Ports

Valparaiso

Set around a magnificent harbor and against a backdrop of snow-covered mountains, Valparaiso is the capital of the Valparaiso Region, Chile’s principal port, and a delightful city to explore. Stroll its cobbled streets and quiet plazas, or head to Muelle Prat, a lively market. Just an hour inland is Santiago de Chile, founded in 1541 by the Conquistadors, and an impressive city of Spanish Colonial styles and old world, European architecture.

Santiago is the economic and cultural hub of the country, occupying a spectacular basin at the foot of the highest peaks of the Andes. Linger on leafy squares, visit the Palacio de la Moneda, see the pre-Colombian art museum and soak up the colorful street life of lively markets or the more sophisticated districts of Providencia and Las Condes.

Easter Island

Billed as the most remote inhabited island in the world, Easter Island is known locally as Rapa Nui. It adopted its more familiar name after one Johannes Roggeeveen discovered the island on Easter Sunday, 1722. Like him, you’ll come face to face with the ancient Moais. About 800 of these giant statues, representing high chiefs of competing tribes, are dotted around the island. Some weigh up to 80 tons and it remains a mystery to this day how they were quarried and moved before the wheel was even invented.

Pitcairn Island

Lying below the tropic of Capricorn, halfway between New Zealand and the Americas, the Pitcairn Island group is surely one of the most remotely inhabited in the world. A well deserved title, indeed, Pitcairn Island is the final resting place of the H.M.S. Bounty and its mutineers. Later, Pitcairn became the first Pacific island to become a British colony. Today it remains a breathtakingly beautiful retreat from the world.

Bora Bora

No name captures the imagination of paradise as well as the French Polynesian island nation of Bora Bora. Majestic mountains sculpted by ancient volcanoes, a shimmering lagoon and a barrier reef dotted with tiny motu or islets welcome visitors to perhaps the most stunning island in the South Pacific, and generations of travelers — including novelist James Michener — regarded Bora Bora as an earthly paradise. Approximately, a mere 4,600 people live a seemingly idyllic lifestyle in the main villages of Vaitape, Anau and Faanui.

A look beyond its bustling waterfront will reveal the island paradise French artist Paul Gauguin came to explore and embrace. The island’s lush interior is a canvas of deep green valleys, 7,000 feet-high peaks and cascading waterfalls. On the south shore lies the Gauguin Museum at Mataiea while at Tautira on the north coast, other famous names like Captain Cook and Robert Louis Stevenson came to call. Back in Papeete, visit the restored ancient temple of Arahurahu Marae or shop for cultured black pearls.
