What you can expect
Depart from Anakena port on Easter Island to visit Ahu Vaihu and Akahanga, temples formed by stone platforms or altars where Moais (huge monolithic figures carved in volcanic stone) and Pukaos (the hats or upper knots previously placed on top of some Moai statues) are assembled together. Continuing our journey, we will go to Rano Raraku, a volcanic crater formed by consolidated ashes, which also contains a lagoon. The volcano has historical significance for the island, because the Moais were carved on its slopes. Currently 397 of these impressive sculptures remain. Then we will visit the most amazing Ahu, a ceremonial platform, on the island. Ahu Tongariki has 15 huge moai. But in fact, it is Te Pito Kura that has the largest statue erected on an Ahu, the Moai Paro, 10 meters high and 85 tons in weight. Next to Te Pito Kura we will find a large spherical stone that is identified as the navel of the world: Te Pito or Te Henua. Finally, we will finish our 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 moais that face away from the sea. Anakena is definitely a unique landscape to enjoy before returning to our hotel on Easter Island.
