Easter Island

one of the most remote and inaccessible places in the world

Lying many miles off the coast of Chile in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is the eerie Easter Island. It’s one of the most remote and inaccessible places in the world, famed for its enigmatic stone statues that stand on huge stone pedestals.

Easter Island – or Rapa Nui – is one of the world’s most intriguing destinations, and a worthy addition to your Chile itinerary. This Polynesian volcanic island is rich in culture, archeological wonders and at the same time shrouded in mystery.

Here you’ll find hundreds of Moai – huge carved statues with oversized heads that stand proudly on stone platforms known as Ahu. No one is quite sure who erected these monolithic statues and why, lending the island a mysterious and mystical quality. Watching the sun set over the iconic heads is a spellbinding experience and an unmissable photographic opportunity.

Explore the island with an expert local guide who will show you around the various archeological sites and help to unlock the secrets of their history. You’ll also be able to learn about the lifestyle and culture of the ancient Polynesians.

Aside from the Moai, the island is dotted with a handful of wild beaches and looming volcanoes which you can climb. There’s also fantastic diving and snorkeling thanks to the rich waters of the Pacific.
