The Seven Explorers - Akivi
3 Hours - per person in double room - Code AKU005
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.
