Morning transfer from your hotel to the airport and flight to Easter Island, followed by a short transfer to your accommodations for the next three nights. Enjoy lunch at the hotel, before starting to explore Easter Island on your first included excursion. Dinner and overnight.
Day 3-5: Easter Island
Take the opportunity to relax at the hotel or choose from a variety of local trips visiting interesting sights related to the aboriginal Rapa Nui people. Discover the archeological complex Te Pito Kura, also called “The Navel of the World,” where a large, perfectly circular stone is said to be the epicenter of the planet's energy. Spend some time at Anakena, the main beach on Easter Island, where the first king of the island landed with his men. See the “Seven Explorers,” beautifully preserved Moai (monolithic human figures), and discover how the ancient islanders connected with celestial and astronomical events. Don't miss seeing the Moai during sunrise or sunset. The island also offers bicycle tours at your own pace or a guided hike to the volcano that formed the island millions of years ago.
