"Be the change you want to see in the world."
Easter Island Spirit was founded to provide visitors with a professional and highly personalised experience on Rapa Nui, while at the same time ensuring a sustainable and low-impact tourism for the island.
Founded by James Grant-Peterkin, James fulfilled a childhood ambition when he first set foot on Easter Island in 1996, and has been in love with this unusual island ever since. He studied the island’s unique linguistic situation (the mix of Spanish and Rapa Nui) for his undergraduate dissertation at Cambridge University, and has been leading and organizing tours of the island since 2000.
When not leading tours, James also presents the Tapati Rapa Nui, the two-week cultural festival that takes place on the island each February. See here for more information on this unique festival. He is the author of the best-selling guidebook to the island, and is the British Honorary Consul on Easter Island, recently featured in this BBC article.
James has recently written an article about the proposed Marine Reserve around Easter Island for the World Today magazine here.
