If you get the chance, just drive right across the volcano park, and take in the landscapes for all angles. Its such a contrast to the coast, and being higher, is much cooler !

We hired a car, and drove from Santa Cruz on the TF-5, then on to TF-21, and the scenery up through the national park was breath taking, as you rise up through the clouds, there are plenty of view points to stop at and take...More

El Teide is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to El Teide.

A have to see when on Tenerife. The pine tree line greed against the azure blue sky on way up are stunning. Super wired actually being higher than the cloud line - makes the other worldliness of the lunaresque landscapes even more surreal. Advice -...More

Stupendous views especially up on the volcano fields but also lower down in the forests. Back to the resorts in SW the exit east is best along the dorsal, exit north is a heck of a road up the NE corner. Better than Mt Etna

Hi Dully, We trekked to the summit before 9am so didn’t need a permit, otherwise I believe that you do, as they have to limit the number at the top (it’s a smaller space). If you really want to do it you can either hike up... More

There is apparently a route up, not sure of the exact time, but you’d be looking at 4+ hrs. Remember that you would be hiking some pretty tough terrain at 3000m so that is going to slow your progress.
