Arrival on Easter Island
Flying from Santiago it’ll take you around 5 hours to get to Polynesia’s most south-easterly island; Easter Island. It’s one of the world’s most remote islands, thousands of kilometres away from any other inhabited area. It won’t be long before you get a taste of the laidback island atmosphere. You’ll be met and transferred to your posada just off of the Main Street of Hanga Roa, the island’s only town.
You’ll spend the next few nights at a modest hotel with comfortable rooms. The posada is surrounded by a tropical garden and has a swimming pool; an excellent place to recuperate from your travels through South America. At the end of the day you can watch a traditional entertainment whilst sipping on a tropical cocktail.
Easter Island - Free Time
Easter Island is dominated by the world-famous monolithic Moai, three large volcanoes and massive cliffs battered by relentless ocean waves. You’ll have two full days to explore the island and unravel its secrets. You could hire a car locally, giving you the freedom to see what you want. Climb volcanoes, relax on windswept beaches or learn all about the local legends.
Departure from Easter Island
After breakfast and a quick dip in the pool, this Easter Island trip will come to an end. Most travellers fly back to Santiago and then fly home from there. If you don’t fly home until evening you’ll have the rest of the day to spend exploring the island.
