4 Hours - per person in double room - Code AKU005
Our tour starts at 3:00 pm approximately from Hanga Roa to Ahu Vinapu, built in the year 1,200 A.D. This place has 3 Ahu. The first with 6 Moai Statues painted in red, the second one with 1 Moai that it supposed to be female with two heads, and the third one, the oldest one, that remains only removed stones. 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. After that, we will visit 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. Finally, we will visit the Te Pahu cave, that It used to be residence and a temporary shelter. Return to Hanga Roa.
