Nestled in the heart of the Pacific, the archipelago is composed of 4 volcanic islands of which only Pitcairn is inhabited. It is located between New Zealand and Chile. The nearest territories are Easter Island and the remote south eastern islands of French Polynesia, the archipelago of Tuamotu and Gambier. The islands are known for being the home of the mutinous crew of the Bounty and their Tahitian wives, an event recounted in numerous books and films.
