Easter Island, Chile
Easter Island’s inhabitation has baffled anthropologists for centuries. The volcanic formation rises abruptly from the infinite South-Pacific Ocean, redefining the sense of distance, mystery and wonder of all who visit its shores.
At Explora, there are over 30 different guided hikes, bike rides, snorkeling and scuba diving explorations to immerse yourself in Easter Island. All our explorations are in small groups, have difficulty levels ranging from easy to expert, and have different durations, half day or full day.
