EXPLORA EASTER ISLAND - THE PLACE

With its location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and home to a culture whose origins and evolution are still largely unknown, Easter Island is an attractive and mysterious destination.
A mild year-round climate allows for walking the island’s geography and traveling along the coast of numerous ahus that are home to the gigantic sculptures called moai.
Who, when and why were these sculptures created? It is a mystery.
It is presumed that the island has been inhabited since the earliest centuries of our times, and the moai are hundreds of years old.

Today visitors can share with the descendents of this ancient culture and who preserve their ancestral customs in the face of the advancement of Western civilization.
