Midway between Tahiti and Chile; Easter Island has long been subject to much speculation and inquisitive research. How and why did its people carve out, move and erect hundreds of giant stone Moai statues on the most isolated island on earth? It is home to a culture whose origins and evolution are still largely unknown. Easter Island today remains one of the most unique places on the planet; it is an open air museum showcasing truly incredible landscapes – volcanic craters, lava formations, pristine beaches, brilliant blue water, and archaeological sites. The sub-tropical Polynesian island has been part of Chile since 1888.
