1. Easter Island, Chile
Known for its more than 1,000 Moai statues, Easter Island may be famous, but it’s isolated—more than 3,200 kilometres away from modern civilization. The statues were sculpted by the Rapa Nui people from volcanic rock between AD 1250 and 1500. The island’s three peaks—Terevaka, Poike, and Rano Kau—are comprised of the same ancient lava and create a visually stunning landscape. Flights to and from Easter Island are limited, as are conveniences like air conditioning—but anyone who’s been will tell you it’s worth the trip.
