Teide National Park - Tenerife (Canary Islands)

EUFCN Location Award

Teide National Park covers one of the world's most stunning volcanic landscapes. It lies right in the middle of the Island, at an altitude of 2,000 m above sea level, topped by Spain's highest peak at 3,718 m. These record-breaking figures add to the fact that it is the most visited national park in Europe, welcoming some three million visitors a year. With hundreds of cones, lava tongues and caves, it is the focus of much scientific and scenic interest. Its fauna and flora include a significant array of species that only live in the Park. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007.
