Rising out of the Atlantic Ocean in the Canary Islands is Mount Guajara, with its sheer rock faces.

Mount Guajara is the third-highest peak on the island of Tenerife, measuring 2,718 meters above sea level.

Tenerife is synonymous with sun and sea, yet its wild and natural landscapes also include moon-like deserts, ancient lava flows and lush green forest.

The turret-shaped dormant volcano has 3 sheer cliffs, but we’ll take the north face route to ascend the summit.

The exhilarating route offers breathtaking views down into the crater, called Las Canadas.

The summit is home to an abandoned building that was one of the first ever high altitude observatories in the world to view the stars.

Our descent will bring us back to the southern coast which presents a different panoramic view of the waters.

The hike should take approximately 5 hours to complete along a 10-kilometer trail.

There are 168 plant species that blanket the slopes of Teide with 33 species being endemic to Tenerife.
