Itinerary
Arrival in the Easter Island Airport. Reception in the Airport with flower necklace and transfer to your selected hotel.

Our tour starts at 3:00 pm approximately from Hanga Roa to Ahu Akivi, the first restored Ahu by science in the Island in 1960. This Ahu with 7 Moai Statues is one of the few in the center of the Island, with its statues facing the rising sun. Reportedly, they represent the 7 explorers sent before the arrival of Hotu Matua to get to know the Island.

Then, we will visit the Puna Pau quarry, in a small crater of red scoria. Here the Pukao or headdress of the Moai were obtained. There are still some unfinished and abandoned pukaos. And we will finish at the Ahu Huri a Urenga, where we will find the four-arm Moai so-called the astronomer because is aligned with the southern winter solstice (June 21)

Return to Hanga Roa.

Departing from Hanga Roa's town at about 9:00 am, going to Ahu Akahanga, so- called the "Platform of the king". The legend tells that Hotu Matua'a's tomb is near this place. There, we will find 4 platforms, 12 Moai statues, 8 Pukao and towards the interior of this Ahu; it is possible to see the best-preserved village of the island.
Later, we will go to Ahu Tongariki, with 15 Moai being the largest Ahu of the island. After that, we will meet Ahu Te Pito Kura, which possesses the highest statue of the island raised in an Ahu, the Moai Paro (10 meters of height and 85 tons with a Pukao of 11,5 tons). Near this ceremonial temple is the great spherical stone that is identified as the Center of the World (Te Pito o Te Henua), as the legend tells, it was brought to the island by Hotu Matua'a in his craft.
After that, we will arrive in Ahu Nau Nau, temple of a complex construction due to its different levels where we will find 5 Moai statues with Pukao. There, we will see petroglyphs in the backs of the statues. We will continue our excursion to the Rano Raraku volcano and quarry, where there was carved most of the Moai of the island, using the volcanic rock of its hillsides. There are an estimated number of 400 Moai in several stages of carved. Finishing our adventure, we will go to the Anakena Beach. It is a beach of white sands chosen for the arrival of the Ariki Hotu Matua'a and his sister Avareipua. Anakena is the name of a small cave in an adjacent gully.

Finally, we will visit the Orongo Ceremonial Village, old and magnificent ceremonial city located in the western side of the Rano Kau volcano. It features 53 elliptical houses made of sandstone and a small square window looking to the sea. In this place, the most important ceremony of the second period of Easter Island was carried out: the election of the Tangata Manu (Bird-Man), this ceremony stopped being performed 150 years ago, due to the arrival of the first Christian missioners.

We had a change in our plans to visit Easter Island because of flight delays but Gianina Lillo was able to contact the tour company at the last minute and make changes in our itinerary. We enjoyed the flower greeting at the airport when we arrived on Easter Island. We enjoyed two very good tours with Patrice of Aku Aku Tours. We also had a very good stay at Hotel Otai. it is in the middle of town, so very convenient to shops and restaurants. The hotel grounds are beautiful with flowers. It is clean and quiet. I'd definitely recommend VisitChile for travel arrangements. All the information was accurate, very timely, and with good value for our money.
