Waves crash onto a beach behind a collection of arresting monuments, at a location now understood to have once been the domain of ancient royalty. Welcome to mysterious Easter Island.
Explore archeological sites with a private guide, seeking clues about the island’s history.
See the defiant work of the Rapa Nui at an unrestored platform, where a few of the island’s famous moai lie toppled over from centuries of neglect. Investigate where these monolithic monuments came from at Rano Raraku Volcano, the moai “factory.” Investigate the quarry where moai were sculpted and where hundreds of moai, in various states of completion, reside to this day.
Marvel at the eminence of the culture that constructed these relics, one of which is 21-meters high.
