a permit in advance as only a certain amount of people per day are allowed to conquer the grand volcano.
