Get to know Easter Island with Viator

The statues on Easter Island—monumental human figures with oversized heads called moai—offer an uncanny presence. The island, known as Rapa Nui to native inhabitants, is a speck of volcanic land in Polynesia, but technically part of Chile thousands of miles from the mainland. Almost 1,000 mystic archeological sites dot the island, as do small-scale, eco-friendly tourism opportunities: Think surfing, diving, hiking, and horseback riding.
