4 DAYS OFF-THE-BEATEN-PATH

EASTER ISLAND

Few areas in the world possess a more mystical pull than this tiny speck of land, one of the most isolated places on Earth. It's hard to feel connected to Chile, over 3,700km to the east, let alone the wider world. Endowed with the most logic-defying statues on the planet – the strikingly familiar moai – Easter Island emanates a magnetic, mysterious vibe.
