The Mount Teide is a big volcano in the island of Tenerife. The Pico del Teide (Teide Peak) is the biggest part of the volcano complex that includes the Montaña Blanca and Pico Viejo. This Volcano is the third highest in the planet and it has the highest peak in Spain with 3718 meters. The Teide was designated as the Decade Volcano by the United Nations.

The singular name of this natural formation derives from the Guanche Language that means “hell” in English and “infierno” in Spanish. According to local legends, there is an evil and destructor Guatoya spirit inside the volcano.

Tedie - Tenerife The Volcano is in the middle of the stunning, dramatic and most popular place in Tenerife: Teide National Park. This natural area in the island possesses a vast area of 18900 hectares; that is perfect for many outdoor sports such as hiking and trekking.

Additionally, travelers can see other interesting features such as rock formations and a different and small volcano called Pico Viejo that is 3,135 meters high. Many local and foreign people choose to visit Teide. In fact, as reported by the ISTAC (Instituto Canario de Estadistica), the Teide Mount receives approximately 2.8 million travelers each year.
