TENERIFE

 

Tenerife is a volcanic island formed in the late Tertiary Age. In the center of the island, the impressive cone of Teide (3,718 m) rises up over the Caldera de Las Cañadas, forming the highest point of Spain. The rugged island terrain and the variety of climates has produced a territory of many different landscapes and forms, from the Teide National Park to Los Gigantes Cliffs with their vertical walls, with semi-desert areas with their drought-resistant plants in the south, valleys of tropical and sub-tropical crops, areas of laurel forests in the Anaga and Teno massifs and large areas of pine forest above the laurel forests relicts of the Tertiary Age. The wide variety of climates and landscapes in Tenerife is matched by a wealth of ecosystems, each with its own characteristic flora and fauna.

 

The Island´s climate is mild due to the prevailing winds, the island orography and the cold Canary current. There are no seasons of extreme cold or suffocating heat. Average temperatures fluctuate between 17º and 18º C in winter, up to 24º or 25º C in summer. These relative and general values are especially applicable in coastal areas where most of the tourist resorts are sited.

 

Despite its small size (2,034 Km2), Tenerife has a surprisingly rich biological diversity due to its special climate. The abundance of micro-climates and natural habitats is clearly reflected in the rich and varied vegetation to be found on the island: 1400 species of higher plants, including 140 species endemic to Tenerife.
