Easter Island to Atacama: Nature & Culture

Cost

from £2,600 pp

(ex international flights)

Duration

12 days

From the ancient archaeological wonders of Easter Island to the Martian landscapes of a sky-scraping desert, our “Easter Island to Atacama: Culture and Nature” tour will immerse you in the natural wonders and cultural diversity of our unique country, Chile. We’ll start our journey on Easter Island, a tiny, remote speck of land in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. This island has been home to the Rapa Nui people for thousands of years, who crafted the giant rock “Moai” statues that dot the island’s landscapes. We’ll explore those ancient archaeological sites, learn about local culture and traditions, and discover the treasures of this Polynesian gem. Returning to the mainland, we’ll then explore the highlights of Central Chile, such as the capital city of Santiago, the colourful port of Valparaiso, and the idyllic wine valleys. The trip ends in the Atacama Desert, the driest desert in the world, where we’ll discover otherworldly landscapes like steaming-hot geyser fields, timeless lunar valleys, highland lagoons, hazy mountains and volcanoes, and some of the most spectacular night skies on the planet.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
