Mount Teide is a volcano, situated on the Canary Island, Tenerife. Elevation reaches 12,198 ft and is the tallest volcanic structure on Earth.
The last eruption happened suddenly and without warnings on November 18, 1909 and the volcano is still active today. Mount Teide is also a useful volcanic reference for studies relating to Mars due to the similarities in their environmental conditions and geological formations.
On a week-long visit in August 2018, we took our rental car and drove from Playa de las Americas towards the summit. You will be astonished with the surroundings whilst driving through Teide National Park, which is currently the most visited nation park in Europe; from luscious forests to the lunar volcanic rock formations; the view is truly spectacular.
