Easter Island Extension

A Polynesian Cultural Adventure to One of the Planet's Most Intriguing World Heritage Sites
Alone in the Pacific 2,300 miles off the coast of Chile, Easter Island is the most isolated place of human habitation on earth. Its evocative past is full of mysteries that remain unsolved, such as who the first islanders were and how they got to this far-flung outpost in the middle of the ocean. Removed for centuries from the rest of the world, the people of Rapa Nui—as Easter Island is known to local residents— developed a distinctive culture whose most famous emblem is the moai, great stone figures with imposing human faces carved of volcanic rock. Hundreds of these monoliths dot the island, some in towering rows, others toppled and broken. The island’s modern name was bestowed by Dutch seafarer Jacob Roggeveen, who made landfall on Easter Day in 1722. Our flexible itinerary allows you to choose from an array of explorations—daily activities that unveil the island's treasures on foot, by bicycle or at sea.

Trip Highlights

  • In guided small groups, discover an island of mystery and legend that has intrigued anthropologists and historians for centuries
  • Explore ceremonial sites and mystical landscapes dotted with the imposing stone statues the island is famed for, called moai
  • Learn about Rapa Nui culture and meet today’s descendants of ancient Polynesian settlers who welcome us to their remote home
