On Easter Island, there are three main volcanoes. Ma'unga Terevaka is the tallest at 1,700 feet. You'll need a good pair of hiking shoes, bottled water and your stamina to tackle it on this exhilarating hike.

Begin your day with a panoramic drive to the Vaitea area -- center of the sheep-farming industry in the 19th century.

Set out on your uphill trek from here, walking up a steep gradient to the top of the volcano. Dominating the center of the island, Mount Terevaka boasts jaw-dropping panoramic vistas set off by the deep blue Pacific Ocean gleaming on the horizon.

After filling your camera with trophy photos, begin the trek back down to the motorcoach.

On your way back to the pier, you will pass Ahu Akivi with its seven statues, all directly facing the sunset during the spring and autumn equinoxes.

Please note: This tour is for guests who are physically fit and are able to trek for long distances uphill over several hours. Please realistically assess your fitness level before booking. Wear sturdy walking shoes. Easter Island has a hot and humid climate. Bring bottled water from the ship; there is nowhere to purchase water on tour. Minimum age is 12 years.
