There’s a world of difference in Tenerife
With its many different climate zones, Tenerife is like a mini continent.
Drive up towards Mount Teide and in just a few miles you will pass through several climate zones on your way to the 12,194ft summit of the highest mountain in Spain.
The peak of Teide (spanish: Pico del Teide), now a dormant volcano, is surrounded by the wild and rugged landscape of the Las Cañadas volcanic crater, some 30 miles in circumference.
From November to April, Teide is frequently capped by snow so anyone planning a trip there during these winter months should make sure they wear suitable clothing.
