Easter Island Tours Overview

Why Easter Island: This is one of the most unique places on earth, due to its isolation and the spectacular archaeological remains of a mysterious lost civilisation.

Culture: Easter Island is best known for its gigantic stone monoliths, known as moai, that dot the coastline. In addition to the statues, the islanders possessed the Rongorongo script, the only written language in Oceania. Easter Island is also home to many petroglyphs (rock carvings), as well as traditional wood carvings, tapa (barkcloth) crafts, tattooing, string figures, dance and music.

When to Go: A mild year-round climate provides ideal conditions for exploring the island on foot or by bicycle. Expect more rainfall from Apr – May. The island is best visited as a stopover between Chile and Australia.

Combine With: The Chilean mainland, which offers diverse cultures and a wealth of varied landscapes, from the surreal salt flats and lakes of the altiplano (high plains) and the Atacama Desert to the glacial lakes and snow-capped mountains of Patagonia.

Getting There: Fly from Santiago, Chile to Hanga Roa on Easter Island
