Easter Island - Mysteries & Myths



Joseph travels to the most remote inhabited place on earth during his Easter Island adventure. Located more than two thousand miles off the coast of Chile, Rapa Nui (the island’s native name) offers a world of mysteries - many that still remain unanswered. Questions abound surrounding the origins of the Rapa Nui culture, their enormous carved stone moai and the cause of the island’s ecological and natural disasters and the Rapa Nui people’s near demise. Although one question invariably leads to another, Joseph attempts to explain what often eludes explanation while he spotlights the amazing journey of the Rapa Nui people from the shores of Polynesia more than 1,500 years ago through their glory days and times of turmoil to the vibrant culture that flourishes today.

imageEaster Island or Tepito Ote Henua (“The Center of the World”), as people who lived there once called it, is the most remote inhabited island on the planet. No other land mass is as isolated, which gives it an aura of mystery. Easter Island is a National Park and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and offers something for everyone: pink sand beaches like Ovahe, the heavenly charms of Anakena, volcanoes and grasslands to explore on foot or on horseback, marine life you can see on diving trips, silent caverns and the Moai statues that bore witness to the rise and fall of a very complex and stratified society. We invite you to experience the mystery. Click here for more info.
