Rapa Nui Stargazing Experience
Learn about the Polynesian voyagers and archeo-astronomy of Rapa Nui on Easter Island’s only hands-on stargazing experience. Look at stars clusters, planets, nebulae and galaxies through our high-powered telescope before taking spectacular shots of the star-filled sky with moai in the foreground at Anakena Beach.
Stars to Sunrise
Enjoy the magic of the early morning sky through our telescope near the fifteen moai of Ahu Tongariki before the star-blanketed sky fades with the spectacular light of the dawn. Taking place about 7-8 hours later than our regular stargazing tour, the sky that is visible in the early morning is totally different to what can be seen just after sunset.
Terevaka Night Hike
Experience the outdoors at night, hiking to Easter Island's highest point under the silver light of the moon. Hear how Polynesians used the night sky for navigation in ancient times, as well as some of the stories and legends attached to different stars and asterisms.
Take your photography to the next level, capturing the moai of Easter Island beneath the spectacular backdrop of the Milky Way. Visit Ahu Naunau and Ahu Ature Huke at Anakena Beach, Huri a Urenga, Hanga Kio'e and other sites of interest along the coastline, capturing incredible images of the sky on one of the most isolated islands in the world.
