Walking on the Moon around Teide

Walking on the Moon around Teide

Once in the Teide National Park, at 2200m above sea level, we walk inside a huge volcanic caldera that has become an extraordinary and famous valley. We continue along a path at the foot of the huge stratovolcano Teide, the roof of Spain and the Atlantic Ocean, which at 3715m is also the third largest underwater volcano in the world. We can also admire its predecessor, which last erupted in 1798 in the National Park: Pico Viejo (3135m). Crossing the lava fields, we will learn to distinguish the different types of volcanic material, while experiencing an impressive landscape of domes, rocks, pitons, huge craters, petrified lava waterfalls, colossal chimneys and an incredible lunar landscape. This natural area was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007 and has been the setting for famous science fiction films. We will observe the unique endemic flora and fauna adapted to the extreme climatic conditions. At the end of the walk, we will exchange photos and impressions of this fantastic place that takes us to other worlds. Don’t miss this unique experience designed by your local expert guide in the Teide National Park!
