The Canary Islands bubbled up from an isolated hotspot, forming a chain of islands as the continental plate moved across it over several millions of years. The western part of the archipelago still boasts some impressive mountains.
Pico del Teide on Tenerife is the biggest of them all. Surrounded by a huge caldera, its peak juts up an astonishing 3718 metres into thin air. Its flanks are a volcanic playground, with a multitude of colourful cones and bizarre cathedral-like rock formations.
