    • Teide Nationalpark

      Must-see and landmark
      The Teide National Park, UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the most popular destinations on Tenerife. The name comes from the word «echeide», which means cave, and is a reference to the volcanic origins and character of Tenerife. There are breathtaking views of the island from the park. The park measures 19,000 hectares, and was made a national park in 1954. The highest mountain within the park is the Pico del Teide at 3718 metres, which is also the island’s landmark. The contrasting play with the colours of the landscape in the park is also wonderful and fascinating.
    • Loro Parque

      Largest parrot collection
      This is a place to make the children’s eyes shine! And maybe not just the children’s. The park measure 135,000 square metres, and has the world’s largest collection of parrots with over 300 species. However, the animals are here to be protected, which is why visitors can only catch a glimpse of them at feeding time. But there are also plenty of other animals, such as gorillas, sea lions and dolphins, so those eyes keep on shining. And there’s also a large children’s play area, and a number of shows are held.

    • San Cristóbal de La Laguna

      UNESCO World Heritage Site
      La Laguna lies to the north of the island, and is well worth a visit. The university city, officially called San Cristóbal de La Laguna, has its own very special charm. The historic centre with its old churches, sacred buildings and manor houses was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999. La Laguna is not a coastal city, so it has no beach. It’s about 12 km to the next beach, Playa de la Teresitas.

    • Puerto de la Cruz

      Lovely old town
      Puerto de la Cruz appeals for its lovely villas, smart blocks of flats, luxurious gardens and very lovely old town. The redeveloped harbour area is a delightful spot to visit. There are also numerous shops, street festivals, concerts, the Botanic Gardens, an animal part, and swimming pools designed by the architect César Manrique.

      Longest beach
      Tenerife has many wonderful beaches. There are those on the southern coast and those on the northern coast. The beaches are mostly of dark lava sand, but some of them also have light sand. Playa del Médano is especially popular with water sports enthusiasts. It is the longest natural sandy beach on the island, and belongs to the municipality of Granadilla de Abona. Wind surfers in particular will find there is plenty here to keep them happy. And those who would just like to relax can admire the fabulous contrast between the red cliffs and the crystal clear water.

    • Izaña Observatory

      The world of stars
      The observatory at an altitude of 2400 metres is a must for stargazers. The Canary Islands are among those regions in the world where the light conditions are largely unaffected by other influences, which means it is really worth having a look at the world of the stars. The probability of seeing something very interesting in front of the lens of one of the many telescopes in the observatory is large. Book in advance.
