Reasons to Visit

Easter Island

In the South Pacific, some 2,500 miles from Chile, lies sub-tropical Easter Island, scattered with fascinating ahu platforms and moai stone statues, remnants of an ancient culture and dramatic history, culminating in extinction. 'Rapa Nui', the mystical and exotic Easter Island, is one of the world's most remote inhabited islands and is home to the unique Polynesian culture which created the 'moai'. These monolithic stone heads were carved by hand from the volcanic rock, and transported all around the island, placed on the coastline at ceremonial sites, facing inland. Although only a small island, there are many archaeological sites to visit, and visitors can learn all about the fascinating Rapa Nui culture and the history of the island.
