Visited by millions of tourists annually from different corners of the world, Tenerife is the largest of all the seven Canary Islands of Spain. This is the island in the archipelago where tourists can have an exciting nightlife in the clubs and bars besides sunbathing on its sandy beaches. As you move beyond the tourist hotspots crowded with enthusiastic explorers and revellers, you'll find mesmerising mountain villages, ancient towns, and port settlements. If you're on the island during the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, you'll get the chance to witness one of the largest carnivals in the world that makes almost the entire capital city come alive with zestful celebrations.

Among them is Mount Teide National Park, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and houses a volcanic peak called Mount Teide. It is the highest mountain peak in Spain, with an altitude of more than 3,700 metres. If you like hiking, you can embark on an adventurous expedition to the base of its summit.
