Climb to the summit of Maunga Terevaka, the tallest of three main volcanoes that Easter Island is comprised of. The long but gentle hike takes you to the 504 m (1,644 ft) tall peak of the extinct volcano. Bring suitable footwear to embark on the three- to four-hour hike along isolated, grassy slopes. From the volcano’s highest point, you can enjoy a stunning 360-degree view of the whole Rapa Nui island on a clear day. Do the trek by foot or on horseback; bring refreshments for a picnic on the windy summit. Using our international travel planner, Hanga Roa attractions like Maunga Terevaka can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
