Exotic Adventures on Easter Island

For the truly adventurous, we offer an in-depth exploration of Easter Island. This far flung island in the South Pacific is a great destination for a hike-bike-relax vacation. Over 2000 miles from the nearest population center, Easter Island has long attracted and intrigued visitors with its iconic giant moai statues. But this remote island with its quirky landscape also offers great opportunities for active exploration. We will hike, bike and explore one of the most fascinating archeological sites in the world. As with all of our adventure tours we offer the active experiences that bring us closer to the environment, but we won't be surprised if the laid back attitude of the Rapa Nui people may occasionally tempt us to slow down the pace and enjoy the scenery.

Easter Island is a volcanic island of some 67 square miles. It consists mainly of three extinct volcanoes: each at one of the points of this triangular island. Terevaka, the highest at an altitude of 507 meters, forms the bulk of the island with Poike and Rano Kau at the eastern and southern headlands. Along the miles of coastline are the ahus or platforms which host the great moai statues with their arresting presence and brooding faces. We will explore the island and its culture, then relax and respect the tradition of island time.

Easter Island Gay Adventure Tour Itinerary

Note that the Tapati Festival tour in February 2018 includes two additional nights. Our group will enjoy the activities listed in the below itinerary, as well as attend cultural events, parties, and soak in a festive, fun group atmosphere!

Day 1 - Arrival
Easter Island dancerMost travelers will arrive on the same flight from Santiago, Chile to Easter Island. Our luggage will be transported to our hotel, but we will stretch our legs after the long flight with a short walk to our nearby accommodations. Easter Island is a place like no other, and rushing is not in order, so we will begin with a leisurely walk to get the stiffness out of our legs and begin to experience the island's magic. Tonight we will enjoy a Welcome Dinner with typical island fare.

 

Days 2 - 5 - Mysteries Abound!
Easter Island gay tripWe begin our gay adventure on Easter Island with a hiking tour behind the airport on the rugged volcanic slopes of Rano Kau, one of the three volcanic peaks that command the corners of this triangular island. We'll visit the cave paintings of Ana Kai Tangata and the Orongo ceremonial village that sits atop the outer rim of the volcano, high above the crashing waves of the ocean. The archeological artifacts here are from the "Birdman" cult, rather than the famous moai's that we will see in so many other parts of the island. Across the waves are the two largest of the five satellite islands around Easter Island, Motu Nui and its smaller sibling, Motu Iti. To win the annual Birdman title for his clan, a young man had to climb down the cliff from the Orongo village, swim across the narrow, turbulent passage to these islands, then be the first to return with an intact egg of the sooty tern.

The next morning a bike ride is in order, so after breakfast we check out our bikes and get oriented to the layout of the town. We can head out of town along the coast and check out Tahai and Tepeu, two of the famous ahus (archeological sites). We may also pop into the museum, if there's time. A picnic is always fun, and lunch at the cave at Ana Te Pahu would be a good location. We could then continue on to Akivi and Puna Pau (more Moai, each in a unique setting!), and coast back to the island's only village, Hanga Roa.

Easter Island beachOn one of our excursions we will head to Anakena Beach at the far end of the island. This small beach is one of only two actual beaches along an otherwise rocky coastline. Weather conditions permitting, you may be able to get into the water for a bit before our barbecue lunch in the shadow of one of the island's more picturesque moai platforms.

With nearly 800 Moai to observe from bikes, on foot or from our van, we'll head home with amazing memories of this unique place with its mysterious past.

One of the joys of Easter Island is the way it works its magic on you. No cell phone here, please! An idle hour is an hour well spent (although there are Internet cafes with slow connections when you do feel the need to connect back home). With so many options, combined with the island mood of taking things at your own pace, we offer free time to let you customize your trip to fit your own desires.

One possible option for those who wish additional hiking may be to join our tour leader for a hearty hike up Teravaka, the highest point on the island. This 507 meter (1650 foot) peak offers fantastic views of the surrounding area. Of course, we will feast on delicious island food for our Farewell Dinner, and thank our hosts who have been gracious enough to invite us into their homes.

 

Day 6 - Departure
Easter Island cheersThis morning take a last look at your favorite Moai, or wander around town, as most travelers will depart on the afternoon flight and make it in time for overnight connections to North America or Europe.

Or Arrange a private tour in Santiago, Chile. Contact us for personal travel in Mainland Chile to the capital of Santiago, the resurgent hillside port city of Valparaiso, the colorful pristine Atacama Desert or other destinations.

Trip FAQ

Where does the tour start and end?
This tour starts and ends on Easter Island.

 

What is the activity level and bike style for this tour?
This trip is designed for active travelers who will enjoy daily hiking and biking, with optional horseback riding and other island adventures.

 

What if I am traveling alone?
Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it's usually because they're looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn't have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you'll be traveling with friends. You don't need to pay the single supplement if you're traveling alone. We'll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself.
