About this trip

Few areas in the world possess a more mysterious pull than this tiny speck of land, - peppered with the most logic-defying statues on the planet – the strikingly familiar moai – Easter Island (Rapa Nui to its native Polynesian inhabitants) emanates a magnetic, mystical vibe.

Easter Island is much more than an open-air museum. Diving, snorkeling and surfing are fabulous. 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 sand beaches beckon. Although Easter Island is world famous and visitors are on the increase, everything remains small and personable – it's all about ecotravel. (Lonely Planet)

We begin our adventure in Santiago at the base of the Andes. Well known for its art and design, this metropolis provides an urban lifestyle in harmony with Chilean traditions. We get a flavor of the city and get to know each other at a group event on our first evening. A free day allows for tailor-made adventure, specifically for you...most difficult part is choosing what you want to do!

Onto Easter Island to explore this UNESCO World Heritage site in the South Pacific Ocean - one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world. The isolated island is some 2,300 miles from Chile’s west coast and 2,500 miles east of Tahiti - but a world all to itself.

With excursions and activities already included, you are sure to get the most out of your time on this island. But don't fret, there is still time to rest, relax and soak in the tropical climate or add a few more activities to customize your visit to your particular interests.

Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore this world-renowned destination few people will ever get to see!
