Easter Island, Chile-port

Easter Island was given its name by the Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen, who encountered the island on Easter Sunday, 1722. Although a Polynesian island in southeastern Pacific Ocean, it is an overseas territory of Chile. Easter Island is famous for its mysterious, monumental statues, called moai, created by the Rapanui people. A total of 887 monolithic stone statues have been inventoried. The native islanders who carved them used only stone hand chisels, mainly basalt toki, which still lay in place throughout the island.

    Climb to the top of Easter Island's highest volcanic peak for an amazing view of the surrounding terrain and upon descending explore a collection of giant moai statues.

    Depart from the pier and drive toward the center of the island, a grassland that was a sheep ranch in the 19th century. Here, you'll leave your van behind and begin your ascent of Ma'unga Terevaka, a volcanic peak that rises 1,969 feet above sea level. Formed approximately 240,000 years ago by a series of eruptions, it's the youngest volcano on Easter Island.

    Your trek to the top will take about an hour and a half, including stops for photos. The higher you climb, the more spectacular the views. From the top, you can see the three corners of triangular-shaped Easter Island and several other dormant volcanic peaks. The sea stretches uninterrupted in every direction, as the island is one of the most remote on earth, lying 2,000 miles west of the Chilean coast.

    The trek down is a bit faster and brings you to Ahu Akivi, the site of seven towering moai statues that were erected around 1,400 AD. The statues are the only ones on the island facing the ocean and overlook a village that's now in ruins. Over time, the moais also fell into a state of disrepair, and it wasn't until 1960 that American archaeologist William Mulloy restored them to their original places using a stone ramp and wooden levers. Following your exploration of Ahu Akivi, you'll drive back to the pier.
