El Teide is the big volcano located in the middle of Tenerife. It’s a little over 3.700 meter high and Spain’s highest mountain. Today we’ll stay near El Teide in the Teide National Parc in a hotel at 2.200 altitude. Two hikes of some 7 – 8 km each gave a good impression of the bare landscape around the volcano. If you look carefully you’ll see some mountaineers on one of the photos.
