When is the best time to visit Easter Island?
December to February is the busiest time to visit Easter Island. It's peak season, and February also sees the Tapati Rapa Nui Festival. If you're searching for return flights to Easter Island over this period, it is wise to try and book everything (your airfare, car rental, accommodation) as soon as possible. For travellers who want to travel out of peak season, look to booking your return flights to Easter Island for April, May September, or October. These are the island's shoulder months, and it's a good time of year to try to find cheap flights to Easter Island. The only downside? April and May usually record the most amount of rain, so be sure to pack for your trip accordingly.
What is the best way to get around Easter Island?
Due to the island's size, it's possible to explore some of the sites on foot. Hanga Roa is a small town, and you can walk to some nearby caves, viewpoints and archaeological sites. Some of the most popular sites include the Rano Kau volcano and the Poike volcano.
Explore Easter Island by hiring a mountain bike for the day. A full day's rental costs around $12,000 CLP ($23 AUD). However, if the dates of your flights to Easter Island fall over the summer months, consider taking out the bikes in the early morning or later afternoon to avoid the peak heat of the day.
If you’re booking tickets to Easter Island for a short trip, you might think about renting a car for while you’re away. You’ll be able to see more of Easter Island's attractions, and you won't have to rely on a group tour. Rentals are available from Mataveri International Airport (IPC), or you can book a car through Webjet when you buy your plane tickets to Easter Island.
An easy way to get from Mataveri International Airport (IPC) and around the island is with a taxi. You’ll need to coordinate a drop-off and pick up time with your driver as there isn’t great mobile signal on the island. It’s a good idea to brush up on some Spanish for your flights to Easter Island as English isn’t widely spoken.
Te Ao Tour Bus
One of the newest forms of public transport on Easter Island is the Te Ao Tour Bus. It departs from the main street in Hanga Roa and stops at various attractions. Travellers can use it to visit the Handicraft Market, Anakena and Hanga Vare Vare. It’s an affordable option for tourists buying airfare to Easter Island with prices starting as low as $7,000 CLP ($13 AUD) per person.
What should I know before visiting Easter Island?
Where is Easter Island?
Easter Island is a remote island in the Pacific Ocean. It's 3,746 kilometres from mainland Chile, and LATAM Airlines operates regular return flights to Easter Island from Santiago. The only other way to fly to the island is from Tahiti.
Spanish is the official language spoken on the isle, and it’s a good idea to brush up on basic Spanish phrases before you board your flights to Easter Island.

Having some Spanish up your sleeve will be especially helpful should you need specific assistance or travel requirements.
How Many Days Should You Spend on Easter Island?
You should spend at least five days on Easter Island. While you can easily explore the whole island in three days, it’s a good idea to add buffer days to your flights to Easter Island. The island frequently experiences strong winds which can delay or cancel flights going to or from Mataveri International Airport (IPC)
