Mount Teide
Wherever you visit on Tenerife, the enormous Mount Teide looms in the distance, often with snow on the peak which is sometimes hard to comprehend when you are baking by the pool.

The Jardin Botanico (botanical gardens) in the northern town of Puerto de la Cruz have a wonderful selection of tropical fauna from around the world.

Tenerife Jeep Safaris
There are many quad or jeep safaris offered at various places on the island, some are certainly not for the timid or younger children so visitors should check prior to booking them. Some are even offered on the higher slopes and old lava fields of Mount Teide so do not forget to take something warm to wear as it can get very cold up there.

Tenerife Museums
There are many local museums throughout the island or try a visit to the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife for the Museum of Natural and Human History.
