Easter Island originally named Rapa Nui (Navel of the World); this is the most isolated island on earth. Located in mid-Pacific six jet hours from Santiago, the island is an open-air museum best known for over 600 gigantic statues (moais) that mysteriously stand with their backs to the sea. The ancient civilization that inhabited the island had an organized society, written language, masterful building techniques, and a complex religion. Next we travel to Peru where the topography is as epic as its history. This is an “Open-Air Museum” arguably with no equal. Here you will wander around colonial cities, visit the ancient Incan capital of Cuzco, explore the lost city of Machu Picchu and ponder the mysteries of lost civilization.
