Rapa Nui, Isla de Pascua, or Easter Island, whatever name you choose to call it, this tiny, remote island will forever become part
of your memories.
Numerous archeological sites dot the island, some with the iconic moais, others are caves with ancient paintings
relating to the "Birdman" ceremonies, others, remnants of villages with foundations of the odd "boat house". Rock carvings and petroglyphs
abound, but even with these treasures, you'll still be mesmerized by the deep blue Pacific endlessly crashing against the black lava
cliffs. Combining walks and driving we'll share most of the island with you, from the village of Orango on the crater rim of volcanic
Rana Kau, to sandy Anakeena beach on the northern coast. Most of the 4000 residents live in the island's only town of Hanga Roa, but
you'll quickly notice that there are more horses than people in this place. Time moves at a different pace here and you'll be captivated
by this magical island.
Your tours will begin in Santiago, Chile, where you'll explore the city which is surrounded by the towering
Andes mountains, and then visit some of the most famous wineries in Chile. We'll take you to the Maipo canyon in the foothills of
the Andes to enjoy some of the spectacular scenery and trails, followed by a traditional Chilean BBQ at a local farmhouse.
Not to be
missed, you'll visit the coastal city of Valparaiso, steeped in history of the 18th and 19th centuries when it was the first stop
for those "coming around the Horn".
We can easily customize your tour with extensions to Patagonia or San Pedro de Atacama desert.
