The landscape of the national park includes more than 160 different plant species with 12 species only found in the national park. In May and June the local Tajinaste blooms and will bear beautiful red colors.

Because El Teide is located in the middle of Tenerife it is accessible from all corners of the island. When you arrive at the foot of the mountain, there is a cable car. This 8 minutes during ride will take you up the mountain. The cost of the lift is approximately 27 euros per person. However, it is not mandatory to go up because the view at the base is also very great.

The island also offers a lot of guided tours. If you love watching the stars, you can walk up El Teide during the night with an expert guide and see the sky filled with stars.

Either way, this is a must see experience.
