An impressive spectacle of nature that changes the landscape radically! When Mt. Teide wakes up surrounded by Red Tajinastes we know here in Tenerife that spring has sprung.

The Teide National Park has a very special tree surviving over the centuries on top of its volcanic soils, even after volcanic eruptions: a Pine Tree that is fire resistant.

Most people refer to Mount Teide as the highest peak in Spain and the third largest volcano in the world, but that is not all there is to this amazing place. Did you know that the mountain has been existent in the very area that it is for the last 8 million years?
Tenerife is an ideal island, not only for stargazing like in the Teide By Night excursion but for all kinds of outdoor activities. Among them, the most outstanding is hiking, which has a great interest in the island.
Teide By Night stands out among the activities to be carried out on the island of Tenerife for its visit to the main natural and tourist attraction of the island, and one of the most impressive in Spain.
