EASTER ISLAND: The Rapa Nui Experience (4 to 7 days)
3,500 kilometres from the coast of South America you can find a tiny speck of land and one of the most remote but inhabited island of the world – Easter Island (Rapa Nui to its native Polynesian inhabitants).
Diving, snorkelling and surfing are fabulous around the island. On land, there’s no better eco-friendly way to experience the island’s savage beauty than on foot, from a bike saddle or on horseback. But if all you want to do is recharge the batteries, a couple of superb expanses of white or pink sand beaches beckon.
A unique landscape, Rapa Nui has an unparalleled mythical pull. Endowed with the most logic-defying statues in the world – the strikingly familiar moai – Rapa Nui emanates a magnetic, mysterious vibe. Submerge yourself in the history of a culture like no other that still keeps its traditions reflected in the cuisine, dances, ceremonies and language.
The first inhabitants of this magnetic territory, full of cliffs surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, green prairies and extinct volcanoes, arrived from Polynesia. The moais of Ahu Akivi, the only ones that look towards the sea, represent the seven explorers that, as the legend goes, were the first to arrive at the island.
We offer accommodation in a wide variety of small hotels. Contact us for a custom trip to this bucket list destination.
