Easter Island Tour

Archeological Wonders: Easter Island (4 days/3 nights)
From $809 €709 £568
Easter Island Tour, Chile Travel, Chile For Less

Easter Island is both a nature and culture lover’s dream island getaway. Lying in the Pacific Ocean just south of the Tropic of Capricorn and almost 2,500 miles (4,000 km) west of Chile’s coast, Easter Island is one of the world’s most famous archeological sites and a truly magical place that will leave the traveler amazed.

The mystery of Easter Island and its indigenous inhabitants, the Rapa Nui, have intrigued travelers and archaeologists for many years. One of the most isolated places on earth, this tiny speck of land is blessed with an extraordinary collection of archaeological sites, including the iconic moai, scattered amidst an eerie landscape. These enigmatic statues, standing like mute witnesses of the island’s tragic and fascinating past, form one of Rapa Nui's most enduring images.

This triangular island, with an extinct volcano at each corner, used to be called “the navel of the world” by its first inhabitants. Walk up to the myriad ahu (ceremonial altars) where you can admire some of the 600 or so moai figures representing the deified ancestors of the Rapa Nui people.

The island’s famous moai sculptures are of course what come to mind first when picturing Easter Island, but they are far from being the only attraction the island has to offer. Here you will find more than 20,000 archaeological sites and a rich culture, as well as dramatic views of volcanic craters, scuba diving in crystalline waters, and white-sand beaches.

Itinerary and Prices

Day 1: Arrival to Easter Island

A Chile For Less Representative will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your comfortable Easter Island hotel to relax and enjoy the afternoon at your leisure.

Day 2: Easter Island Cultural Tour

After a delicious breakfast at your hotel, you will depart for a half-day excursion to Ahu Tahai and the Anthropological Museum. Ahu Tahai is the site on the western shores of the island where the moais show unusual and unique characteristics.  One moai has eyes and a topknot for example. Another interesting feature is that while most moai are similar in size and shape, these moais vary significantly.  This presents an interesting puzzle for archeologists who try to decipher the reason these statues show different characteristics from both one another and all other moai.  On your way back to your hotel, you will stop at the anthropological museum which has excellent descriptions of island life both historically and today.

In the afternoon you will visit Ahu Akivi, Puna a Pau, and the cave Te Pahu.  Ahu Akivi is another unique ahu composed of seven moai. Whereas most moai are located along the coast with their backs to the sea, these moai are located inland and face the sunset.  The site offers sweeping views of the western part of the island and is a perfect spot to photograph both the moais and the island landscapes.

From here you will head to Puna Pau, a small quarry located on the outskirts of the principal quarry on Easter Island, and the sole source of the red scoria rock that they used to make the topknots for the moai. After you visit the quarry, you will head to the caves where the island’s inhabitants once lived.  The caves are actually hollowed out empty lava tubes and are pretty sizable. In the early evening you will return to your hotel to relax and spend the evening as you wish.

Day 3: Rano Raruku Volcano Tour

After a hearty breakfast you will depart for Rano Raruku Volcano, on the southern tip of the island.  The volcano’s crater is full of pooled rain water and lush vegetation and is easily the most beautiful on the island. The rock quarry on the outer edges of the crater offers some of the most striking views on the entire island. From here you can walk to the quarry where almost 400 moai lie scattered across the verdant hills.

From here, you will head to the largest ahu on the island, Ahu Tongariki where 15 moai face the sunset. These statues were originally toppled during the civil wars on the island when rival clans competed for resources.  A tsunami in the 20th century swept across the island and moved the moai inland, but they have since been restored and re-erected.

After you enjoy your bagged lunch, you will descend down from the hills and visit the white coral sand beach of Anakena.  There are two ahus here, one with a single moai and one with six. Anakena is one of the two beaches on all of Easter Island and an important spot for the Birdman rituals. You will return to your hotel in the early evening to relax after your long day exploring Easter Island.

Day 4: Departure from Easter Island

After breakfast you will be picked up at your hotel and transferred to the airport for your flight back to mainland Chile or to your next destination.
