Hike to the top of Mount Teide Welcome to Tenerife! This year I decided to spend 6 weeks living here close by this beautiful park and I got to explore the island quite a bit When most people think of the Canary Islands they think that you can only find sun and beaches here but there is much much more than that here The people in Santa Cruz in the north are very friendly and the nightlife is really lively But the best part for me was hiking up to the peak of mount Teide I was lucky enough to go along with some local islanders! This was our first stop along the way at an altitude of 2,000m which meant that we were driving well above the clouds Here we are! We did run into a problem along the way when the car broke down but we managed to hitched a ride up to the car park at the base of the hiking trek now at 2,350m altitude The rest of the way up would be on foot. After hiking up 500m we stopped for a bite to eat and to enjoy the views but we soon continued on! After about 4 hours hiking we finally made it to the refuge at dusk It was time to rest we had already hiked up almost 1,000m We had to get up at 5am to make sure we wouldn't miss the sunrise from the top The hike in pitch-black was dangerous and cold and there still quite a bit ahead of us But eventually, just as the sun was rising... we made it!! The peak is at an altitude of 3,718m and is the world's third largest volcano The cable car shook a little bit on the way down and someone got a fright! Another unforgettable experience!! But it was time to go home...
