Spain – Teide National Park

The Canary Islands is a popular tourist destination in Spain. It is composed of seven main islands which are frequently visited by tourists all year round. Located 100 km just west of Morocco, this place is on the bucket list of most travelers.

The archipelago boasts of natural attractions, stunning beaches, impressive volcanic landscapes, and world heritage sites. With a subtropical climate, the islands have warm winters and long summers which is the perfect destination for an ideal holiday vacation.

Here are five places in the Canaries that you shouldn’t miss when visiting.

Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote

A visit to the Timanfaya National Park is an otherworldly experience. Once you set your eyes on this natural attraction, you’ll feel like you’re on another planet. The park boasts of numerous amazing shows most of which require no effects and are merely natural which range from a dry bush catching fire in an instant upon touching the ground and water turning to steam. The park also has a restaurant that cooks food using heat from the volcano.
