Silversea Luxury Cruises À EASTER ISLAND

EASTER ISLAND
EASTER ISLAND

Discovered (by the Western world) on Easter Sunday, 1722, Easter Island is one of the most isolated places on the face of the Earth, some 2,300 miles from the Chilean mainland. Although more Polynesian than South American in character, the 64-square mile island was annexed by Chile in 1888, and is now famous as the world’s largest ‘open air museum’ on account of the Moai, or human-like stone statues, that can be found on the island. The island’s national park has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. View more

The Moai remain very much a mystery, which archaeologists are still trying to unlock. The ancient language of the Rapa Nui is one of the keys to understanding this culture. One of the other mysteries are the texts written on the so called ‘rongo rongo tablets’. The island owes its origin to three volcanoes: Poike and Rano Kau had erupted first and were later connected with Maunga Terevaka‘s eruption. It is not known when or how the island was first populated, but the most credible theory suggests that the Rapa Nui people came from other Pacific islands. Scientists debate as to when this occurred, the earliest claim sees this happening in the 4th century AD. In addition to the cultural and archaeological interest, there are two beautiful beaches, transparent waters, and a few coral reefs as might be expected of a Pacific Island.

Excursions depuis EASTER ISLAND

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.

Orongo, Rano Kau & Ahu Tahai

Experience the volcanic beauty and history of the Rano Kau Volcano and its surrounds during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Rano Kau Volcano and Viewpoint

Depart the pier for the short drive up towards the Rano Kau Volcano, which dates back over 2.5 million years. It is renowned for its cliff and crater-lake, which is approximately one mile (about 1.6 kilometres) in diameter and approximately 918 feet (280 metres) in depth. Upon arrival, a photo stop is made at the Rano Kau Volcano for spectacular panoramic views of your surrounds. Afterward, re-board your coach and head to the ceremonial village of Orongo, located near the narrowest border and to the far-west of the volcano.


Orongo Village, Elliptically-Shaped Houses

Orongo is one of the most significant archaeological sites in Rapa Nui National Park, and the most visited place on Easter Island. Orongo was the centre 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 the island's religious leader. Orongo Village consists of some 53 elliptically-shaped houses with shale walls and a small square entry overlooking the ocean, where the clans would live during the ceremonies. A memento of the last period of ancient times, Orongo is an historical landmark in the Rapa Nui culture. Following a guided walking tour of Orongo Village, continue on for a visit to the impressive Ahu Tahai.


Ahu Tahai, Ahu Ko Te Riku, Ahu Vai Ure, Ahu Tahai, Hanga Roa Village

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. Leaving Ahu Tahai, you may re-board the coach and commence the scenic drive back to the pier via Hanga Roa Village, or opt to be dropped off in town and return to the ship on your own.

Silversea Expedition - Trekking Maunga Terevaka Hill

Experience the highest point on Easter Island in a healthy new way during this scenic and invigorating, half-day hiking excursion to the peak of Terevaka.


Easter Island, Terevaka, Guided Hiking

Depart the pier for the short drive to the base of Terevaka. Upon arrival, receive your safety and hiking instructions, then begin your guided hiking adventure. Your approximately 1.5-hour, 3.1-mile (about five-kilometre) ascent passes through forests and meadows en route to the top of Terevaka. At a height of approximately 1,680 feet (about 512 metres) above sea level, Terevaka is the highest peak on Easter Island.


Peak of Terevaka, Spectacular, 360-Degree Views, Free Time, Photos

Upon arrival at Terevaka's peak, take in spectacular, 360-degree views in all directions. Following some free time to enjoy the views, rest and take incredible photos, begin your approximately 1.25-hour, 3.1-mile (about five-kilometre) descent to the base of Terevaka. Upon arrival, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.

Takona (Body-Painting) at Ahu Tahai

Embrace the culture and traditions of Rapa Nui in a unique new way during this fascinating excursion to Ahu Tahai.


Easter Island, Ahu Tahai, Ahu Ko Te Riku, Ahu Vai Ure

Depart the pier for the short drive to the 7th-century Ahu Tahai, restored in 1967 by archaeologist William Mulloy and one of the oldest dated sites on the island. Upon arrival, enjoy a fascinating insight into the culture of Rapa Nui. Although the name 'Tahai' is used generally to describe the site, it does, in fact, include three different ahu (temples); 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.


Ancient Boathouse, Henhouse and Boat-Ramp

This site offers a unique opportunity to learn about burial rituals and the relation of old Rapa Nui people with sacredness. In addition, see a restored hare paenga (boathouse), hare moa (henhouse) and a boat-ramp, as a recreation of everything that marked the existence of the Rapa Nui culture, around its beliefs and resources.


