Las Cañadas del Teide National Park

Route to the Teide

This is a must stop for all of you who are visiting Tenerife.

Since I was staying at the Costa Adeje, south of the island, I traveled from south to north along the TF-21 road in a rented car, from Vilaflor to Icod de los Vinos, crossing Las Cañadas. It is amazing to see how the landscape changes as you go up.

First you pass the forests of the Corona Forestal Natural Park, the biggest protected natural reserve of the archipelago (more than 46000 hectares).

When you pass the 2700 meters above sea level, the landscape drastically changes and the greenness is substituted by an arid landscape, almost lunar, composed by rocky formations, volcanic cones and craters.

If you are in Teide, you must go up by cable car to visit the upper part.

You go up about 3500 meters to a path that divides into two, one goes to the crater and the other one goes around it. If you want to go up to the crater you will need special written permission since it is a protected space and its access is very controlled. But the permission is free of charge.

When you up to the Teide, it is advisable to wear good sunscreen, also you should not run, since it is very high up and there is less oxygen in the air. It will tire you faster or affect people with respiratory problems.

You Can See it From All Over the Island

The Teide is located at the center of the island, Tenerife, and you can see it from all over the island and it is impressive, it has a ring of clouds that decorate it permanently. It is 3718 meters above sea level and it is the highest peak in Spain, so you see why it shouldn’t be missed, right?

I will focus on my own experience, instead of giving you other specifics that can be found on the internet. It is a stratovolcano, and this is exactly what makes it so different, since the landscape is completely volcanic, full of rocks and caves, of black sand, different t o the one in the beaches of Tenerife, since it is made of little black stones. There are many different landscapes that can be admired in the national park, and they are all found in the same mountain.

A Great Treasure in Tenerife


This is one of Spain’s greatest treasures. The Cañadas del Teide National Park has the highest peak in the country, and one of the highest peaks in the world was named World Heritage by UNESCO. It is really impressive to see the dimensions of this volcano bathed by a sea of clouds. The route up to the volcano’s base is really impressive. As you get nearer to the volcano, you will see the red ancient rocks followed by the ones with a green and black color. Near the Parador de las Cañadas de Tenerife you have magnificent views of the volcano. To go up you have to know that there will be a change of pressure and you can get dizzy.

See the stars

After spending most of the afternoon in the bus, we finally arrived at the very top of Mount Teide National Park. To be honest, it was worth it, but make sure you wrap up warm! Then in the evening, if you are lucky with the weather, you can see the stars!
