Easter Island

Easter Island is one of those few places that throughout the world conjures up thoughts of exotic mysteries yet unsolved. Not only is it the most isolated inhabitant island in the world (3,500 km from Chile), it is also home to the fabulous Moai statues (over 800 of them!) that attest to the island’s glorious cultural past.

The island is nearly triangular, with only 20 km (12 miles) to a side, with most of the area covered by Rapa Nui National Park. There are less than 6000 inhabitants with over 60% descended from the original Polynesian people who colonized the island around 1000 AD after breathtakingly long ocean journeys from at least 2500 kilometers west. For the visitor the island offers much more than palm trees and lovely beaches. One can explore the island and its cultural treasures in organized tours with a variety of lodging options, from mid range to high end luxury.

Note: Austral Adventures can offer flight booking from Santiago – estimated costs are $USD 650-850 per person round trip.
