Maunga Terevaka, Easter Island

(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Maunga Terevaka is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Hanga Roa Edition.

  • This is the highest point on the island, the peak of the largest volcano and a long hike on foot. That's why we got there on horseback. Very nice ride and the views were indescribable. We could see th...  more »
  • Can be reached on horseback, in a charming journey, crossing the hills (and the entire island, as it is in the extreme north). Enjoy the forests of eucalyptus and the tranquility and solitude of the road; maybe see some walkers in the distance. Horses are tame and you don't have to be an experienced rider to face the walk. If you are walking, we must think in about five hours, but to get to the top of the island is to congratulate the effort. They are the two options to reach, by car is not permitted. There may be rain, which does not make the crossing and enjoy it. See the island and its isolation in the Pacific, only water and clouds for all sides.
