Easter Island - Rapa Nui

"Mysteries and legends of ancient people enrich the Polynesian landscapes of the navel of the world."

Overview

Easter Island is a remote and small island in Polynesia of just 163 km² and 7,000 people located 3,700 km off the northern coast of Chile. Its original inhabitants prefer Rapa Nui, the name given by Polynesian navigators, although the original name is Te Pito Ho Te Henua (“the navel of the world). It is considered the island par excellence for its isolation.

Rapa Nui is famous for its archaeological sites, including the nearly 900 monumental stone statues called moai, erected by the islanders between the 13th and 16th centuries. The moai are anthropomorphic carved figures with enormous heads, often resting on ceremonial stone platforms called ahus.

Rapa Nui is of volcanic origin and is made up of three coalescing volcanoes. The arrangement of these volcanoes and the strong erosion they have suffered give the island its very characteristic triangular shape.

Climate & Temperature

The island has a fresh subtropical climate, with mild temperatures throughout the year and winters without frost or extreme cold. There is little thermal oscillation both daily and annually. Rainfall is distributed regularly throughout the year. The average annual temperature is 20.5 °C reaching its maximum of 23.7 °C in February and a minimum of 18.0 °C during August.
