Easter Island

Chile

4 days

Summary

Come and discover mythical Rapa Nui (also known as Easter Island), a Chilean island steeped in Polynesian traditions. Located more than 3,500km off Chile’s coast it is one of the world’s most remote and unique destinations.

During your stay you will see some of the most impressive moai and the quarries from which they were carved. These giant stone statues were carved hundreds of years ago and weigh up to 13 tons. Even today it remains a mystery how they were moved across the island, and what their purpose was.

Of course, you would know Rapa Nui for its famous moai. But did you know about the fascinating Tapati festival the island hosts each year? This is one of the most spectacular cultural festivals in Latin America and a photographer’s dream come true. Ask our expert consultants about timing your visit to coincide with this colourful event.
