This is a one of a kind voyage combining the best of romantic French Polynesia and mysterious Easter Island. 

The changing colors from the dark blue of the ocean to the turquoise shades of the lagoon when you approach the coastline are the promise of a haven hiding treasures and wonders. Joining a cruise aboard the Haumana is having the opportunity to admire these beautiful waters being surrounded by those who know the islands of Tahiti: the Polynesians.

After our amazing Tahitian experience, we'll visit one of the most remote and mysterious places in the world, Rapa Nui or better known as Easter Island, surrounded by infinite blue Pacific Ocean.

It has been the cradle of a unique and enigmatic culture that continues to endure today under the watchful eyes of the enormous carved stone Moai. Our adventure finishes in Santiago.

This is a not-to-be-missed adventurers' holiday.
