|CHILE / Easter Island / March 2021|
NO TWIN ROOMS LEFT
March 18 - 21, 2021| $2,840
The enigmatic Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, with its spiritual monuments and giant Moai statues tells the story of the unique culture of its ancient Polynesian people. Located 2,300 miles or a five hour flight from the coast of South America, Easter Island is a tiny volcanic rock, surrounded by the clearest, deepest waters on the planet. The island’s very remoteness lends it an unmistakable authenticity and an aura of mystery. This is where the mystical Rapa Nui culture created the enormous stone Moai standing as a testimony to its unique and complex past, while its language, music and traditions are kept alive by the island’s native population.

|ECUADOR / February 2021|
ONE SHARED SPACE & TWO SINGLE ROOMS LEFT
The Wonders of the Galápagos
February 15 - 23, 2021 | $4,990
The enchanted Galápagos Islands, with their volcanic, otherworldly landscapes, are a magnet for wildlife lovers. Until their discovery in 1535, the islands were completely isolated from the mainland, so the species living here developed to adopt to this unique environment, and are different from anywhere else in the world. Until recently, these animals had no exposure to people and never learned to fear them, so they are extremely tame around humans. The islands’ moon like landscapes of mist-covered volcanic peaks, red sand beaches, and strange forests of prickly pear cactus are full of prehistoric looking iguanas, giant tortoises, doe-eyed sea lions playing with you while you snorkel, vividly pink flamingoes, blue-footed boobies performing their "sky pointing" dance, and hunting penguins swimming around your legs.
