Mysteries and Treasures of Rapa Nui 5 days

Day 1: Hanga Roa

Arrival on Easter Island. Reception at Mataveri Airport. Transfer to a hotel in Hanga Roa. Overnight.

Day 2: Hanga Roa-Moai Route-Anakena Beach-Hanga Roa

A full day tour, along the Moai Route visiting the “Ahu” (ceremonial platform in ruins) Vaihu, a place surrounded by enormous statues which have fallen face down, and the Ahu Akahanga, where the first king of the island was buried. Further along, visit to the Rano Raraku Volcano, which is the most spectacular crater in the zone and where the former island-people carved the giant statues from the volcano's quarry, situated close to the southern shore of the island. Here it is possible to observe the different stages in the Moai construction, the biggest one still remains at the basis of the quarry and is more than 20m long and weighs just less than 200 tons. Afterwards, visit Ahu Tongariki, the biggest Ahu on the Island with 15 Moais, destroyed by a tidal wave in 1960 but restored to its original position. Finally, an expedition to Te Pito Kura, an ancient settlement with a mystical circular stone, finishing at Anakena Beach. Free time to enjoy the warm sea waters that surround the island. In the afternoon, return to the hotel. Box lunch is included.

Day 3: Hanga Roa-Volcán Rano Kao-Orongo-Hanga Roa

Half-day tour to the Rano Kao Volcano, whose deep crater of lush vegetation contains a large fresh water lake covered with totora. Afterwards, expedition to the Cultural Centre of Orongo, situated at the top of the crater at over 300 m above sea level and where every year the Bird Man or Tangata Manu ceremony takes place. There are more than 100 petroglyphs that represent the Make-Make god and the Manutara seabird among others. Visit to Ana Kai Tangata, a cavern where the island people took refuge during times of war and where many pre-historic paintings can be seen. Finally, visit Ahu Vinapu, where the interesting architectural style reminds us of the Inca's legacy, due to the perfection of the cuts and location of the stones. Return to the hotel. Overnight.

Day 4: Hanga Roa-Ahu Akivi-Hanga Roa

Half-day excursion, visiting Ahu Akivi, a big platform, which is composed of 7 Moai's, all of them facing the sea; the Ana Tepahu Caverns and the quarry of Puna Pau, where the top part of the Moai's were sculpted (named Pukao, which means "typical hairstyle"). Finally, visit to Ahu Tahai. Return to the hotel. Overnight.

Day 5: Hanga Roa

Transfer to Mataveri Airport at the agreed time for the departure flight.
