The island is almost like a mirage. You fly over 3500km above the sea and suddenly, from nowhere you see this impressive view: The island, isolated from the rest of the world...Then you wonder what's in there that makes it so special... and as you walk around the island the gigantic moais having the blue sea behind them and that...

Give yourself at least a week to explore the island, it takes so long to get here you might aswell stay for a decent length of time. Lan Chile is the only airline to fly here, it is usually a stopping off point between Chile and Tahiti. Besides all the statues to view, there is horse riding and some of... More

I spent 5 days traveling around Easter Island - sometimes I went with a private guide/driver with 1-3 other guests, while other times I took a bicycle and rode around the island. The moai scattered around the island are mysterious, awe-inspiring and surreal. From the fifteen standing moai at Ahu Tongariki to the moai 'birthplace' along the slopes of the... More

Here is one of the few places, where you can roam free and be away from civilazation. The scattered maoi statues are truly unique and awespiring. TIP: The whole deal about the entrance ticket works as follow, upon arrival you are expected to purchase a ticket as permit for the entire island. With the ticket you are allowed up to... More

We did a 'sail-by' scenic cruise of Easter Island as part of the 2014 world cruise on Queen Victoria. This was one of the much anticipated highlights and although it was thrilling I have to admit that it was frustrating. I had a 300mm zoom lens and even with that my shots of the Moai were disappointing. Ok - what... More

We just got back from a 4 night stay on Easter Island. Our only mistake was to be there on Easter Sunday. The resort was short staffed and meal time service was not up to par. A neat thing about being there on Easter was the beach was atypically alive with people and the Moai there made a great contrast... More

We flew from Santiago for 5.5 hours to reach Easter Island. The time and money was well worth the effort if you love history, especially that which has some mystery remaining. We visited many Moi's, standing and down, Our guide had an enormous amount of information to share and the island itself is very beautiful. It was a highlight of... More

Easter Island was a beautiful, relaxing location that I suggest everyone must see! If you have a chance to go, TAKE IT!! It was the highlight of our trip to South America. Be sure to talk to the locals on the island in order to get the true experience of how mystical the island really is. Check out some pictures... More
