Tenerife is indeed a continent in miniature... and more. Bizarre natural rock formations have created a lunar landscape that will really make you feel as though you are walking on the moon.

Not a trip for the easily winded, but certainly worthwhile for any walking enthusiast. To get there, head towards mount Teide from Los Cristianos. Halfway to Teide you will encounter Spain's highest town 'Vilaflor'. At over 1400 metres above sea level, is a quiet town surrounded by pine trees and almond trees, with an outstanding typical architecture: the parish church and the old Palace of the Lords of this area of Tenerife.

About two kilometres beyond the town you turn right at an easily missed sign 'Lomo Blanco'. After a steady half hour drive along this dirt track you will encounter a sign 'Paisaje Lunar' (Lunar Landscape). Park your car and walk the rest of the way (40 minutes).

Take a snack and drinks with you and enjoy the surreal landscape. (Bear in mind that some car rental companies do not allow you to off-road)
