“Great experience in the morning: Hiked up all the way to the top of Mount Teide, Spain's tallest peak (3,718 m / 12,220 ft) on the Canary Island of Tenerife. Sunrise at 7:58 am was absolutely stunning!!! We started the tour at 2:45 am in total darkness at 2,220 m / 7,220 ft above sea level. Quite a lovely hike - apart from the last bit which is very steep and quite challenging at this altitude. -10°C / 14°F at top. Back at sea level now with lovely 21°C / 70°F. Full disclosure: I was totally wrecked and so unable to move..”

Today the elephants' number in their hundreds, thanks to the efforts of the National Parks Board. Their tours concentrate on finding and viewing elephants, buffalo, rhino and lions.”

“Timanfaya is the symbol of Lanzarote. You can drive through the park many landscapes with your car on the normal road (dir. Yaiza). If you have more time, you can book a guided tour in the very heart of the national park (very touristic so expect a lot of people). You will have to leave your car at the entrance and join the tour's bus through the moon-like lava and the vulcano's calderas. Note it is not allowed to walk/hike/bike in that part of the park.”

“ White Mountains’ National Park is the only national park in Crete. It centres around the Samaria Gorge, at an altitude of 1.200m and continues down to Ayia Roumeli, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Along with the surrounding slopes and a number of smaller gorges branching off from it, Samaria Gorge forms the whole of the area designated as a national park, a status that offers protection to over 450 species of plant and animal, 70 of which are endemic to Crete. In the prefecture of Chania, the Samaria Gorge is the longest in Europe (total length 16km), and one of the most impressive gorges in Greece. Visitors can descend into the gorge and walk for about 6 to 8 hours. Even though the path runs downhill it requires strong, comfortable footwear and some degree of physical fitness. But it’s well worth the effort. At the end of the path, swimming, taverna lunches and picnics under a canopy of trees within full view of the Mediterranean Sea all await you.”
