We have created a new South American all-Inclusive package for anyone looking to book a last-minute Easter holiday. The ‘eggs-perience’ begins in the Galapagos where Easter coincides with the start of the hatching season for rare green sea turtles. From a new small luxury catamaran, the Athala II, guests spot and interact with extraordinary wildlife on a journey of a lifetime.
For those with a little more time, the adventure continues on to Easter Island or Rapa Nui, home of the famous Moai statues and the intrepid ‘bird-man’ cult – where youths swam shark filled waters and climbed high cliffs carrying an egg to win exclusive collection rights for their tribe. Today, visitors can explore Orongo and its museum to see the tiny stone houses that sheltered the competitors and hear more about rituals of the last indigenous tribe of the island.
One week on board the Athala II costs from £4995pp. A three-day, activity packed extension (with cultural tours, boat-trips, cycling and hiking) at 5* Posada de Mike Rapu additionally costs from £2495pp. Prices are based on 2 sharing, including international flights, all meals, selected drinks and tours: subject to availability, terms and conditions.Additional stopovers in Chile, Peru and Ecuador are available on request.
