Highlights and product description overview
The remote Easter Island is famous for its 887 monumental statues called Moais. These giant human shaped stone monoliths are all that remains of a once thriving Polynesian culture that disappeared abruptly about 800 years ago. From the moment you get off the plane you start feeling the Island’s essence. The Moais are not the only attraction that draws visitors. The small island has several beautiful white sand beaches and the warm water of the Pacific is great for bodysurfing and diving. Rano Raraku is a volcanic crater which houses a fresh water lake and is the location where most of the stones were taken for construction of the Moais. The island hosts a network of caves some of which can be easily visited as well as some that can pose a challenge even for expert spelunkers. Beautiful rock art sites developed by the bird man culture also inform us of the early cultures for enthusiasts the island has 100’s of different sites to explore. This package includes a guide and transfers to all the key attractions plus plenty of time to explore the island on your own.
