Easter Island - or Rapa Nui as it is known locally - is a small triangle of volcanic rock in mid-Pacific, around 3,800kms off the Chilean coast, some five hours flying time from Santiago.
The island and its mysterious stone faces have always been the subject of intense curiosity and speculation. Where did the islanders come from? How did they transport the massive moai from their quarry to their current locations? All of these and so many more are questions that remain unanswered.
A stay here will include a visit to some of the numerous moais that cover the island. A visit to Easter Island can easily be added on to any trip to mainland Chile.
