At 3,718 meters, Pico del Teide is the highest point in Spain, and tourists can reach it by cable car.

During the last days of your trip, look back on the highlights while you relax on the beach or by your accommodation’s pool. Soak up the sun, unwind, and enjoy the hilly landscape before you fly back to your home country.
