Easter Island An island of mystery with unusual statues called Moais lies 2,500 miles from the Chilean coast. Easter Island, or Rapa Nui is most notable for the ancient culture that once lived there, and mysteriously disappeared, leaving behind the statues. More than 800 of these Moai still dot the landscape - some have been reconstructed; others lay in rubble. The only town on the island is Hanga Roa where most of the island's 5,000 inhabitants live. The island itself is 15 miles long and 8 miles wide. Easter Island is a unique destination, and you will not be disappointed.Includes:
  • Roundtrip Airport Transfers
  • 3 Nights Accommodations
  • Guided Tours
  • Rapa Nui National Park Fee
  • Daily Breakfast

Next the excursion proceeds to the western sector of the island to the slopes of Rano Kau Volcano. From the viewpoint you can look down into the enormous crater of Rano Kau, 656 feet deep with a diameter that is almost a mile wide. And from this vantage point, the ruins of the ceremonial village of Orongo can be viewed. We continue to Hanga Roa to visit the Sabastian Englert Anthropological Museum, which displays objects, graphics and drawings about the Rapa Nui Culture. Next the tour continues to Ahu Akivi, an archaeological site dated at around 1460 AD, well known for its seven spectacular statues restored by William Mulloy in the 1960's. Continue to the archaeological site of Puna a Pau Quarry where the red hats and topknots (Pukao) of the moai were carved from red scoria, a type of iron-rich volcanic stone.Centrally Located Hotel In Easter Island, (B)Day 3 Easter IslandAfter breakfast, depart for a full day excursion (box lunch included). Begin with a visit to Ahu Vaihu, an ancient archaeological site with its eight moai in ruins. Continue to Ahu Akahanga, The Platform of the King, a large stone platform and four fallen moai. The tour continues past La Perousse Bay to several ceremonial sites considered to be among the most relevant archaeological ruins on Easter Island. The first of these, Ahu Hekii, is the largest in displacement, squares and platforms. It measures 32 feet in length, and weighs up to 90 tons, making it the largest moai to be raised onto a platform. The tour resumes to Anakena Beach. This is the only beach on the island that has a grove of coconut trees, and it is a popular tourist spot due to its crystalline emerald green waters and white sand beach.Centrally Located Hotel In Easter Island, (B)Day 4 Easter IslandTransfer to the airport for your return flight to Santiago.
