The world´s most isolated living museum View on Google maps
Standing atop the edge of a volcanic crater and seeing the curvature of the earth, it’s not hard to believe that no other landmass in the world is as remote as Easter Island. Surrounded on all side by thousands of miles of empty Pacific Ocean, Easter Island is a treasure trove of over 600 extraordinary ancient stone Moai sculptures carved by the indigenous Rapa Nui people, whose extraordinarily unique culture thrived in isolation for over a millennium.
"I moved to Chile under the condition that we could visit Easter Island – it was still three years before I went with my husband! We went with our best friends, visiting from Spain, and it turned out to be a completely unforgettable journey, full of stories and anecdotes. We spent days eating tuna cooked in every way possible, and we were lucky enough to see some of the traditional Rapa Nui dances in the Tapati festival. Unforgettable!"
