Teide National Park

Teide National Park, a World Heritage Site with over three million visitors a year, is the best place to see volcanic phenomena on Tenerife. You’ll be astounded by the colours and the wild force of this surreal landscape, overlooked by Spain’s highest peak at 3,718 metres. It is home to many local species of fauna and flora, such as the Teide violet or Tenerife bugloss, whose bright colours stand in stark contrast to the thousands of tonnes of ochre running through this unique landscape.

The Ancient Dragon Tree

Estimated to be over 800 years old, the Ancient Dragon Tree of Icod de los Vinos presents a unique chance to see and touch such an incredibly old living being: a tree (actually, it’s a bush) of colossal size, 20 metres around and 16 metres tall.

Volcanic Experiences

Lava flows through the very veins of the Island, a result of Tenerife’s volcanic birth. To enable you to explore this aspect of the island, we’ve recently marked out five areas (Territorio Antiguo, Volcanes Legendarios, Los Dos Valles, Tierra de Contrastes, El rincón de la luz) which best represent Tenerife’s volcanic attractions, showcasing wine cellars that reflect the Island’s magmatic nature, restaurants serving “volcanic” dishes, underwater eruptions, craters, volcanic cones and vents.
Tenerife

Lava Tubes

One activity which cannot be enjoyed anywhere else is the chance to explore a lava tube such as Cueva del Viento (Cave of Wind), at Icod de los Vinos. At 17 kilometres in length, it is the longest in Europe, offering an unforgettable journey into the depths of the Earth and a perfect chance to discover the Island’s volcanic past.

Anaga Rural Park

Tenerife

Teno Rural Park

The lucky 1,300 inhabitants of Teno Rural Park, a place of stunning natural beauty, live in the small towns of El Palmar, Teno Alto, Los Carrizales, Las Portelas and Masca.

Los Gigantes

The name Los Gigantes (The Giants) was given to this cliff for obvious reasons. This cliff in Santiago del Teide forms part of the Teno Rural Park and at certain points towers 600 metres above sea level, with virtually sheer walls provoking a sense of vertigo even when seen from below.
Tenerife

Candelaria Basilica

Its white and beige tones provide stark contrast to the bronze statues of Los Menceyes (ancient pre-Spanish kings) standing alongside the basilica and the black volcanic sands of the beach at its feet. The religious value of this building is greatly enhanced by the treasure of incalculable spiritual value housed within: the exquisite statue of the Virgin of Candelaria, Patroness of the Canary Islands, highly revered by the islanders.

Adán Martín Tenerife Auditorium

Santiago Calatrava designed this work of art, what seemed like an impossible building. With part of its structure hanging in mid-air as if by magic, the exterior radiance of the Tenerife Auditorium reflects the beauty which it emanates. It’s a must-see for all visitors to the Island, and attending one of the regular concerts, operas or musicals is the ultimate experience.
