Easter Island Travel

Often referred to as the world's largest open-air museum, this remote island in the South Pacific boasts some of the world’s most fascinating archeological treasures scattered across stunning scenery.

“Easter Island is simply spellbinding and will take your heart and soul in only a few days. It is one of the most isolated inhabited places on earth, a tiny speck of land blessed with an extraordinary collection of archaeological sites, including the iconic Easter Island statues.”

As travelers wander this magical volcanic island surrounded by sea, it’s hard to believe that such a beautiful place could have been the setting for such a tragic and complex history.  The presence of the monolithic moai statues, silent witnesses to the devastating events that almost decimated the Rapa Nui civilization, is a constant reminder of the island’s unfortunate past.

Archaeologists believe the island was first settled by Polynesians who ventured across the Pacific sometime between 700 and 1200 AD.  The descendants of these early travelers created the famous moai statues, believing them to represent the living faces of their ancestors.

Overpopulation led to famine on Easter Island and resulted in war between the five clans that lived there as they struggled to obtain scarce resources.  At one point, the population was reduced to just over 100 inhabitants. With the creation of the cult of the bird man the war ended and the population slowly recovered.

The first Europeans landed on the island’s shores on Easter Sunday, 1722. Unfortunately, from this day forward, the sea brought one disaster after another to Rapa Nui.  Slave raiders and deadly diseases continuously invaded the island, and by the mid 1800s the population was again greatly reduced.

Today the island has just under 4,000 inhabitants, and the landscape, used mostly for agriculture and to preserve the national park, seems shrouded in mystery with its caverns and steep cliffs.  Travelers often describe Easter Island as hauntingly beautiful.

Set amidst this volcanic island rearing its head out of a vast and seemingly endless ocean, Easter Island is a culture zealot’s paradise. With archeological treasures, riveting volcano hikes, and striking beaches, Easter Island offers much to explore during your Chile travel.

Our trip was incredibly successful in three different countries: Chile, Brazil and Peru. And in every instance, the coordination of details and execution were impeccably accurate regardless of the country visited. Success at every stage was achieved regardless of location, the weather, the country and/or the time of day or night we traveled and were sight-seeing.

What to do in Easter Island

Rano Raraku Quarry: The highlight of any Easter Island tour is the enormous statues, known as moais, which lie scattered across the landscape. At the quarry, you can see over 300 moais in various stages of completion from a rough outline in the ground to the nearly finished product. It seems that the carvers simply laid down their tools one day, never to take them up again.

Some of the most unique statues on the island can be found here, at the place of their creation. A staggering sight is the statue that reaches as high as a 7-story building, and if you make your way to the south-eastern side of the quarry, you will discover moai Tukuturi, who is the only crouching moai on the island. Look closely and you will also see that he has a beard – another unique quality.

Orongo Ceremonial Village: Poised on the edge of the Rano Kau crater, looming above the Pacific, Orongo ceremonial village boasts one of the world’s most dramatic landscapes. Discover the petroglyph-covered altar at this central site of the former bird cult rituals performed in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the apex of cult ceremonies, young men raced to retrieve a Sooty Tern egg from the islets just offshore. The first to find an egg became bird man for the year.

Scuba Dive in Motu Nui: Motu Nui is the largest of the three islets found on Easter Island, and a great place to strap on your snorkel or scuba gear and dive into crystal clear blue waters.  With over 130 ft (40 meters) of visibility, comb the ocean floor and explore the wealth of fish, algae, rocks and coral in this diverse area. Glancing beyond the surface of the water back towards the island, you will marvel at the summit of a large volcanic mountain rising from the sea bed, looming above you in the background.

When to visit Easter Island

Easter Island is a great Chile travel destination any time of year. Peak tourist season runs from January to March which results in scarce accommodation and high prices. Book your Easter Island tour well in advance to experience the Tapati Rapa Nui ten-day festival, held in February, a fun celebration sharing history and culture. The rest of the year is less crowded, and at times you will feel like you have the whole island to yourself. July and August are the coolest months and make for spectacular hiking.
