7 Reasons to Visit Easter Island.
In 1995, Easter Island was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With its remote location - over 3000km from mainland Chile - and infamous maoi statues, it's a one of kind destination that must be added to every wanderlist out there.
3. Climbing to the Top of a Volcano
At the southernmost point of Easter Island lies Rano Kau - a biodiversity of lush green vegetation and a fresh water filled crater. Offering almost 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, standing on the top and feeling nothing but the breeze blowing in off the sea is a hard to beat experience!
4. Being at one with Nature
Easter Island is protected predominantly by Rapa Nui National Park. Therefore, the wild horses and cows are often found roaming freely. Roaming freely through fields, along the beach and in the roads. It's quite an experience having to stop what you're doing to allow the herd to pass by.
7. Visiting one of the Most Remote Inhabited Islands
As if it wasn't incredible enough to be seeing the infamous maoi statues for yourself in person, visiting Easter Island actually puts you about as far away from civilsation as you'll ever be! That's a pretty amazing place to find youself. Nothing for miles except the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
