Tenerife island as a whole is a giant mountain which rises from the ocean floor up to 7500 meters. However, above the sea level, its highest point is Teide (or El Teide, 3718 m). The island belongs to Spain, and with such an altitude Teide is the highest Spanish peak, far exceeding the mountains on the mainland.
Canary Islands are a really cool place to visit and especially Tenerife with its hugely diverse landscape features. Clouds are always hanging on the mountain tips and almost every day there is a dense fog layer between the Teide volcano plateau and the lower, green side of the island. Sep 2010.
