Tenerife

The Canary islands are 7 small volcanic islands, located nearby Morocco. Tenerife is the largest of them.

Visited above all for seaside tourism, Tenerife is however a great place for hiking! Many trails allow you to discover amazing landscapes, dominated by Mount Teide, the 3rd largest volcano in the world from its base culminating at 3.700 meters above sea level.
