Silversea Luxury Cruises À EASTER ISLAND

EASTER ISLAND
EASTER ISLAND

Easter Island, the easternmost settled island of Polynesia, received its European name in 1722 when the island was seen by a Dutch expedition under Roggeveen on Easter Sunday. The triangular-shaped island of 163 square kilometers is famous for the hundreds of statues known locally as moai. Rolling hills covered in grassland, eucalyptus forest and a rocky shore surround Hangaroa, the island’s only village on the southwestern coast. View more

This is where Captain Cook landed in 1774, where missionaries built the first church and where ships find the best protection from winds and swells. Small beaches and transparent waters invite swimmers and snorkelers, but it is the cultural aspect which attracts visitors. Since 1935 the island has been a National Historic Monument and today 43.5% of the island is a national park administered by the Chilean National Forest Corporation and Mau Henua, a local community group. The island’s national park has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. Found slightly more than 3,500 kilometers west of Chile, the island was annexed in 1888. Used as a sheep ranch for many decades, the island was opened in 1965 and an airstrip was built. The US Air Force set up a base to record the behavior of the earth's outer atmosphere and by 1987 NASA had the runway extended as an emergency runway for the space shuttle. This never happened, but tourism benefitted from this improvement and today the island receives more than 100,000 visitors a year.

Excursions depuis EASTER ISLAND

Exploring Rapa Nui (indigenous name of Easter Island)

Take an unforgettable tour of Easter Island, known first as Ahu Hanga Te'e. Commence this spectacular tour with a 20-minute drive along the south coast towards Ahu Vaihu to visit the ruins of a circular plateau filled with mystically arranged stone monuments referred to as a platform. A short drive follows to Ahu Tongariki, formerly the largest platform on the Island destroyed by a tidal wave in 1960, but since reconstructed.


From there, continue to the spectacular Rano Raraku quarry, so symbolic of the island and the original "factory" of the moais, the giant stone head statues for which Easter Island is known around the world. These gigantic statues cover the inner and outer slopes of the volcano; they can be admired in the different stages of production, from carving in the rock to upright position, and lying face down on their intended road to their platforms.


The next stop is the beach of Anakena where, according to native legend, Hotu Matua first landed on Rapa Nui. At this site see the Ahu Nau Nau, the awe-inspiring line-up of moais that was partially restored in 1978 by Rapa Nui archaeologist Sergio Rapu. Located in this same area is the Ahu Ature Huki. The moai standing on this ahu was the first moai to ever be re-erected on an ahu. This restoration was done by a group of islanders working with Thor Heyerdahl and the Norwegian expedition in 1956.

In Anakena, a great buffet lunch awaits you in a shaded area overlooking the beach. After lunch, there is free time in Anakena to swim or stroll on the beach.


Next, drive up to the ceremonial village of Orongo, one of the most significant archaeological sites in Rapa Nui National Park and the most visited place on Easter Island. It was the center of the birdman cult established in the 18th and 19th centuries in an attempt to restore the society after the collapse of the moai culture. Clans would gather at the village each year, and their champions would compete in a kind of triathlon to elect island's religious leader.


Orongo village consists of some 53 elliptically shaped houses having shale walls and a small square entry overlooking the ocean, where the clans would live during the ceremonies. Remaining through the last period of ancient times, this was a historical landmark in the Rapa Nui culture.


Return to the pier.

Hanga Roa Village & Moais

Explore the ancient legacy and culture of Easter Island during this scenic and informative, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Easter Island, Ahu Akivi, Moais

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive north to Ahu Akivi, one of the main sites of this island. 'Ahu' is the native word for a ceremonial platform, or altar, on which the famous moai stand. In contrast to the monumental statuary at other sites on the island, the moais at Ahu Akivi face the ocean. Built in 1460 B.C., probably at a time when the statue cult was beginning to unravel, it is one of the 'youngest' ahu of the island, and was completely restored in 1960 by archaeologist William Mulloy. Following your visit, re-board your coach and head to Ahu Tahai.


Ahu Tahai, Ahu Ko Te Riku, Ahu Vai Ure

Located just outside Hanga Roa Town and adjacent to the cemetery, Ahu Tahai is a complex consisting of three different ahu sites; Ahu Ko Te Riku, Ahu Vai Ure and Ahu Tahai. Ahu Ko Te Riku features a beautiful, single statue placed on a platform dating from 690 B.C. The statue is in good condition, and has white eyeballs with dark pupils. Ahu Vai Ure is home to five different statues, whereas Ahu Tahai, named after the entire complex, has a single large moai. Restored in the late-1960s and dating from the 6th century, it is believed that this complex is one of the oldest ancient statue sites on Rapa Nui.


