Explora Rapa Nui Hotel - 3 Nights itinerary

The hotel’s treks, mountain biking and sea excursions are great ways to explore and discover the landscapes, history and culture of this unique region.

Every evening the hotel’s guides meet with guests in the lodge, bar or living room area. There, they will explain all of the next day’s available “Explorations” and help you choose the best excursion option according to your interests and abilities. The maximum group size is 8 travelers, and a bilingual Explora guide leads every Exploration.

Just as the hotel believes in healthy exposure to nature, they also believe in healthy exposure to other travelers, therefore, they do not offer private expeditions. The guests at Explora are sociable people with stories to tell and adventures to share, which makes it likely that the people you meet during the journey will be as important as the destination itself.

The following list includes descriptions and details of the hotel’s “Explorations.”
