Walking in Tenerife

Tenerife is the largest island of the Canaries archipelago, born from many volcanic eruptions and eroded by time, it is home to a great variety of microclimates that shape the landscape in its everlasting spring. In the north, the rain is more frequent painting its forests with a luxurious green in Parque Rural de Anaga while the south of the island is drier and sunnier, very popular for its warm water beaches. The uniqueness of the habitats and microclimates turns this island into a home for species of fauna and flora that can only be found here. The highest mountain in Spain, El Teide, a 3718 meters volcano, majestically dominates the whole island and provides impressive rocky landscapes in its huge “caldera” over 2000 meters above the sea. Tenerife was discovered by Spain in the Age of Discoveries and many colonial settlements were placed all over the island. Remnants from this incredible time can be found on the historic towns and cities where there is a lot to be discovered and the rich local gastronomy can be tasted in the many local restaurants.
