Stop At: Easter Island, Easter Island

Throw on your hiking boots and spend the day exploring Easter Island's last frontier, the Poike peninsula. Closed to vehicles since 2005, this remarkable place truly is off the beaten track. Highlights on this hike include the panoramic view from the volcano summit of Pua Katiki, Vai a Heva (a water receptacle carved in the form of a huge face), and several small moai dotted around the peninsula. With its barren slopes, jutting cliffs, isolated ancient statues, and the interesting legends pertaining to this remote part of the island, an excusion to this fascinating place is a must for anyone wanting to dig deeper into the island's history.
