Historic Pathways Tour

Unearth some of the gems of Easter Island´s fascinating past with stops at several significant sites of interest. Head to Puna Pau, the small crater that acted as the scoria quarry for the moai's famous topknots, before continuing to the site of the island´s most intricate stone work at Ahu Tahira in Vinapu, where the moai platform is reminiscient of the legendary masonry of the Incas of South America. Take in the breathtaking views at the giant cauldron of Rano Kau, a miniature eco-system and the largest volcano crater on the island.   Experience the wind on your face at the clifftop ceremonial village of Orongo, and discover the significance of the Birdman Cult that emerged out of the ruins of the Moai building era. Peer off the precipice at the ocean below where once a year during the Birdman competition, brave warriors from the island's various clans would climb down the steep rocky cliffs to the swirling ocean below and swim out to the small islets off the coast in an attempt to bring back the first egg of the manutara bird, therefore winning the right for their clan to rule the island for the following year. Finish the day with a visit to Ahu Akivi, the renowned seven inland moai that stand gazing oceanwards, and explore the large and unique cave system of Ana Te Pahu, known affectionately as "The Banana Cave".   This excursion can be done as a private tour or as a small group tour. The Historic Pathways small group tour runs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for between one and eight people. The maximum amount of languages spoken on the tour will be two (usually English or Spanish). Pick up from your lodgings is between 9:30AM-10:00AM. Lunch is not included in the tour, but there is an opportunity to have lunch at a small restaurant in Hanga Roa halfway through the day.

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.
