Not sure if any one can offer some assistance. I'm trying to book a trip to the Easter Islands but its working out quite expensive. Does anyone have any tips on how I could get their without paying for an expensive tour?

I'm thinking of going towards the end of March for about 3 weeks.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Amanda

Wish I could help. I tried to do the same, but found it very difficult - and expensive. There are so few flights in and out that you probably have to stay there a whole week; and I am told you will see everything in three days, maybe twice.
Good Luck, and I hope you can tell us the best way to make the trip.

Wilf.

p.s. I love your travel reports.

Hey Ananda,

I was in Easter Island in Dec 2005, so over 9 years ago. It's best to book flights online with LAN Chile and try to book a room online too. Or contact them by email. However, you should find a room on the stop anyway.

You will be bored for three weeks. I went for four days, three nights I think. It was plenty. If you hire a bike, you will see everything in a day and a half. But you can also hire a taxi for a half a day, starting with sunrise over Tongariki. You can also do horseback riding.

Don't go on a tour. I will try to dig up some practicalities from my old notes...

Let me know if you have any other questions...

Ciao,
Krys

Krys,

Thanks so much for your advice, especially the idea of renting bikes - that sounds like fun. My trip was to include Chile, hence the three weeks, but I take on board the suggest length of stay.

I'll comeback to you once I've sourced some flights.

Thanks very much
Amanda

Hello Amanda
I am just going there, to spend there Easter :) after some 20 years
from my first visit.
Our friends are right - do not book the tour.
Find two separate flights using skyscanner: from your place to
Santiago and second SCL to IPC.
Then find last expensive accomodation via booking.com
That's what I do.
Good luck!
Wojtek
