Easter Island

Easter Island or Rapa Nui, lost in the South Pacific Ocean, is located 3700 km off the shore of Chilli. Since its discovery on the famous Easter day in 1722, the island fascinates the traveller with the Moai statues, symbol of the Island. The history and the origin of the people who erected these monumental stone statues, is until today an unresolved mystery which has generated a lot of different, more and less scientific hypothesis. Sculpted in volcanic stone, the statues stand on platforms and have been laid for most of them close to the coast giving their back to the ocean. The professional guide of Explora, our luxurious Easter Island hotel, offers a wide range of excursions aimed at making you feel the uniqueness of this mysterious island and its majestic Moai statues.
