Highlights of Rapa Nui

This tour looks to fit in the must see highlights of the island in one day, mixing the best from the Moai Monuments Tour and the Historic Pathways Tour. Beginning at the seven statues of Ahu Akivi, the only restored inland group of moai, survey the history of the Rapanui people and the various theories on why they constructed the moai and how they transported them. From there, head to Anakena Beach and Ahu Nau Nau, the cradle of Rapanui civilization, where the royal family lived and the first Polynesian voyagers arrived. Soak up the sights at this palm-fringed golden sand beach and jewel amidst a coastline of jagged rocks before continuing to Ahu Tongariki, the largest line up of moai on the island. Fifteen colossal megaliths stare down from an incredible height, now restored to their former glory after having been overthrown by the islanders during the 18th century.   Explore the volcano crater and stone quarry of Rano Raraku, the birth place of the statues, where about a thousand moai were fashioned and over three hundred still lay in various stages of carving. Towards the end of the day, drive the road along the rugged south coast before ascending up to the mile-wide volcano crater of Rano Kau - the most stunning natural wonder of the island. Enjoy the late afternoon light visiting the ceremonial village of Orongo, where once a year, certain warriors and chiefs from each of the island's clans would dwell for a month before a competion of epic proportions would take place, determining the island's next Birdman and ruler for the following year.
