Scattered 300 miles across the Atlantic Ocean lie Spain's Canary Islands. This volcanic archipelago is quite diverse due to the age difference among the islands. The largest of the seven Canary Islands is Tenerife. It is approximately 790 square miles in size and dominated by Mount Teide, the highest peak on Spanish territory. Called the "Island of Eternal Spring" by the locals, Tenerife offers idyllic weather, fragrant fruit trees and charming locals.
