Far from the well-known peaks and beaches of mainland Spain, the island of Tenerife is actually home to one of the most unlikely plethora of superlatives to be found within the county’s political borders: The Teide National Park. This sprawling area of nearly 200 square kilometres is not only Spain’s largest national park, but is also one of its oldest (inaugurated way back in 1954).
With Spain’s patchwork of geography, from the high Pyrenees and snowy Sierra Nevada at the roof of the country, to the dry straights of the Tabernas Desert or the undulating wooded hills of Asturias in the very heart of northern Galicia, it’s clear why there’s such an ongoing buzz about hiking holidays in this corner of Europe.
In the last few decades, Spain has emerged as one of the leading players in the European film industry, and with over 40 separate film festivals, gatherings and celebrations of all types on the calendar annually, the country now plays host to more cinema related events than most other nations on the continent.
