Fly from Ireland to Chile via London and spend eight days exploring this beautiful country, before continuing to the amazing Easter Island.

From the cosmopolitan capital of Santiago, to the stunning mountain side vineyards of Colchagua and the unique landscapes in the Atacama Desert, northern Chile boasts some unforgettable highlights.

Add to this mysterious Easter Island, one of the most isolated places on earth endowed with the striking moai statues, this 14 day magical tour offers the very best this region has to offer.

Known as Rapa Nui to the locals, this island offers visitors a unique experience amongst its volcanic cones and windswept grasslands. Relax on the pink-sand beaches and of course, marvel at the monumental moai statues. There are over 1,000 of them across the island, bearing silent witness to a long-lost, complex society.

Believed to have been settled by Polynesian inhabitants around 1200AD, the island was reached by Europeans in 1722. One of the remote places on earth, Easter Island's nearest neighbour is Pitcairn Island- a mere 2,500 kilometres away.

Tour highlights: 

  •  Santiago city tour
  •  Visits to wineries in the beautiful Colchagua Valley
  •  Explore the Tatio Geysers and witness a stunning sunset at Moon Valley, Atacama Desert
  •  Spot Flamingos on the Chaxa Lagoon by the incredible Atacama Salt Flats
  •  Witness the strikingly enigmatic statues of Rapa Nui (Easter Island)
  •  Relax on the white sands of Anakena beach