Hanga Roa Village, Artisan Market, Handicrafts, Jewellery, Local Church, Statues

Leaving Ahu Tahai, re-board the coach for a brief sightseeing drive en route to Hanga Roa Village. Upon arrival, a shopping stop is made at the famous Artisan Market. Some free time is made available to browse the market for locally-made handicrafts, including stone moai replicas and traditional, hand-made jewellery, whilst interacting with local merchants. From here, take a guided stroll to the nearby local church, which is decorated with spectacular, carved-wood statues; a syncretic vision of Christianity and indigenous spirituality. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.

Hike to Rano Kau visiting Orongo

Hike to the Rano Kau area in this experience that is sure to give you memorable landscapes as you make your way to one of the island's craters and to visit the important Orongo village.

Near the narrowest border and to the far West of the volcano it is found the ceremonial village of Orongo, one of the most significant archaeological sites in Rapa Nui National Park and the most visited place on Easter Island. It was the center of the birdman cult established in the 18th and 19th centuries in an attempt to restore the society after the collapse of the moai culture. Clans would gather at the village each year, and their champions would compete in a kind of triathlon to elect island's religious leader. Orongo village consists of some 53 elliptically shaped houses having shale walls and a small square entry overlooking the ocean, where the clans would live during the ceremonies. Remaining the last period of ancient times, this was an historical landmark in the Rapa Nui culture.

Traditional Refreshments, Body-Painting and Songs

As a special treat, you are invited to enjoy a glass of natural fruit juice and poe (traditional cake) at this remarkable location whilst enjoying Takona, a traditional form of Rapa Nui body-painting exclusively staged for your visit. During traditional ceremonies, Rapa Nui people paint their faces and bodies, thus preserving the technique of mixing natural pigments and describing the meaning of the painting whilst accompanied by musicians singing traditional songs. The Rapa Nui culture developed body-painting in a particular way that incorporated original motifs, which had great importance as a part of the body's decoration and helped to make the tattooed designs stand out. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.

Terevaka Hiking

Leaving the village of Hanga Roa you will drive until arriving to the remains of the old sheep farm at Vai Tea.

Here, discover 394 statues in various stages of completion. You can explore deeper by following a second, steep trail up to the crater of the volcano, where a quarry was excavated to create nearly all of the existing, immense moais. The volcano's crater has a depth of over 164 feet (about 50 metres) and 200-foot-high (about 61-metre-high) walls, thus creating a natural reservoir used throughout time by the islanders. It conserves an enclosed garden of priceless Polynesian and native species that create an appropriate microclimate for the main preserve of flora on the island. At the foot of the volcano is an artisan market.


Ahu Tongariki, Huge Moai, Vertical Sea Cliffs, Blue Waves Breaking on Them

Next, continue on for a visit to Ahu Tongariki. This magnificent platform is the largest ahu on the island and home to 15 moai, the heaviest of which weighs a whopping 86 tons (about 78 metric tons). This site was completely destroyed by a tsunami in 1960, but the ahu was restored from 1992-1995 by the University of Chile. The landscape is breath-taking; huge, almost vertical sea cliffs comprise the shores, and the blue waves breaking on them makes for a splendid photo opportunity. Leaving Ahu Tongariki, head to Anakena Beach.


Anakena Beach, Ahu, Lunch, Rapa Nui Music and Dancing, Free Time, Swimming, Ahu Akivi

The most famous beach on the island, Anakena features warm, crystal-clear waters, white sands, luminosity, and coral sand-bed. Here, the expeditionary groups of Ariki (King) Hotumatua arrived, the first settlers of the island. It also was the habitable centre of the ancient government, and school of the ancient Maori (teachers). Upon arrival, find two, totally-restored Ahu (Ahu Nau and Ahu Ature Huki). Learn about the mystery of the moai, including the meaning of becoming living monuments and protectors of their people by installing the white coral in the cleft of the eyes. A buffet lunch is followed by a performance of Rapa Nui music and dances. Afterward, some free time is made available for a dip in the ocean. Your World Cruise Collection tour concludes with brief stop at Ahu Akivi, and a short drive back to the pier.
