Located in the island of Tenerife, in the Canarias Island of Spain, the curvy TF-21 is one of the most spectacular roads in Europe.
The scenic TF-21 is totally paved and crosses the island from corner to corner. It’s extremely curvy, with hundreds of turns, running across the scenic Teide National Park. With a little off-road lane, you can get 2.700m and approaching a little more to the Teide peak, a stratovolcano that, at 3.718 m, is the highest peak on Spanish soil.
TF-21 is an absolutely beautiful road, with many different turns and twists, almost without traffic. It’s 79.3 km (49.27 miles) long, and runs south-north from Granadilla de Abona to La Orotava.
It’s a high mountain road, topping out at 2.361m (7,746ft) above the sea level. It’s one of the highest roads of Spain. In winters it can be closed due to hail and icy patches. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 2 and 2.5 hours. However, due its beauty the drive will take much longer.
