WONDERS OF EASTER ISLAND (AZC 004)

Easter Island is an evocative name that triggers imagination. This island is one of the world’s most isolated spots and represents the mystery of a culture and a history that few people really know.

Lost in the middle of the Pacific, this volcanic island hides the most amazing treasures which you will visit during your stay. The “moai” statues, caves, craters and beaches give this unique land a very special atmosphere. A magical encounter with the past awaits you here. It is all silence, vastness, mystery and legend.
