About Tenerife

For most of us who know the island, the Teide National Park is the natural jewel par excellence of Tenerife. But it’s not the only one. Surrounding this volcanic landscape is another treasure, the Parque Natural de la Corona Forestal (Nature Reserve), a lush Canarian pine forest stretching in all its immensity over ravines and valleys. A spectacle of intense colors, ranging from the green of the pine trees, the blue of the sea and the sky, to the dark shades of the gigantic volcano.

And there is more. Such as the Macizo de Anaga (the Anagamassif), one of the seven Biosphere Reserves of the Canary Islands and habitat of laurel forests that have become extinct in most of the world, where natural and cultural values ​​coexist in perfect harmony. Or the Parque Rural de Teno, a landscape of difficult orography with impressive cliffs, valleys and wooded areas where the isolation has benefited the park by allowing valuable habitats to remain almost intact and serve as a refuge for endangered species. Rich natural landscapes that are also home to beautiful farms dedicated to agriculture and livestock.
