Chile: Easter Island

Visit Us

Easter Island (Rapa Nui) really is a unique place. Chilean territory but isolated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this tiny pimple of volcanic origin, first populated by Polynesians from the west, has become a mesmeric destination for visitors. Once densely forested and fertile, the rugged, hilly island supported a prosperous population which sculpted the island’s enigmatic moai, or giant stone heads. The landscape is now covered by rocky, treeless and unproductive grasslands, beautiful in its gaunt and haunting way, and the coast is defined by rocky coves and the occasional sparkling white beach.

The hike to Hanga Oteo, the longest trek at 13.5km, viewing ahu platforms and toppled moai en route.

What our experts say

The magic of Easter Island starts the moment you step off the plane: it feels incredibly remote. A favourite location of mine is Ahu Akivi where you can find seven moai facing out to sea (unlike the others, which face inland).
