Full description
Visit the largest national park in the Canary Islands and experience a volcanic landscape of unrivaled beauty. Daybreak and sunset are particularly spectacular times in the park and when night falls it becomes one of the best places on the planet to stargaze.

The changing seasons offer indescribable spectacles, with explosions of color from Teide white broom or Teide bugloss in springtime and the snows that cover the volcano in winter.

Board the cable car for the 8-minute trip to the highest peak in Spain. Once you arrive at the upper station (3,555 meters), you’ll have a view of Teide's shadow, reaching Gran Canaria, as you toast the views with a glass of sparkling wine.

After a short, 15-minute walk you’ll stop to enjoy the natural spectacle of the sunset behind the Pico Viejo crater and La Gomera, El Hierro, and La Palma.