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 on Horseback

Experience the scenic splendour of Easter Island in a unique and relaxing new way during this unforgettable, half-day horseback-riding excursion to the peak of Terevaka.


Easter Island, Terevaka, Guided Horseback-Riding

Depart the pier for the short drive to the base of Terevaka. Upon arrival, receive your safety, riding and tour instructions, then mount your horse and begin your guided horseback-riding adventure. Your gentle, approximately 60-minute ride passes through forests and meadows en route to the top of Terevaka. At a height of approximately 1,680 feet (about 512 metres) above sea level, Terevaka is the highest peak on Easter Island.


Peak of Terevaka, Spectacular, 360-Degree Views, Free Time, Photos

Upon arrival at Terevaka's peak, take in spectacular, 360-degree views in all directions. Following some free time to enjoy the views, rest and take incredible photos, mount your horse and begin your descent to the base of Terevaka. Upon arrival, dismount your horse and commence the short drive back to the pier.

World Cruise Collection: Rapa Nui Culture Discovery & Lunch at Anakena Beach

The ancient history, culture and traditions of Easter Island are yours to discover during this picturesque, full-day, World Cruise Collection sightseeing excursion.


Easter Island, Ahu Tahai, Ahu Ko Te Riku, Ahu Vai Ure

Newly-designed especially for our valued World Cruise guests, your World Cruise Collection tour begins with a short drive to Ahu Tahai. 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. Leaving Ahu Tahai, re-board your coach and continue on to the Rano Raraku Volcano.


Rano Raraku Volcano, Statuary, Volcanic Crater, Garden, Artisan Market

Upon arrival at the Rano Raraku Volcano, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, take a guided, approximately 765-yard (about 700-metre) trek up the walls of the volcano, where 95% of the moais were carved. 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.

Day 3 - EASTER ISLAND

After a leisurely breakfast meet your guide and head along the southeast coast at Ahu Hanga Te'e in the sector of Vaihu. From Vaihu continue on to the Ahu Akahanga also known as the "platform of the king". According to legends this is the site where the bones of the first king of Easter Island (Hotu Matua) are buried. 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 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 tour continues along the north coast and passes through La Perousse Bay to stop at Ahu Te Pito Kura. This is the site of the largest moai ever transported and erected onto an ahu. The moai paro stood at 9.8 meters with an estimated weight of 82 tons. Its top knot alone weighs approximately 11 tons. It is also believed to be the last moai to be toppled, sometime in the 1840's.


The next stop is the beach of Anakena where according to native legend Hotu Matua first landed on Rapa Nui. At this site you will see the Ahu Nau Nau partially restored in 1978 by Rapa Nui Archeologist 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 onto an ahu. This was done by a group of islanders working with Thor Heyerdahl and the Norwegian expedition in 1956. A tasty boxed lunch is served in a shaded area at Anakena Beach or at Rano Raraku Volcano.


From Anakena, take the inland road for a visit to the incredible Rano Kau volcano and the Orongo ceremonial village, site of the famous "birdman" competitions that came to an abrupt halt 150 years ago when the first Christian Missionaries arrived to the island. From this peak, look out at the panoramic view of miles and miles of ocean, and the tiny islands of Moto Iti, Moto Kau Kau and Moto Nui.


Enjoy your final dinner on the island this evening.

The 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 tour continues along the north coast and passes through La Perousse Bay to stop at Ahu Te Pito Kura. This is the site of the largest moai ever transported and erected onto an ahu. The moai paro stood at 9.8 meters with an estimated weight of 82 tons. Its top knot alone weighs approximately 11 tons. It is also believed to be the last moai to be toppled, sometime in the 1840's.


The next stop is the beach of Anakena where according to native legend Hotu Matua first landed on Rapa Nui. At this site you will see the Ahu Nau Nau partially restored in 1978 by Rapa Nui Archeologist 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 onto an ahu. This was done by a group of islanders working with Thor Heyerdahl and the Norwegian expedition in 1956. A tasty boxed lunch is served in a shaded area at Anakena Beach or at Rano Raraku Volcano.


From Anakena, take the inland road for a visit to the incredible Rano Kau volcano and the Orongo ceremonial village, site of the famous "birdman" competitions that came to an abrupt halt 150 years ago when the first Christian Missionaries arrived to the island. From this peak, look out at the panoramic view of miles and miles of ocean, and the tiny islands of Moto Iti, Moto Kau Kau and Moto Nui.


Enjoy your final dinner on the island this evening.
