Teide National Park

From another planet

Visiting the Teide National Park is one of the most exciting experiences when travelling to Tenerife. This Park is located in the centre of the island and was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 2007. You can walk through volcanic lava and admire its peak, Mount Teide, which at 3,718 metres is the highest peak in Spain and the third largest volcano in the world.

The Teide National Park is the route through which the 100M and 100K Tenerife Bluetrail by UTMB runs. The landscape is breathtaking and includes some of the most spectacular volcanic phenomena in the world, such as the structure of the caldera and the Teide-Pico Viejo stratovolcano, which is one of a kind on the planet. In addition to the hundreds of cones, lava flows and caves that enrich its scientific and scenic interest, there is also the incredible wealth of its flora and fauna, which include endemic Canarian and exclusive species.

It is also the most visited national park in Spain and Europe. This fact is backed up by the more than three million tourists who come to Tenerife every year to visit it.
