Mystical Easter Island

His BIG eyes were glowing white!

His face was cocked skyward, in a most unusual stare, the morning sunshine reflecting off his white, shell-covered eyes. Some of his friends were looking down, while others stared straight forward, as if lost in their thoughts. But what were they thinking? More important... what was their purpose?

The hundreds of mysterious, monolithic Moai stone statues standing erect on volcanic Easter Island, have long intrigued travellers, archeologists, scientists and historians alike, ever since their initial discovery by Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen in 1722.

It inspired the famous 1947 Kon-Tiki voyage by Norwegian adventurer and ethnographer Thor Heyerdahl, who documented how ancient Polynesians were able to sail across the vast Pacific Ocean on bamboo sailboats, to inhabit this small and secluded tropical island paradise, plunked in the middle of nowhere.

Join Voyageurfred for the adventure, as he takes you on another wondrous odyssey, to reveal the fate of the mystical Moai people, their famous stone statues, and the life and traditions of their descendants, who live today on Rapa Nui. A tour of historical and vibrant Santiago, Chile's capital - rounds off this fabulous tour.

It's a vibrant and colourful 90-minute multimedia show, featuring entrancing Polynesian and Chilean music, infused with the history and culture of this remarkable island, imbued with lively travel lore, and Frederic’s always amusing - Tales from the Trails.
