  • Easter Island

    Easter Island

    Over 2000 miles from the coast of Chile, in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, lies mysterious Easter Island, created out of ancient volcano eruptions. Into the mind’s eye springs the image of huge stone faces staring into the ocean, statues that represent one of the least understood cultures in the world. The small community of Orongo keeps the traditional dances and songs alive, although the engraved stones that could reveal the highly developed civilisation of the past still cannot be transcribed. Explore the island by foot and discover ceremonial sites and huge rocks patterned with strange and delicate lines.

Best Time To Go and Weather

The best time to visit Chile is in our winter (their summer) months. Chile is a very long and thin country extending over 2600 miles, yet has an average breadth of only 100-200 miles. Much of Chile has a mountain climate with perpetual snow and glaciers in higher parts. The lowlands of northern Chile, from the border of Peru southwards are one of the driest regions in the world, despite heavy cloud cover from April to December. In Chilean Patagonia there can be frequent rain, even in summer and the strong winds are especially noticeable in spring.  In Santiago, the climate is Mediterranean with days that are generally hot in spring and summer and nights that are cool by comparison.
