    Moai Route Tour (Hanga Roa)

    Enjoy a full-day tour along the Moai route. Start the tour with a visit to Vaihu, a place surrounded by enormous statues that have toppled face down. Next, stop at the ruins of Akahanga. Still in their original condition, they are the location where the first king of the island was buried.


    See the Rano Raraku volcano located further along, close to the southern shore of the island. At the base of Poike, the most spectacular crater in the zone, former islanders carved giant statues from the volcano’s quarry — they are 20m (65t) long and just under 200 tons.


    Carry on toward the beautiful beach of Anakena, to see Ahu Tongariki, the largest of the 15 Moais on the island; they weigh an average of 50 tons and were destroyed by a tidal wave in 1960. Before Anakena, we will check out of Te Pito Kura and the Moai of Ahu Nau Nau.
