Teide National Park, Tenerife

Teide National Park, Tenerife, Spain’s tallest mountain, which rises spectacularly from the island of Tenerife, is surrounded by the lava fields of the collapsed cone of an earlier volcano.

It is a strangely exhilarating place, popular for fashion shoots and films about prehistoric monsters, including Planet of the Apes (1968).
Snowcapped for much of the year, the peak is not all desolate: Teide broom and other brilliant flowers bloom with the first rains of spring.
