Aside from flying, options for getting to Easter Island are fairly limited.

Cruises to Easter Island

Cruise ships are increasingly making a short stop here. By boat, the only other viable route is from New Zealand on Tallship Soren Larsen, which completes the seemingly endless voyage in 35 days, but only once per year.

Car Rental and Taxis on Easter Island

Getting around is far easier. Tourists can rent cars, usually jeeps, as well as dirt bikes and scooters. There are specialist places that offer rentals but often the easiest way to arrange a vehicle is to ask someone at your hotel reception. Given the island’s small size, bicycle is among the best ways to get around, and bikes are readily available for hire.
