Rapa Nui is beautiful. I made the tour in the island by bike and by car. The first and the second day I used a bike to visit the main points but I used a car to do the see the volcanos and anakena beach. The only thing that I have to complain is the prices. Everything is very expensive... More

It is absolutely a must see if on the island. There are two main areas for the parl. You can get tickets at the airport (but no one has money then) or at the park office at Orongo, but not at the main park, which is silly. They do check your tickets, and you fill out a book that asks... More

Easter Island is absolutely worth visiting, but for some unknown reason there are no seats or benches near any of the sites. The ground is volcanic rocks with grass growing between them, so in photos it appears as if one can sit down, but that is not the case. The statues are impressive, and warrant sitting and communing with, but... More

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
