Tenerifes’s exclamation mark


The Canary Islands hold their position as a popular winter destination. Gran Canaria is at the top of the booking figures, with Tenerife coming a good fourth. Tenerife is the Flash editor’s first choice amongst the Canaries, mainly owing to Teide, which rises up over the Atlantic like a 3,718 metre exclamation mark. Teide is the world’s third highest volcano, with a cable car going almost all the way to the top. You need special permission to go to the very top. If you’re planning on making a trip up, avoid weekends and make sure to get there early before the queues get too long.

  Charter operators sell trips to Teide but it is better to hire a car and drive through the national park to the exciting northern part of the island. When passing Los Rodeos airport, eleven kilometres from the capital, Santa Cruz, spare a thought for the victims of the world’s worst air disaster. 583 of 644 passengers on board died when two Boeing 747’s, one from Pan Am and one from KLM, collided on the ground on the 27th of March 1977.
