Easter Island & Robinson Crusoe Island
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.
Also pertaining to Chile and laying in the South Pacific Ocean is the beautiful Robinson Crusoe Island known for its tranquility and the kindness of its people. It is the second largest of the Juan Fernandez Islands and was once the preferred haven for pirates and buccaneers. In 1704 the English seafarer Alexander Selkirk lived on the island for over 4 years, inspiring Daniel Defoe to write his famous novel “The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe” in 1719. Centuries later, in 1977 the island was declared a National Park and World Biosphere Reserve due to its unique flora and fauna. Currently the island offers “off the beaten track” experiences, and stunning views.
