Tenerife, Canary Islands

The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife tempts travelers with its mountainous landscape, 165 miles of shoreline and welcoming year-round weather. Dig your toes in the sand at beaches in the towns of Adeje or Arona, hike among the vegetation and lava flows in Corona Forestal Nature Park, enjoy a dip in the saltwater pools at Lago Martianez or discover local history and culture in San Cristobal de la Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Serenity washes over you during a stroll through the flora of the La Orotava Acclimatisation Gardens, established in 1788, while a visit to Loro Parque offers a look at more than 4,000 parrots, as well as gorillas, hippos, lions, jaguars and more. In Teide National Park, take in the panoramic views on a cable car ride up Mount Teide. From the top gondola station, complete the challenging, roughly 40-minute trek to the 12,198-foot summit to stand on the highest point on Spanish soil.
