Tour - Ahu Akivi the Seven Moai of Rapa Nui

Half Day Tour 

Departure from your hotel to Ahi Akivi, one of the few platforms on the island where the Moais face the ocean. Legend tells that these structures represent the seven explorers sent by King Hotu Matu’a before his colonization voyage. After this visit we will continue our trip toward the site of Puna Pau, a small red scoria crater, location at which the Pukao were made, a kind of hats or topknots placed on top of some Moais of the island. Finally, visit Ahu Uri Aurenga, which has a single statue and has the distinction of having an orientation in the line of the winter solstice, marking not only the beginning of this season (tonga), but also the time of different taboo (prohibitions) regulating fishing and other activities on the island. Astronomically it is also facing east, lined with two neighbouring hills, and Maunga Mataengo and Maunga Tararaina, as well as 2 smaller Ahu nearby. Finally, return to your hotel.
