Tenerife is also well known for its mountain Teide, which is situated in the Las Canadas National Park. It is the highest mountain in Spain, being 3,700 metres high.
Excursions to the top of the mountain can be booked, guests being taken by cable car to the summit. The landscape is very varied, as it is very desert like at the bottom,
then as you drive up the landscape becomes greener, but nearer to the summit the landscape becomes more barren and magnifcent and anicent lava flows can be seen.
The weater can be similarly dramatically varied. On a hot day in April down by the beach the temperature at the summit was -11 degrees C with a very strong cold wind.
Visitors are advised to wear long trousers and bring jumpers. It is also popular for serious walkers and mountaineers.
We offer a wide selection of self catering apartments at Parque Santiago 3.
