Teide National Park is the most popular national park in Spain. It covers 46,925 acres and is located in the highest part of the island. It was declared a national park in 1954 and is the oldest and biggest of the National Parks in the Canary Islands.

It is formed of two huge basins and is crowned by Mount Teide which measures 3,718m high. The spectacular scenery, as well as the fauna, flora and tranquillity all make this park worth visiting. The park contains a total of 168 plants, 58 of which are considered to be endangered species.

Obtaining the permit required to scale Mount Teide is easy. All you have to do is go to the Teide National Park Administration Office and make the request and you will be given the permit straight away. Or you can make the request by writing to the office but you must do so a month prior to your visit.
