There are many attractions and activities that may lure people to Tenerife for a holiday, but climbing Spain's highest peak is perhaps not often one.
However, that is just what is on offer on the island off Africa's west coast, explains TNT magazine.
Mount Teide, standing 3,718m tall, is the centre of a "superlative hiking country" full of challenges and rewarding sights.
The magazine advises the trip from bottom to top will take about five hours and is best enjoyed at sunrise, so spending the night up the mountain is recommended.
It is worth noting Tenerife can enjoy some "bizarre" weather changes, so patience may be required in order to take in the "incredible view" that is promised on a clear day.
The Telegraph recently highlighted a holiday in Tenerife as one of the top options for people seeking guaranteed sun during the next few months, with the Canaries one of few destinations that are only a short-haul flight from the UK and warm during winter.
