Canary Islands 2013 - Tenerife continued.

Our tour took us on to Mt. Teide and the National Park.
Mount Teide is a volcano on Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Its 3,718-metre summit is the highest point in Spain and the highest point above sea level in the islands of the Atlantic.

Above the clouds!

Tenerife is also home to one of the world’s most advanced astronomical observatories - the Teide Observatory - from which the entire northern hemisphere and part of the southern hemisphere can be viewed.

Some rock formations in the National Park.

A quick stop at a town on the way back to the ship. Bought some lovely banana body butter there!

Note the black volcanic sand on the beach.

We left there for our next port of call, Arrecife on Lanzarote.
