Full description
After pickup from your hotel in Hanga Roa, start the tour with a visit to Ahu Vaihu and Akahanga. These temples are where Pukaos hats have been placed on top of some Moai statues. Akahanga originally contained about a dozen Moai and is believed to be the burial site of the Polynesian king Hoto Matu’a. Continue the journey and head to Rano Raraku, a volcanic crater that also contains a lagoon. The volcano has historical significance for the island, because the Moai were carved on its slopes. Currently, 397 of these impressive sculptures remain there. Then visit the most amazing Ahu, a ceremonial platform, on the island. Ahu Tongariki is the largest ceremonial site with an impressive row of 15 upright Moai. It is one of the most visited tourist spots in Easter Island. The Tongariki Moai underwent a restoration process, not only due to the collapse caused by the tribes that lived there, but also due to a large tsunami that damaged and moved some statues. Finally, finish the day resting in Anakena, the most popular beach on the island. In addition to its natural beauty, what makes it a unique beach is a row of Moai that face away from the sea. Admire this unique landscape before returning to your hotel.
