What to see in Tenerife in 3 days?

On an island where you can spend the morning in snowy mountain terrain at the highest point in Spain. In addition, and be relaxing on the beach sunbathing in the afternoon, it´s well worth planning ahead.

The Teide

One of the most impressive features of Tenerife is the Teide. In fact, It’s not only the highest point in the Canary Islands but also in Spain, standing at 3,718 metres (12,198 feet) above sea level. To climb the volcano is a high difficulty. In fact, it’s a 10-kilometre route for some of the hardiest hikers, but there is also the cable car, picking you up at 2,356 metres and which is accessible by car or bus from Puerto de la Cruz (line 348) or Costa Adeje (line 342).

Additionally, this UNESCO World Heritage Site will certainly humble you, as you wander amongst an almost alien landscape, breathing pure, clean air, witnessing a wealth of fauna and flora, amongst a geological structure which is unique in the world. Be sure to wear suitable clothing, footwear and take water.
