Day 2: Easter Island.

Unravel the enduring mysteries of Easter Island, the most remote inhabited island in the world, on your guided tour. Hike to the volcanic crater of Rano Raraku, where hundreds of monolithic statues (moai) were carved. Marvel at the haunting yet sublimely beautiful works of art, some standing, some fallen, some unfinished. Continue to the majestic platform of Ahu Tongariki to see the line of moai looking inland towards the hills. Then, admire the largest moai ever erected – a towering figure carved out of volcanic rock. Later, stroll along the soft white sands of Anakena.
