Easter Island

This island is located in the Pacific Ocean 3700 km from the continent and is of volcanic origin. The best way to get to it is by plane. There is only one village on the island, Hanga Roa, where the entire population of the island lives.

Tourists go here to see giant statues of volcanic basalt and tuff, here they are called “moai”. These statues stand on platforms called “ahu”. All this was created by the locals to protect them from evil spirits. People to this day wonder how it was possible to put such large boulders. Those who wish to find the answer to this question should go to the local quarries.

On Easter Island, there is the archaeological site of Orongo, which is located next to the crater of the volcano, you can admire the Rano Kau volcano. There are also beaches where you can swim and sunbathe.

Archipelago of Juan Fernandez

This archipelago is interesting because one of its islands is described in Daniel Defoe’s book “Robinson Crusoe”, and now this island has the same name. The prototype of Robinson Crusoe was the English sailor Alexander Selkirk, who was thrown onto the shore of this island after the shipwreck.

The archipelago is a large National Park covered with dense forest, where many species of plants, animals and birds are protected. The only village of San Juan Bautista is located on the island, and its inhabitants are engaged in catching lobsters. Tourists will be able to visit the cave where Robinson Crusoe hid and see the places that were described in the famous book.
