Is Easter Island on your bucket list? If so, you may consider checking that particular item off your travel bucket list in the near future, as Explora Rapa Nui has recently unveiled brand-new Easter Island tours to help you make the most of this one-of-a-kind destination.


Always wanted to learn to scuba dive? A new Discover Scuba Diving tour includes a lecture on diving theory, and a controlled immersion session preps you for a diving excursion in Hanga Roa Bay.


On a Mahatua hiking tour, you’ll spend a half-day hiking along the coastline, discovering archaeological sites and remains as you go, while also enjoying a bit of beach bumming.


If you’d prefer to bike your way across the island rather than hike, a new Anakena half-day tour takes you to Ahu Tongariki and its 15 intact moai. The tour also includes visits to archaeological ruins along the coast.


A Caves & Cliffs tour includes both biking and hiking as you check out some lava fields, caves and tunnels, as well as oceanside cliffs and moai.


More new tours await, but all are available at reduced rates, if you act fast. Explora offers savings of up to 30 percent on travel through Oct. 10.
